Every year we supply numerous brides with a wonderful mix of our locally grown flowers. Design and consulting are not included in this DIY option. Call Susan with questions or special needs.

• I really want a professional to design my Bridal Bouquet, do I need
another florist? No, Susan can design beautiful bouquets for you, call for a
consult. (we like to keep the over-all minimum @$250 including any
buckets you order)
• When can I pick up the buckets of flowers?
Anytime you need them. Most brides pick up on Thursday or Friday. All
pickups are 9AM- 6PM. (we arrange Saturday pickups for
• How far are you from Boone?
We are 10 miles from downtown Boone, straight out Hwy. 421 north.
Please see the map and address below.
• Why are the May & October mixed buckets more?
Many of these seasonal flowers are grown in our greenhouse requiring
months of extra care. This is labor intensive. These buckets often include
special spring bulbs such as tulips, anemones and ranunculus. The higher
price also allows us to order flowers if the weather does not co-operate or we
are short on your colors.
• How does it work with the bucket deposit?
We charge a refundable $5 cash deposit for each of our buckets. They should
be returned within a week or two; clean and not broken of course. We return
to you all of the deposit. Please understand we can not put this on a credit
card without charging a usage fee. Another $10. Otherwise, we are losing
money on this service. Plan on this separate cash expense/deposit.
• Can I just bring my own buckets?
Yes, of course. Bring 2-3 gallon CLEAN buckets. Wastepaper baskets work
too. The Dollar store usually has some cheap ones. I repeat, clean buckets
that hold water. Your flowers will last so much longer.... so no ash buckets,
tar buckets, concrete buckets or horse buckets. Plan to bring a few extra
buckets. We will spread them out for you.
I think I want some roses or a few more traditional flowers, maybe
We will be happy to order what ever you need. Orders are by the bunch. 5-10-25 stems.
• What is the deposit to order flowers?
For buckets or designs it is 1/2 of the expected total. If buckets only, the
remaining may be paid on the day of pickup.
Cash, credit card - no non-local checks, the day-of please.
• Do you take credit cards?
We do. We prefer checks for the deposit and
credit cards for the balance. Credit Cards taken over the phone incur a connivence fee. Cash is welcome
- If this seems like too much, we can arrange the flowers for you. The minimum for a la carte design work is $250 and may include buckets of flowers. Otherwise, our bucket minimum is 1 bucket.
