“Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” -John Wooden
These are certainly adverse times. We have been through a lot during our 88 years of business at Bayport Flower Houses, but this is certainly a new challenge unlike we’ve ever seen. Like all challenges that we have met over the many generations here at Bayport Flower Houses, we will certainly learn from this and grow smarter and stronger. Our family has been working hard to keep the beautiful greenhouse crops happy and healthy during this shutdown. Planting summer annuals certainly gives one hope for a beautiful future!
We do have some exciting news! While the Bayport Flower Houses gates remain closed to protect both our staff and our community, we are happy to report that we got the OK from New York State, and our plants, flowers, soils, plant food and mulches will now available through our delivery service and front gate pick up (at scheduled times).

Maybe we are partial, but nothing uplifts the soul like a beautiful pot of tulips or a colorful bouquet of fresh cut flowers. Well, maybe digging in the garden too!
