The Petaled Garden flower farm

Welcome!  My name is Karen Sherzi and I am the farmer-florist here at The Petaled Garden.  We are a small flower farm located in the Merrimack Valley in Massachusetts where we grow a wide variety of out-of-the-ordinary specialty cut flowers.

After many years spent running our parent company, which provides garden design and maintenance services, we took an unexpected turn to flower farming. Our farm delivers fresh, seasonal flowers to the area from Boston through the Merrimack Valley in Massachusetts. We make it super easy to enjoy the abundance of our fresh, fragrant blooms, whether through our CSA share regular deliveries, individual custom arrangements and bouquets or other floral design services.  Be sure to check out all of our options!

My love of design and unique plantings led me to pursue a certificate in Professional Floral Design and take a deep dive into learning best management practices for flower farming through the Floret Flower Farm Workshop.  As I learned more about the local flower movement, I became enthralled with growing unique and heirloom specialty flowers that were unavailable elsewhere.  The unique seasonality of local flowers inspires my signature floral designs arranged in a way that enhances each flower’s natural form and beauty.

Joining me in this venture are my husband Chuck, our daughter Victoria, and of course the farm mascot, Mister Max.  Everyone digs in and gets a little dirt under their fingernails.

Our Commitment

Our mission is to provide the highest quality local flowers that captivate your senses.  Our field grown flowers are cut fresh, properly handled, and delivered to you within hours, ensuring the longest possible vase life.  They spend their time being pampered in the earth, not being processed, and then shipped long distances.

Our flowers are grown without the use of synthetic chemical treatments and are delivered without wasteful packaging or unnecessary handling, so you can be enchanted with your flowers and feel good about supporting the environment and your local community.

As flower farmers, we join the ASCFG in promoting and practicing sustainable and organic farming methods in growing our flowers.

As florists we subscribe to the Slow Flower Society’s manifesto that recognizes and respects the seasons by celebrating and designing with local flowers when they naturally bloom.  With these ideals in mind, we strive to provide the freshest possible flowers in their unique season of glory.

Because we deliver directly from the farm, our service area includes:

Massachusetts: Essex, Middlesex, and Suffolk Counties including but not limited to areas of Andover, Billerica, Boston, Cambridge, Haverhill, Lexington, Lowell, Reading, Tewksbury, Westford, Weston,  Wilmington and Winchester.
