What our lovely clients have to say

“If you love flowers and would like to attend a floristry class then you won’t be disappointed if you book one at Stock Florist. A group of 6 of us were taught how to put together a gorgeous bouquet of flowers in a 2 hour master class. We were filled with lots of knowledge on the flowers we used and top tips on after care too. We were supplied with unlimited cups of tea and the cutest little cakes too! Prosecco was also available too! It was a great girls day and something different and I would recommend this to anyone who loves flowers! Thanks so much Stock Florist. Big shout out to Jan who run the class 💐”

Charlotte Game

“A brilliant afternoon of fun with flowers, an excellent tutorial by Jan, the smell of flowers is amazing and the colours suitable for all rooms.”
