LOUISIANA (KPLC) - The Louisiana Horticulture Law states that no person can solicit business in the retail floristry business without the proper license, making Louisiana the only state that requires a license to arrange flowers.

According to the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, the requirements to qualify for the Retail Florist License are passing a written exam with a fee of $114 and paying a separate fee of $100 for the license itself.

The license allows the holder to arrange and sell floral designs and cut flowers and ornamental plants.

A new bill introduced in the 2018 Regular Session calls for the repeal of this regulation.
