OUR STORY

Awesome Orchids plants pots & more
"A boutique orchid shop in the heart of Sarasota"

What began as a hobby more than ten years ago when we set up our first table displaying and selling our orchids at the Downtown Farmers' Market in Sarasota, FL has grown to include our shop in downtown Sarasota in historic Burns Square (4 blocks south of Main Street), our website, our e-newsletter, In Bloom (sign up above) and, of course, our continued presence at the Downtown Farmers' Market.

We are a family-run business, connected by our love of orchids and our passion for our work. Drawing on our professional experiences in marketing, business and design, we share a vision to provide you with the highest quality, hand-selected, locally grown orchids at reasonable prices. At the heart of what we do is our commitment to exceeding your customer service expectations including custom-created arrangements, inspired lifestyle selections and delivery throughout Sarasota and the surrounding area.

In late September 2009, we opened our doors to our new airy and light-filled shop, just south of Ringling Boulevard, at 330 South Pineapple Avenue in historic Burns Square in the heart of downtown Sarasota. It's here, in our "boutique orchid shop in the heart of Sarasota", that you'll discover that airy and light-filled spaces are perfect compliments to our orchids, plants, pots & more. Every orchid that comes into our shop and onto our shelves is hand-selected from local, family-operated growers. Even before you take your first step into our shop you'll be greeted by our window displays of orchids and plants in our hand-selected, one-of-a kind glazed pots and containers, perfect indoors or out. Among our shop favorites are our lifestyle collections of colorful and fragrant candles and diffusers, whimsical pottery perfect for any room in your home, delicious Mediterranean-inspired specialty food products and garden accessories that will inspire year-round backyard, courtyard and, yes, even terrace plantings.

Our passion for what we do extends to our commitment to the community in which we live and work. We are proud of our support of local nonprofit organizations including the Boys & Girls Club of Sarasota County, Girls, Inc., Florida West Coast Symphony, Sarasota Fine Arts Society, The Junior League of Sarasota and others.

We hope you've enjoyed reading our story as much as we've enjoyed sharing it with you. It's been more than a decade, but, we feel like we've just begun!
