We are celebrating British flowers for one of our favourite, flowery landmarks in the calendar, British Flowers Week, from 19 – 25 June.
Students at McQueens Flower School celebrate summer flowers with a collection of super-sized urns packed full of classic garden flowers.
McQueens Flower School continues to grow from strength to strength, and we are thrilled to welcome so many of our students on our work experience programme following the course. We recently had the pleasure of teaching and getting to know Francesca Scarloto. We asked her about her experience at McQueens Flower School. Congratulations on completing the […]
