The UK Florist of the Year Competition is perhaps the biggest floristry competition the UK has ever seen as each year we search to find the best florist in the country to be crowned the UK Florist of the Year. 

This year four florists took part in the grand final of the UK Florist of the Year held at BFA FleurEx - the UK's only Floristry Trade Show. The four finalist were those with the highest marks after the heat competitions held at BBC Gardener's World Live  which saw florists from around the UK compete over 2 days in front of estimated audiences of 95,000.

 After hours of competition work in front of a live audience the winners were announced at the BFA Gala dinner and glittering award ceremony.
