About UsMy name is Jackie. I began working as a Saturday girl in a Florist at age of 13 - got the flower bug and have worked with flowers ever since.At 16 I started college on a day release and working full time in a Florist. I studied and achieved my City & Guilds Qualifications for Level 2 and 3 and went on to get my Level 4 - ICSF qualification.Working with flowers has always been a passion and was long before I had a business. I worked in various Florists in Southampton and Winchester.I had some time out to have a family and then set up AussieJax in 2011. To date, I’ve had over 20 years experience working with my flowers and still love it! In that time I have also taught Floristry to adults at a local college and was invited back to the college I studied at to be a judge for competitions. I have entered competitions myself through college and was 2nd for Florist of the year competition in my early 20’s! Whilst at college I was part of a team of Florists doing demonstrations at Chelsea Flower Show. I have done charity work for functions and events, worked in various Hotels and Barns - one of my favourites being Highcliffe Castle. I have also done work on the cruise ships too.I have a purpose built workshop at my home where I work from. Icall it my ‘Flower Pad’ and will often be in there working with my flowers and rocking to my tunes! I enjoy what I do, still love being able to smile on peoples faces withflowers and looking forward to the future with AussieJax.
