    What would you like to learn about being a florist, floral design, or the fresh flower industry?

    If you could read a piece on floral design written by a professional floral designer, what would you be interested in learning about her job, about designing flower arrangements, or about something else about the floral industry? What kind of floral design tutorials would you be interested in seeing?

    It's hard to know what people outside of a profession would like to know about it so I'm asking for your help deciding what to write about floral design next. Thank you!

    What's the training required? Is it an entry-level position, or is there a class or school that florists go to prior to making arrangements?

      Thank you for the questions. You've given me a great idea for a hub.

      Thank you! That will take me in a direction that never would have occurred to me. It will take some serious thinking and analysis of the process and I am glad for the challenge.

    I would like to see an article on the flaws and virtues of some of the most commonly used flowers.

      That's a great idea for an article and one that should be useful for readers. Thank you for sharing your insight.

      I also like this idea. Sometimes I will cut the most beautiful flower from my back yard and it just doesn't last. So it would be nice to know which backyard flowers are the best for cutting and also which ones have really great scent

    How to make the green stuff to  make the flower stalks stick in

      I've actually been working on figuring that out because I recently learned the commercially available green foam is toxic. I've been experimenting with some things that should be safer and I plan to write about it as soon as I've got something good.
