Flowers in bloom now:
The flower garden is closed for the season and will open in June when things start to bloom.
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.
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 dates: June 24, July 22, August 27, 2023
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.
Design Party at the Putman Place:
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.
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, bouquet holders, floral preservative, finishing spray and can special order vases and other supplies.
