With so many talented Interflora florists up and down the country, we thought it was about time we launched our own network of expert bloggers; giving you an insight into the every day life of a working florist on the high street and our florists an additional stage on which to showcase their amazing creativity and expertise.
Our expert florist blogs are a brilliant way to indulge your love of flowers, take a look behind the scenes of the industry and learn something new. Take a look at our latest recruits…
