I currently use FLStudio and I make EDM and house music so I have experience, but I haven't had much luck with instrumental music. Mostly due to the lack of finding a good enough tutorial and not having a good enough sounding plugin.
Does anyone know of any good plugins that sound good? (I need plugins for strings (violins and cellos) and woodwinds.) Preferably free.
Also does anyone know of any good tutorials? Any advise would be appreciated as well.

The learning process itself is a fun way for you to stretch your creative muscles. Tutorials are certainly good to start, but much like drawing the best way to get better is to jump right in and get your feet wet with many hours of practice.
DSK plugins are a great suggestion. They're free with decent sound. I say the best thing you should focus on right now is learning harmony between instruments. Listen to your favorite songs and find out what makes their instruments complement each other.

But as said now thrice before, focus on good writing. You will do nothing with the good sounds if you cant write good music with them.

For plugins I use dsk stuff, they had a deal were you could give a small amount and they would give you a gigantic library with a lot of good samples. Also within FL you can add your own samples and trigger them or set them to whatever pitch you want. It's a bit tedious but i've gotten good results. Also Sakura and Sytrus are two really good plugins that can give you a lot so don't pass them by.
