Our flower school near Glasgow delivers a yearly programme of creative and sustainable floristry classes that celebrate seasonal flowers and garden-style flower arranging with practical tuition on sustainable, foam-free and plastic-free mechanics. We grow all of the flowers for our workshops on our flower farm which is a few paces away from our studio doors. Our workshops and courses are instructive and inspirational, providing tuition and support in developing our students' floral style and encouraging them to develop confidence and flair by building their floristry experience. By allowing yourself to be attuned to nature and its imperfections, your arrangements will in turn be more authentic and more beautiful. Our flower school is a haven of creativity, full of flowers and sparkling energy, where people come to learn something new, relax in a calm environment, be creative, brush up their floristry skills, start a career in sustainable floristry, meet with like minds, or to simply be around flowers. a significant part of many successful florist journeys. Rachel, still very much at the helm of Tallulah Rose, continues to push the school to be the very best!

"Just wanted to share my thank you for the flowers. They were perfect. Spent the service looking at them and thinking of him happy in his garden - and following him today along the coast, with the flowers in the sunshine - was exactly as I'd wished. So thank you for making this difficult day - and the process running up to today - easier and more beautiful."

FARM
TO
VASE

Every workshop we host is highly seasonal, arranging with what is readily available naturally and locally - from our own garden in the Hampshire countryside and the immediate fields surrounding it. You will have the opportunity to experience the beauty and variety of garden flowers through their organic forms, textures and colours. This is a chance to focus on a particular moment in the year. Whichever dates you choose to visit us, you will be surrounded by extraordinary natural materials - blossoming and decadent, wild and weedy, edible, medicinal and scented.

SUSTAINABLE 
ETHOS

We grow our flowers without the use of chemicals or artificial energy, in the season they were meant to grow. There are no air miles and all of our designs are made of natural materials that are fully compostable including all materials, mechanics and packaging. Our arrangements are suitable for natural burial services, green funerals, woodland memorials, and for those whose wishes are to have an eco-friendly funeral. Our funeral tributes can be safely left at a burial site or other place of remembrance. We are passionate about sustainability and work hard to minimise the environmental impact of our work. A lot of thought goes into how we grow and arrange our flowers. For more information on our sustainable practices and policy please click here.

"I would  like you thank  you again  for beautiful  flowers  for my sister. My sister was very unique, sensitive and intelligent. She loved wildflowers, garden  flowers and colourful, light pink and white roses and buttercups. I was looking  for  something light and spring-like, not heavy and classic  for funerals. Her grave looked beautiful, thank you."
