A florist is to work alongside international designers at a floral extravaganza in Oxford.

Jo Marshall, owner of Valerie of Dore Florist, has been given a place by The Society of Floristry Trust to attend Flowers@Oxford, at The University of Oxford, next weekend.

She will work alongside some of the best floral designers from around the world and plans to use some of her new-found methods back in Dore.

Jo said: “This is a real honour. I intend to learn many new techniques which I can incorporate into my own business.”
