We have a unique florist and greenhouse business, featuring flowers, plants and gift items for every occasion and every day. With our experienced, friendly staff of floral designers we can help you create a simple thank you gift, a special anniversary arrangement to let your spouse know how truely wonderful they are, a festive birthday bouquet or a stunning sympathy piece 

 

In our 11 greenhouses we grow all of our own bedding plants. We specialize in growing unique, interesing annuals and perennials.Our greenhouses are stunning! You won't believe your eyes....our hanging baskets are the prettiest in town! We have a large selection of vegetables too! Insanely HOT peppers are just one of our specialties. Rod and I and our wonderful staff will help you create beautiful gardens, container gardens and vegetable gardens. We strive to grow unique and different flowers and vegetables so every year there is something new and exciting for you to experience! We have a beautiful tree and shrub lot that is growing and expanding all the time. We also carry bulk mulch, black dirt and rock for pick up or we can deliver it to your home!

A local delivery fee of $6.00 will be added to each order, for each address. (For deliveries outside our local delivery area, this fee may vary.)

   

U.S. orders must be received before 12:00 noon in the recipient's time zone to assure same-day delivery. Orders received after that time will be delivered the following day.

   

We will do our best to accommodate deliveries at specific times of day, but we cannot guarantee it. Delivery of orders to rural route addresses or cemeteries cannot be guaranteed.

   

We will be happy to accept your international orders if you call our shop directly. We are unable to accept international orders over the Internet.

Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. however, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
