GREENS SALE

We will be offering fresh cut greens to deck your halls, potted paperwhites, wreaths, swags and more. In addition, we will be selling sweet peas, succulent containers, and potting benches.

CUSTOM HOLIDAY CENTERPIECES & ARRANGEMENTS

Gamble’s expert flowers arrangers will be in the Tea House designing fresh centerpieces filled with greens. Arrangements start at $30.

Arrangements are custom made in either a container you provide or one you purchase the day of the sale.

Drop off your container in the Main House between Monday and Friday the week of Greens Sale between 9:00am-11:00am. Include your name, email and phone number.

Your arrangement will be ready for purchase and pick up on Saturday between 9am and 12pm at the Tea House.
