Flowers & Floristry

Where do you get your flowers?

We grow organic heirloom and hard-to-find flowers in our own garden and source the rest from local Monterey and Santa Cruz County flower farms. We take full advantage of being in one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, where fine flowers can be grown year round, and rarely find the need to import flowers from other parts of the country. A large part of our mission is to support local agriculture, which we see as an essential part of the Monterey County culture and economy.

What types of flowers do you use?

Our signature arrangements are a timeless, but modern, mix of seasonal flowers arranged in a natural garden-inspired style. We use only locally grown "premium" blooms (no carnations or baby's breath) and love to grow and source hard-to-find beauties. Some of our favorite flowers to combine are garden roses, dahlias, narcissus, tulips, ranunculus, anemones, hellebore, poppies, sweet peas, cosmos and phlox, along with arching branches, cascading vines, airy grasses and other unusual foliage that add depth and texture to our creations. We also get the most amazing protea, pincushion and banksia from a family-owned farm in Big Sur.

What flowers are available right now?

Flower availability is dependent on season and can further vary due to weather conditions, quality and market fluctuations. Email to find out what is currently in studio. That said, availability of our most-asked-about flowers is typically:

Roses – Year-Round

Peonies – May & June

Dahlias – July-November

Ranunculus – Nearly Year-Round

Anemones – Nearly Year-Round

Tulips – February-May

Daffodils – January-March

Sunflowers – July-November

How long will my flowers last? What can I do to make them last longer?

One of the benefits of sourcing locally is that we are designing with the absolute freshest flowers available to us, oftentimes harvested that very morning. While some flower varieties last longer than others, our cut flower arrangements should make it 5-7 days with proper care. The best thing you can do for your flowers is to change out the vase water daily with fresh, cool water and keep them away from direct sunlight and heat. If you give the stem ends a tiny trim, that's even better. Remove wilting flower heads or stems to keep the overall arrangement looking fresh longer.

Do you use floral foam?

Never. We actually achieve better results using recyclable and compostable mechanics that don't involve exposing ourselves and our clients to toxic substances. Being foam-free is just one part of our commitment to sustainable floristry.

What is sustainable floristry?

For us at Carmel Gardens, being a sustainable florist is the institution of design and business practices that reflect our commitment to our community, our planet, our health and our children. These practices include buying locally, eliminating floral foam, growing our vase recycling program, minimizing our packaging, and using only recyclable or compostable materials, just to name a few. Read more about our sustainable methods and why you should care here.

Weddings & Events

What types of weddings and events to you design florals for?

We have designed florals for weddings of every shape and size including elopements, micro weddings and vow renewals, corporate events, baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays, holidays, life celebrations and more.

Do you have a minimum for weddings and events?

We offer two types of wedding and event services: a la carte florals and full service floral design. A la carte is a curated selection of our most popular fine wedding and event florals. There is no minimum and you choose the color scheme. We do our very best to honor special a la carte requests, but cannot guarantee flower varieties due to seasonality, market fluctuations, and other factors. Our full service option is perfect for those who want a comprehensive design proposal, including installation work and custom arrangements. This option has a $2,500 minimum and we do travel.

How far in advance should I place the flower order for my upcoming event?

The earlier, the better! Please place your a la carte floral order at least 2 weeks in advance, which will give us time to source any specially requested blooms and coordinate our delivery schedule.
