Question from Morgan C.
Hi! I'm signed up for the New York botanical garden fundamentals of form class. I saw that I need to purchase a floral tool kit. What is in that? How do I go about doing that? Thank you! -Morgan
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Morgan! You are welcome to source your own tools (a pair of floral clippers are the primary item you’ll need), but the school sell 4-piece toolkits for $89 if you like to purchase one from them. They are available at the Midtown office, and you can purchase one on-site before your class. The kit includes Floral clippers, a floral knife, wire cutters, and ribbon shears. In a NYBG zippered pouch.
