The Ivy Institute is a beautiful local business run by Nadine, a floral designer and educator with a passion for nature, botanicals and design. The Ivy Institute runs a number of intimate workshops and mentoring sessions suitable for flower lovers of all skill levels and stunning retreats where over 2 special days and nights you can immerse yourself in nature. 

Creative Bloom Sessions

Nadine can work with you to host a personalised and bespoke session at either a 2.5 hour micro level workshop or full-day training day experiences to suit your needs and experience level.


Are you just starting out in your floral journey and know you need the guidance and support of someone with extensive industry experience? Nadine offers both group and one-on-one sessions where you can unpack the issues you face and develop a personalised plan to move foward.  

Nestled on 50 acres in Lakesland, Nadine invites you to her family farm and home to offer you that seemingly rare time & space to immerse yourself in nature with a dedicated focus to evolve. 

Over 3 jam packed days you will be guided through Business mentoring discussions, floral education with hands-on practical sessions and how to refine your branding through our photography & messaging to tell your story.

But it won’t be all work, you’ll be nourished by chef-prepared healthy meals, feel pampered in your luxurious glamping tent under the stars by the lake and enjoy the connection of sharing this experience with a small and like-minded group of women.

The Greenhouse Store
Whether you're a weekend creative or an industry florist, you will be guided on a journey with nature like never before with The Greenhouse Store.

Nadine has gathered a bundle of workshops and mentoring sessions, as well as a few of her ‘favourite things’ from a selection of sustainable floristry products to thoughtfully & ethically handmade items.
