Kind words from workshop participants...

“Ingrid generously shared her knowledge of all the flowers with me…I would recommend Ingrid and any of her workshops or private one on ones for anyone in love with flowers as it is surely something you will never regret or forget!”


“My experience with Ingrid was so wonderful. She is so generous with her time and to her customers. She has a wealth of information and her flowers are absolutely beautiful. I’m so happy to have met her and look forward to coming back to do another workshop with her.”


“I learned so much about flowers and plants from details about the species to the care needed, etcetera…I particularly enjoyed is the level of passion and knowledge from Ingrid but also her love and respect for the environment. Her energy is clearly genuine which makes the experience even more special. I would highly recommend booking any workshop with Ingrid.”
