Stunning flowers, the perfect vase, you’re full of inspiration and enthusiasm but …still struggling to get your arrangement to look like you imagined?
It looks easy enough – but until you try making stunning arrangements like the one pictured here it can be difficult to appreciate the skills involved in getting it “just right”.
Whether you want to start your own floral business or make beautiful arrangements for your home, you can learn the necessary skills to reach your goals.
There are a number of alternative classes for floral design by way of traditional (read as BC – before computers) methods of learning and these are still very popular.
But … thanks to technology you can study almost anything from the comfort of your own home, in your own time – all you need is a computer and an Internet connection. Floral arranging is no different, there are number of options available.

Allow me to introduce you to James Earley Master Florist, who has put together a really good programme – a gem in fact.
Who Is James Earley?
James is a Master Floral Designer and owner of Royal Bouquet Florist Inc. as well as the founder of the online Flower Design Training programme.
In this short video James explains how to make your Hydrangea floral arrangement last up to two weeks.
James Earley has taught at various adult education centres in the USA and over 1000 pupils have taken his online course.
James has an MBA in marketing and is a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Business Administration.
He admits that he has a “passion for gardening and flowers” which is as strong today as when he first started out.
James attributes much of his success to his enthusiasm but says that without customers he would have no business – “I am totally focused on customer care and satisfaction” says James.
- James is an expert floral design instructor and consultant
- James manages his own very successful retail florist shop and does all the flower ordering and flower processing himself

Combined with his MBA in marketing James has managed to change his passion into a business and lifestyle that he enjoys. And so some 1000 odd students ago “Flower Design Training” was born – not a bad feat considering everything else he packs into his very active flower life.

Is Flower Design Training Delivering on its Promises?
Here are some of the comments of present and past students:
“Hi Mr James

From F Murthen (taken from website)
“Enjoyed every moment of the class (You have such a calming voice too.) I shall be waiting patently for the next class, thank you again.”
from Brenda (taken from Website)
“Absolutely love it! Sat through several of the videos and have actually learned some stuff. I particularly liked his chiming clock going off in the background and the little captions. Great site. I’m going to watch all of it and then stun everyone with my arrangements!”
Jackie – Essex, England
This last review comes from a lady who was clearly a bit skeptical of the course to start with. I had asked her to look at the course and give me her opinion – knowing that she would be honest! As you can see she surprised herself by watching much more than she intended and found lots to like about the videos, including the sound of James’ chiming clock!
Other points that students have enjoyed and commented on include:
- The connected feeling of trust that they get dealing with, and listening to, James
- The detailed demonstrations of the videos and
- Unlimited access to the site.
Things to Be Aware of With This Floral Design Course.
There is a lot of superb information in this online floral design course to get through.
Unless you are a super quick learner and have acres of spare time, you won’t master everything about floral design in a few days.
But without any up-front fees, for less than $40.00 and with a “no questions asked 60 day money back guarantee” James guides you, step by step through his fabulous course.
At this point in time James does not present the tutorials in DVD format. He is aware that this would enhance your experience of his Online Floral design course and is working on producing DVDs of the program. It is really all about keeping the costs affordable.
What Is The Next Step?
Based on what is promised, what is delivered and, most importantly, customer satisfaction, I wholeheartedly recommend Flower Design Training as an online floral design school.
