frequently asked questions

 
 

 Are you different than a florist shop?

We are a cut flower farm and have a design studio. We are unique in that we primarily source from our own farm or other local farms. All our designs are seasonally inspired and one of a kind. We love adding small, unexpected accents like seasonal berries, autumn foliage, foraged pieces, and many other fun design elements.

Can I come by the farm to see the flowers?

Our farm is located at our home, and we love to accommodate visitors. However, at this time we are not due to remodeling and the busy nature of our farm and business. We are always on the go and have a very limited staff. You can find our flowers at Odd Duck Coffee and our weekly farm stand. Please email blair@gilbertcreekgardens.com to schedule a tour.

What floral services do you offer?

We offer deliveries, floral subscriptions, special event florals and seasonal products. You can email blair@gilbertcreekgardens.com for inquires.

What flowers can I expect in my bouquet/arrangement deliveries?

You can expect a fresh selection of seasonal blooms and greenery in your bouquets/deliveries. 

How are the flowers sold on the bloom bar?

Seasonal blooms and greenery are sold per stem ranging from $1 - $6. 

Do you put flower food in your water?

Not generally, our flowers don’t NEED it! We suggest changing the water every two days and trimming the stems when you do cutting them at an angle.  

I’m nervous about using seasonal flowers - what if the flowers don’t grow and then I have no flowers for my wedding day?

No need to worry! We love supporting our local flower farmer friends and occasionally source flowers from across the US if something specific is not available on our farm. In the event that we need to buy flowers elsewhere, there will be no additional costs or stress passed along to you. 

What if I want to include flowers on my wedding day or special event that you don't grow on the farm?

While we strive to grow an impressive array of specialty flowers, some varieties are not suited to our climate. In that case, we have the ability to order beautiful blooms from other farms in Texas and from across the country. For example, even though we don't grow many garden roses on our own farm, we love supporting farmer friends and sourcing these gorgeous blooms from them. Our goal is to design the wedding flowers of your dreams! 

What if I want to design my own wedding flowers  - can I just buy bulk buckets from the farm?

YES! If you are a DIY bride and want to arrange your own wedding flowers or special event, bulk buckets are available. Prices vary seasonally email blair@gilbertcreekgardens.com for more information.

What is the difference between a la carte and full service wedding?

If you are looking for bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, etc. and don't desire a large amount of customization, a la carte is the perfect way to go. Our pricing is transparent and it makes the planning process virtually stress free. Set up at the venue is not typically included. However if you're looking for a custom floral design plan that is full of unique and distinctive details, our full service option is the way to go. This usually includes installations such as arches, arbors and long, tablescapes or designs with on-site set up.
