Flowers

Flowers in bloom now:

The flower garden is starting to produce some early season perennials. Floral material available now includes: Baptisia, peony, sweet william, gold yarrow, millefolium yarrow, coral bells, snapdragon, lupine,clustered bellflower, lady’s mantle, calendula, lavender.

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 200 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 gardens and then select pre-cut and conditioned flowers.

Prices are:  15.00 for a ½ gal  cardboard milk container or 50.00 for a 2 1/2 gal scrub 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 2024 dates:  July 21, September 14, 21, October 5.

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.

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.
