Pearsons School of Floristry

A bloomin' lovely spot selling stunning floral arrangements — and teaching you to make your own.

UPDATE: OCTOBER 09, 2020 — Pearsons Floristry's Darlinghurst store is temporarily closed but the school is still open and accepting enrollments.


A third-generation family business that originally opened in Bondi Junction, Pearsons has dutifully served Sydneysiders' flower needs for decades. The Pollack family still run the collection of stores today, including this one in Darlinghurst. Its gorgeous Oxford Street location is a colourful, bright addition to the strip, so if you're a sucker for a posey, a cactus or a native floral bunch, this is the ultimate treasure trove.

Plus, to pass on the matriarch's knowledge and expertise, the Darlinghurst space is now also used as an accredited floristry school. Pearsons School of Floristry has trained more than 2000 florists to date, and offer both short courses and one-day classes, for those flower fiends who arrange for fun.
