Eleanor Holt

Stunning Broomfield inspired florist Eleanor

So I just went for it. I loved it. The actual site at Broomfield is great. The way you can go out into the grounds and pick foliage and use the flowers in your work is brilliant. The course taught you pretty much all you need to know to be a florist – there was a wedding unit, funeral unit, hand tied unit, things like that. We also did health and safety as it relates to the job which was really useful. The college gave me what I needed to do the job I'm doing now.
