fresh picks

The latest from Dutch Bloemen Winkel.

Always left wondering what to bring for a host/hostess gift during the holiday season?  Around here we love to start Amaryllis and Paper White bulbs in November in cute decorative pots to get ourselves ready for such a social season!  Who misses another bottle of wine or fruit cake when you can present your host/hostess with a gorgeous, fragrant live plant!

They are just the easiest to grow and add a little bit of life to a room, just as the winter is taking hold.  We sell pre-potted and loose bulbs (paper whites only come loose, but you can always put a special order in with us and we could have something ready for you within a working day).   All bulbs come with growing instructions.

The shop has three gorgeous varieties of Amaryllis bulbs to choose from this year, but hurry in, so you can get them growing in time for your favorite holiday parties!

Dearest Customers-

Our shop will be closed next week after Easter from April 22-26. We are a small owner run business and need to take breaks every now and then. We will re-open on Tuesday, April 29 and will resume our regular business hours of Tues-Fri 10am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm.

We have fallen into the annual routine of always closing about the same times each year. Here are the dates we are closed for 2014. 1. The week following Valentine’s Day: 2/15-2/22 2. The third week in April: 4/22-4/26 3. The first week of November: 11/4-11/8 4. The week between Christmas and the New Year: 12/26-1/3

Thanks for understanding we’re a small business and that we need a little time off each year

A little trivia this week:

Calla lilies symbolize what in the language of flowers? Bring your answer into the shop and get a great deal on calla lilies! ONLY $4/per stem.

The calla lilies are a beautiful lavender color, they are long lasting and this is a great value! We’ve got lots, but this will last as long as our supplies do : )

Conway Sun Ad 6-4

Our french bulldog and devoted shop mascot, Tulip, loves to greet our customers! Come by for a visit and grab a beautiful jar of flowers.

Just a heads up that our shop will be closed the week of Fourth of July 2013. We will resume our normal hours on July 9th!
