Fresh flowers are available daily here at The French Potager. Not only can you purchase them by the stem, WE DELIVER too! We specialize in everything from weddings and events to sympathy arrangements for funerals. Daily delivery all along the Coast is available, and we are even happy to come to your home and help fulfill your floral needs.

We pride ourselves in quality, uniqueness, and beauty. Our arrangements reflect our passion and love for flowers, offering a variety of unique and interesting blooms. Book us for an event or wedding HERE or ORDER ONLINE for deliveries and pickups. Because we pride ourselves in original designs that feature in-season blooms and local flowers, you won’t find your standard “same-ol, same-ol” arrangements. We approach floral design from an artistic perspective, so our customers will receive a one-of-a-kind bouquet, not a photo that has been posted on a site for ten years. We use unique containers from our store to remove the “unwanted vases piling up in the cabinet” scenario. We want you to be happy, so if you have a direction you would like us to go in, please feel free to call and our designers will assist you with achieving your vision.

When I asked -who’s the best florist in town?  -several shops were recommended…. He chose you! My honey is so pleased that the most incredible arrangement anyone had ever seen were delivered for my birthday! Comments: “I’ve been inspired to buy flowers again”,  “it’s art”, “I’ve never seen anything so beautiful” – Thank you for making my birthday so incredibly special delivering the perfect arrangement to say “I love you!”.

The ladies here were so friendly and whipped me up the most beautiful last minute floral arrangement for Mother’s Day while I waited. Loved browsing the unique decor and antiques.

-Mandy Fennell Levens

Would highly recommend The French Potager!!!
They delivered my flower arrangement even through a Tropical Storm! They are one of a kind just like their arrangements!

-Jane Munoz

My mom & I love The French Potager! Martha always has a lovely array of treasures in her delightful shop. In fact, we found a 19th Century oil painting of Cockington Village, England, a place very special to the both of us. My brother and I gifted the painting to my mom for Christmas last year. And, I must strenuously disagree with the reviewer that said the the prices are too high! Nothing could be further from the truth!!!

-Denise Hines

She always nails my floral pieces. They are always refershingly beautiful and unique like only she can make them. My flower lady for life. <3

Martha Whitney’s work was the highlight of my wedding!  From the incredible tropical arrangements to my oversize bouquet to all of the wedding coordination and design:  She did it all!  Do not get married without this woman in your corner!
