“Six of the best Christmas flower courses”

The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers’ Christmas course (one or two days), London

Before I became a journalist, I worked as a florist at the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers. Gillian Wheeler, and her daughter Fleur, know so much about flowers. Their courses focus on the essentials and will give you the technical knowledge you need if you would like to make decorations for tables, doors or mantelpieces. The Academy also smells divine at this time of the year, thanks to all the spruce, cinnamon and oranges. One day, £220; two days, £390. Book here
