Answer: A florist is a person who handles flowers professionally. In Bangladesh being a florist is still considered an unconventional job. But it is not a bad career in the sense that a florist earns his living working among the daisies, violets, tulips, marigolds, dhalias, bellies, roses, and all other flowers. To be a florist one needs not to have any formal education or diploma. But s/he must have a good taste, good eye for colors, shapes, and proportion. S/he needs to have a good sense for selecting flowers, ribbons, and other accessories to make beautiful arrangements. Most florists learn the trade mainly through an apprenticeship in a previous flower farming job. But it is also possible to learn by attending formal floral schools and courses. However, a true passion for flowers and a bit of aesthetic sense are all that can make a florist’s career successful. A florist knows how to prepare flowers for display on a variety of events such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, marriage days, Valentine’s day, official receptions and even funerals. S/he knows how to create superb arrangements according to conventions and significance associated with flowers.
