the cutting garden + flora grubb

by Grace Bonney

when it comes to west coast garden style, i can think of few places i admire more than flora grubb. the first time i visited this incredible san francisco nursery/shop was with heidi and i think i would have stayed all day had their not been the promise of a delicious lunch on the horizon. so i was thrilled to hear from susie nadler at flora grub about her new business venture ‘the cutting garden‘, a cut flower studio at flora grubb gardens.

susie’s husband is flora’s business partner and after talking and working with flora, they all decided that fresh flowers would be a great way to expand the services offered at flora grubb. the cutting garden designs a wide range of beautiful arrangements (made from seasonal, california-grown materials) or your home, special events, or offices, and also runs a beautiful floral blog on the flora grubb site. one of susie’s goals is to help people become comfortable with cutting from their own gardens and arranging stems themselves, so susie will be helping customers with tips and tools of the trade for keeping the look of cut flowers going in your home. i’m so excited to check out the cutting garden in person, but until then i’ll be staring at these arrangements on a regular basis. if you’re in the area, drop by flora grubb to check out the new cutting garden, or visit them on the web right here. looking for valentine’s day gifts? flora grubb has a great online v-day selection right here.
