Lovely pattern which will require you to learn how to read a crochet chart. First question -- are you a British or American crocheter? Your link took me to a British English version of the chart. It is important to keep in mind that American and British crochet terms vary a bit. For example, the American dc (double crochet) is the British tc (treble crochet).

Note that at the bottom right-hand end, it says "start here." This means chain 39, which is also provided as part of the written instructions.

Then you use 5 chains to give you the height to go up to the next row. For the next row you will be working from left to right. Match up the symbols to the symbol keys. You work 2 chains then work a British tc/American dc, ch-2, work British tc/American dc, etc. continue until you get to that section where you work the first floral edging. You would do a ch-5 then into the first chain of your foundation you would do a tc/dc ch-3, tc/dc ch-3,tc/dc ch-3, tc/dc chain-1.

Now you will be working row three going from right to left For each of those black circles you would "1 dc, 1 htr, 1 tr, 1 htr, 1 tr 1 htr, 1 dc." into each of the ch-3 spaces.

You do three of theses then ch-5 then tc/dc/ into either the middle of the previous row ch-5, or into the ch-5 space. I'm not sure what the pattern is asking for so I would try both and see which look I prefer. then work back doing the ch-2, tc/dc into the top of the previous tc/dc.

Hopefully this will get you started with the chart.
