There is a Jerry…. Jerry & Marlene Patton opened Flowers by Jerry
in 1968 one block from the Mayo Clinic. Ten years later, they moved to the
current store on the corner of 3rd Ave & 4th St SE. In 1995, Jerry’s
son and daughter-in-law, Kevin & Karry Patton, took over the business
and two years later added another location. Formerly Whitings Flowers and
Greenhouse, the new location on the corner of 10th St & historic Silver
Lake Drive NE added not only a greenhouse, but a new design facility.
Because of our new design facility at our North Store and our professional
care and handling, our flowers are always as fresh as possible. We receive farm direct and fresh flower shipments five days a week and our high volume insures a constant rotation. Our care & handling techniques like under-water cutting, correct preservative usage and our clean, temperature controlled environment insure your flowers will be fresh, fragrant and full of life. Our facility and volume also help us keep our prices competitive. We are
able to negotiate better pricing and pass the savings on to our customers.
Our committed staff offer years of experience in all areas of the floral industry. Kevin & Karry are committed to providing an awesome work environment for their staff and in turn, the employees are committed to providing the same experience for their customers. Most of our employees have been here for years- they're good at what they do and love it.
