Fresh Flower Cutting Garden

Perennial Garden early June

Flowers in bloom this week include: zinnia, amaranthus, celosia, rudbeckia, ageratum, statice, straw flower, sweet annie, gomphrena, gladiolus.

We have a large cutting garden of annual and perennial flowers and herbs. The flower season runs from June through early October. We are  currently growing over 150 different cultivars of flowers.  These are selected by  Sue and started in our greenhouse in late winter.

The flower garden is open to the public for  cut-your-own.   Someone is always available to assist you  and answer your questions about arranging, conditioning, and  at what stage to cut certain flowers.   If you are not  interested in cutting your own, or in a hurry, The Putman  Place has   pre-cut   and conditioned flowers at very  reasonable prices. We will also make pre-ordered arrangements.

The Putman Place provides the  scissors for cutting  and floral preservative to insure the longest vase life  possible. Harvest your own flower prices are:  15.00 for a gal  cardboard milk container or 45.00 for a bucket. 

hint: Bring your own bucket for easy  transport home.

For special occasions (weddings, reunions, showers)   we recommend that you contact us early. The garden yields  enough flowers for about 2- 3 weddings/ week. After the initial  contact is made (and the event "booked")  the client  visits the garden one to two weeks  before to finalize  the details and prices. We are not booking any additional weddings for the following 2017 dates:  June 17,  July 7, July 14, August 12  September 16, September 23, October 7.

The  Putman Place can also be your full service florist  by  creating, delivering and setting up your complete wedding  flowers from ceremony to reception. Click to view current Floral design Price List.

 Some groups choose to  book the flower hut for several hours (30.00/hr  fee) and have a design party  here  with a Putman Place design consultant. These  parties work like an arts and craft class ; all materials are  ready to be assembled and we assist you in the entire process of  making your designs from table arrangements to boutonnieres,  bouquets and large scale creations. Check out the  Floral Design Page to see some past Putman Place floral  creations.

The Kit:: This is for multiple,  identical table arrangements.   The client tells us how  many arrangements they want to make and loans us one of the  vases that they plan to use (i.e. mason jar).   "The kit "  includes   one arrangement in that container and enough  floral material for the client to make the remaining arrangements.    Prices range from 10.00   to     15.00/ arrangement. 

 We also have available for sale some  popular flower arranging supplies; floral tape, floral foam,  corsage pins and sticks, bouquet holders and can special order  vases and other  supplies.

Remember: for longer vase life, harvest  flowers when the temperature is as cool as possible (i.e.  before 9AM). If cut properly, most of our flowers will last at  least a week in the vase.
