Q. How do I find a good florist - are their certifications or guides or just word of mouth or?
A. Like all professionals, time & experience are good credentials.
To "find" a "good florist" is usually a matter of convenience to the customer, and the professional business practice of the vendor. Always remember to support your local florist and begin to build a relationship with them. They want to build loyal customers, so give them a chance to meet you & learn what you like & expect.
In the same way, learn what your florist can provide for you. Go into the store! See who you deal with & what they have to offer.
Your florist is a very personal vendor who you will rely upon for all the special moments of your life - Births, religious events, Weddings, holidays, sympathy etc.
You should partner with an established, professional who is dedicated to the floral industry as a profession, not just a part time hobby. Insist on a FULL SERVICE, PROFESSIONAL FLORIST.
