Participants in the Floriculture CDE gain real-world knowledge of all aspects of the industry relevant to production and retail of flowers, plants and foliage. Students must identify plants, make pertinent decisions in solving day-to-day problems that occur in any part of the business and complete an exam that tests their general knowledge. Skill activities, such as flower arranging and corsage design, allow students to showcase their knowledge and talent.
