Level 3 Diploma in Floristry 2011
Contemporary florist and businessman Adi Thomas has continued to successfully operate award winning Verdure Floral Design despite the impact of Covid-19.
The web based business, which has a UK-wide reputation for outstanding wedding and corporate event flowers, has seen demand for bouquets quadruple during the pandemic. The welcome surge has helped to offset turnover lost through cancellation of weddings and events.
To meet demand, business owner Adi and fellow directors have increased their creative and delivery teams and now employ ten professional florists on a split shift system.
Verdure Floral Design last year provided displays for 300 weddings and prestigious events, including a celebrity wedding at Lake Como in Italy. More recently, following the easing of restrictions, was a wedding at the Savoy Hotel in London.
Adi, who studied his Level 3 Diploma in Floristry at Reaseheath in 2011, is a regular exhibitor and award winner at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park. Last year he took a gold medal for his Fantastic Flower Bower and the previous year was awarded Best Exhibit in the Flower School plus a gold medal for ‘Dreams of India’, a display featuring a stunning elephant decorated with thousands of flower heads.
