Our Commitment

We are committed to working towards responsible floristry. This means that we are consciously trying making positive choices about the impact our business has on our environment, community and local economy. Here are a few ways we are working towards our goals:

Buying Locally
Rosedale and the Fraser Valley is a hub for world class flower growers. We choose to support local farmers and minimize our footprint by purchasing and using locally grown flowers and products.

Homegrown
Whenever possible we grow flowers, fillers and greens on our farm in Rosedale, BC. We avoid the use of pesticides and use responsible growing practices.

Invasive Plant Council of BC

When planting cutting flowers, foliage and potted plants for distribution we follow the recommendations from Invasive Plant Council of BC's, “Grow Me Instead” program as often as possible. This means that we are growing items that natural thrive in our gardens and reduce the impact on native species in our environment.

Foraging
We forage for sustainable floral items in nature, on roadsides and in your yard...just kidding about your yard! We use responsible gathering protocols and never use rare or endangered species.

Recycling and Composting
We compost all of our green waste and use proper recycling practices for plastics and cardboard.

Vase and Container Exchange
You can bring us a vase or container and we fill it or exchange it for one of similar value. This way you can purchase fresh flowers regularly without becoming overrun with vases!

Our History

Black and white image of ferns

Over 60 years ago the company was started by the original Mary Clark. The business has had the privilege of creating wedding flowers and 50th Anniversary flowers for the same customers.

Mary Heibert, a vivacious floral designer, was the second owner of the company. She was, “Best in the Blooming Business” for many years. In 2002, Wendy and Katherine Hinkley purchased the company and Mary Hiebert was able to retire.

From 2002 until 2015 the design team won awards for the, “Best Flower Shop in Chilliwack” and the store was located in the Southgate Shopping Center on Yale Road. It was during this time Wendy, a certified designer was also an instructor for the Floral Design Program at the University of the Fraser Valley.

In December of 2015, Wendy decided it was time to start spending more time with her grandchildren. She handed the daily operations of the company along to her youngest daughter Adele and Adele's sister-in-law Jen. The store was moved to it's current location in Rosedale, British Columbia.

Today the business has become rooted in a holistic approach to floristry. We are the gardeners and know many of the farmers who grow our product. Our design style is grounded in traditional techniques while we draw inspiration from farm life and nature's woodland beauty.
