Flowers in bloom now:
TheSweet William, Orlaya, baptisia, yarrow, coral bells, clustered bellflower, fleabane, ladys mantle, bupleurum, Lupine, campanula.
We have a large cutting garden of annual and perennial flowers and herbs. The flower season runs from mid 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 majority of the flowers are used by Sue for pre-ordered events like weddings, reunions, house parties. We only book one wedding/week but can take on other events depending on the time of year and size of the wedding. Any floral material not being used for the pre-ordered jobs is available to the walk-in public from our cooler.
We are no longer allowing cut-your-own flowers. You are welcome to walk around the cutting garden.
Prices are: 15.00 for a ½ gal cardboard milk container or 50.00 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. 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 2021 dates: June 19, 26, July 10, August 28, September 18,25, October 9.

Some groups choose to book the flower hut for several hours (40.00/hr plus cost of materials) 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. 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.
