If flowers stopped growing, bees would have no way to make honey and little girls at weddings would walk down the aisle tossing handfuls of tree bark. Smell the roses with this Groupon.

Floral Design Institute
Established in 1969, Floral Design Institute now prepares more than 1,000 students per year to achieve their career-minded floral goals or broaden their knowledge of their hobby. School director Leanne Kesler and her staff of florists oversee the diverse curriculum, which ranges from such business-oriented topics as floral-shop marketing and finance to floral design lessons for anybody. Though most lessons take place on-location, distance-learning classes allow students to participate even while bound inside venus fly traps.
