Butternut Gardens is the only flower farm in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Evelyn Lee creates her seasonally fresh signature garden-inspired designs with materials cut specifically for your arrangements and bouquets.
"One of the joys of gardening and flower farming," says Evelyn, "is following the many changes that occur throughout the growing season and seeing what is going to come next. Every day offers new treasures."
Butternut Gardens offers full service floral design for weddings as well as a bulk flower purchase option for DIY wedding couples who wish to create their own designs, and a "Something In Between" option for couples who want to make their centerpieces themselves with Butternut Gardens flowers, in conjunction with professionally-designed bouquets. Wedding couples who choose to work with Butternut Gardens share the excitement of changing seasons and infuse their wedding day with flowers which are not only gorgeous but are "uniquely theirs."
Weekly, biweekly or monthly Butternut Gardens flower subscriptions, delivered right to doorsteps, enables local residents to enjoy the subtle surprises of successive garden seasons. Every delivery brings something new. Even when Phlox blooms abundantly, there is no telling if Evelyn will send along a monochromatic explosion of all lavender, all white, or all pink blooms, or if she will put together "Phlox ecstasy" with purple, light pink, white, deep pink, and pink and white swirled phlox all bunched together, perhaps even with some special accent flower. Ah, charm.
Butternut Gardens offers floral design and horticultural workshops for DIY wedding couples, gardeners and others in the hopes of bringing the long lost glory of cutting gardens back home.
