Mary is a true gem, from whom I could not have been more privileged to learn. From the very first hour, it is immediately apparent that she sincerely cares about her students and their successes. She is immensely generous with her knowledge about the flower industry and the techniques you need to know to thrive within it, with her time and attention, kindness, and patience. There is a finesse to her that enables her to provide honest but gentle feedback about your work which only serves to make you better. She is very perceptive of each student’s individual talents and unique styles and draws the very best out from them. I absolutely loved my time at the school, I wish it didn’t end — but as I’ve told Mary, I’ll definitely be back for more!
