This module will help you to identify sixteen different types of cut flower and foliage. It will also provide you with the necessary skills to assess the quality and condition of all incoming cut materials. In addition, the module will explore conditioning, the method used by florists to prepare and hydrate their products for use. These skills will help you avoid wasting your product, which will protect your wages and the environment.

The module takes two hours to complete. After you have worked through the learning, you need to successfully answer a series of multiple-choice questions before being awarded a downloadable WorldSkills UK certificate.
