I gotta hand it to Martha--my spouse-to-be and I walked into the shop on a Friday with what might be considered a fairly unreasonable request: could she prepare a boutonniere and a bridal bouquet for our wedding on, uh, the following Monday? Either this woman was *delighted* to fulfill this last-minute request and leave the flowers in the care of a neighbor on a day when she normally would not be open, or she's just a damn good actor. We'd just met her moments before, and when she heard we were getting married she grabbed our hands and squealed for joy. I *loved* my bouquet--it was a gorgeous bunch of pink peonies, small white blossoms, and roses the color of the silk that bound the stems. I actually dried and kept them, because they are that special to me. Thanks Martha, you're a peach among women! More...

Martha’s is a delightful little shop with the world’s nicest employees. Stop in to buy a beautiful gift for someone you love!

Martha will give you the most amazing flowers ever! She COMPLETELY knocked all my dreams out of the park. I wanted sunflowers in March, and she was able to call her guy in NEW ZELAND (?!?) to get them flown in. She did an amazingly beautiful sunflower backdrop for our ceremony, all the centerpieces and votives, all bridal bouquets, a head table runner, and various other decorations. All of them were incredible and there is nobody else I would have trusted to bring my picky flower dreams come to life. If you hire Martha, you'll know that the whole day will be so easy for you. She and her team will come set up, and tear down, and you can rent a whole array of other decorations from her shop as well. She is the nicest, most supportive person I have ever worked with!

Martha was so friendly and perfectly captured our winter wedding vision - she was the only florist we met with that creatively suggested unique ideas that we hadn't considered. She met with us several times throughout the planning process, and was so flexible in creating samples for us before our wedding. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience! More...

Martha created one of the most beautiful arrangements for my 91 year old Dad's partner's memorial service that I have ever seen. Martha, it was the loveliest there - and had the center of attention spot. My Dad and I were so proud. It was wonderful working with you. From our hearts to your heart, we thank you.

Place is tops on the list. Just the friendliest people and superb service. Walked in with a request and they blew me away - my wife loved the arrangement. Martha and team, thank you! And again, congrats on the 20 yr anniversary! More...

Martha and her team helped create the wedding of my dreams. I live in San Francisco and didn't have the time to visit local florists; I had to fully trust that Martha would deliver and she exceeded every expectation.All of the planning was done over two phone calls -- Martha was warm and made me feel like she was genuinely excited to be a part of my wedding day. The only instructions I gave Martha were, "I love peonies. I don't want much color besides white, pale pinks, pale blush. I want eucalyptus in the greens." She asked for pictures of my and my bridesmaid dresses and ran with it. She remembered every detail, including creating a replica of a white dendrobium orchid flower crown just like the one my mom had at her wedding. I didn't have to worry about a thing!Martha and her team have great vision. Couldn't recommend them more! More...

Martha is a most extraordinary woman who is talented and full of heart, and I knew she was the florist I wanted for our daughter’s wedding the moment I walked into her shop and felt the magic all around me. There was this incredible energy with lovely floral and herbal scents in the air, and it literally took my breath away. I did not have to look any further. Throughout the year Martha was always available to talk or to meet in person, and if my daughter flew in for a weekend she made time in her schedule to meet with us. She has such a beautiful design sense and just as important, a warm and lovely personality which goes a long way with the stress of planning a wedding. Our daughter’s wedding was last weekend and could not have been more gorgeous, and I attribute that in large part to Martha’s classy and elegant designs. Our centerpieces had no flowers, but were made of greens, herbs, and berries and they were simply breathtaking. Martha captured our vision perfectly. We had dozens of guests comment on how beautiful the room looked. We love you Martha, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you truly made our daughter’s wedding very special. More...

Very helpful, polite and got the job done for us as they sent a fresh cut arrangement to my Brothers 35 anniversary celebration of his Dental Practice.

Martha is fantastic! Her creativity is amazing and her prices are fair. The flowers she uses are a lovely quality and always fresh. You can rely on her for a quick arrangement to take home that day to larger events. I love Marth's Gardens and highly recommend anyone to visit her shop of Selby and Snelling. More...

I called to request calla lilies for a funeral arrangement (special meaning) and she was able to find the most beautiful lillies and arranged them so artfully. The bouquet was next to the coffin and were greatly admired. Thank you! More...

Martha did my daughters grooms dinner and wedding flowers, they were so beautiful and beyond our expectations. Brian & Mayann (sp?) were awesome to work with at the venue. They were fun and over accommodating for all the day of final touches. Thank you Martha! More...

Martha is my favorite St. Paul floral vendor for event ordering. She is lovely and her unique arrangements are whimsical and always a fun point of interest at the table. My husband had Martha create a special arrangement for me when we found out we were expecting our first. If you are in the area, pop in and check out her beautiful shop and friendly staff. Usually you can catch a peak at beautiful projects in progress! More...

Where to begin with Martha's Gardens. Martha makes the experience of giving and receiving flowers a pure joy. Her enthusiasm and heart are the essences of flower giving. She has done all our family's weddings, funerals, and celebrations. I can always tell a 'Martha' arrangement, there is something dazzling and creative, unexpected and yet perfect in each one. She has a style all her own, but she listens to what you want and somehow 'reads' your hopes for the final product. I also love that she is a small shop, a female owner that has not been swallowed up by larger corporate-think. Supporting a family for many years and growing from behind the house garage business to a thriving local landmark, Martha is an inspiration.  Don't hesitate to visit for a single candle or your life's next big event.

The flowers at my wedding were absolutely BEAUTIFUL - Martha and team took my vision and their artistic ability and created masterpieces. I have had so many comments on the creative beauty behind our bouquets and centerpieces. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting your heart and soul into my wedding. XO More...

When Martha and I had met I was working for her on a home project. When she told me she owned a floral shop this was a no brainer she would do our wedding floral. Martha and I met and we went over my vision. With many Pinterest photos of course. When my bouquets were delivered to my hotel suite I was blown away! I almost started crying over the beauty of them. Also my vision was given to me by the masterminds at the floral shop. Martha and her team went above and beyond to add to our perfect day with all of the attendants flowers, centerpieces and all of the candles. It was truly perfect! I can't say how many times our guests asked who we went through for floral and how stunning it all was. Martha will have our business for many events to come as this shop is full of artists! Everyone is always in a great mood and the vibe inside the shop is electrifying. Thank you so much Martha and team!!!!! More...

Martha and her team did a miraculous job for our wedding. The bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets were so gorgeous. Martha is so incredibly kind and caring and makes you feel like family from the moment you meet her. We wanted simple center pieces and she made them so special. She was even able to incorporate paper flowers I had made out of book pages in order to incorporate the library theme. I highly recommend! More...

We loved working with Martha and her team for our April 2017 wedding! Upon our initial meeting, we knew Martha understood what we were looking floor, and she executed flawlessly! Our wedding looked beautiful, from the floral arrangements, to the bouquets, to the vintage books and other decor Martha provided. She was such a pleasure to work with, and I can't wait to visit her shop for my future floral needs! More...

I experienced the most amazing service at Martha's Gardens. Brian helped me figure out what to put my succulents in and took the time to carefully and beautifully pot multiple plants in unique plant pots. I am thankful for his work and would definitely recommend Martha's Gardens. More...

The only place I go for my flower arrangements. Staff is awesome and shop is super cute. I always end up finding special and unique items. Arrangements are also very well priced and there are a lot of vase options. They will work within in your budget. More...

Martha and her team once again created magic in my wife's Mother's Day floral arrangement. I've used Martha's Gardens for all of my holidays and special occasions that have called for flowers for the past seven years and I couldn't be more impressed. Creative, unique and highest quality...I'd highly recommend Martha's Gardens. Amazing! More...

Martha took the beauty of our wedding vision to a new level. I could tell right from the first time I met her that this was a creative process for her and I put the floral and venue décor completely in her hands. She nailed it! My husband and I were in love with what she did with our event space. I had so many compliments on my bouquet and flowers (she found peonies for a December wedding!). Because she took care of all the décor, it made that portion of our day stress free. I would highly recommend her for a full service florist and décor option. Her prices are worth it. She and her team are amazing. More...

Martha took the beauty of our wedding vision to a new level. I could tell right from the first time I met her that this was a creative process for her and I put the floral and venue décor completely in her hands. I had very little idea of what I was going to see on our wedding day (we talked winter wedding with lots of candlelight and that was about as far as we went) but she nailed it! My husband and I were in love with what she did with our event space. I had so many compliments on my bouquet and flowers (she found peonies for a December wedding!). As an event planner professionally, it would normally have made me very nervous to have such little information on exactly what we would be getting on our wedding day but I just trusted Martha. Because she took care of all the décor, it made that portion of our day stress free. I would highly recommend her for a full service florist and décor option. Her prices are worth it. She and her team are amazing. More...

If you're looking for something other than flowers in a wicker basket or wicker looking something, go to Martha's, tell her about your loved one, and she'll design something to fit that person to a t.

Calm and comfortable candlelight shopping. I love love my fall arrangement.

STUNNING arrangements!!! From the first day I met Martha I knew that she would be able to produce stunning arrangements, which she did with her own artistic flavor. In addition, she is an exceptional person, and was reasonably priced. A true pleasure to work with! We will be asking her to do our next wedding as well.

Accidentally found myself wandering into this beautiful and intriguing florist, what a lovely experience I had! I bought some protia and Martha added some berries and branches so eventually it would be a dry arrangement!! Just beautiful, I'm definately going back !! I encourage you all to go to this slice of heaven! Staff where just fabulous!!! More...



26 September 2016

Martha's was great to meet and coordinate with. She is so very accommodating and nice. While my bouquet didn't turn out exactly how I had imagined it, it was still beautiful. I also did not get my flowers or the bridesmaids flowers in time for the photos, so if that is something you want, be sure to communicate clearly. More...

I cannot say enough about how amazingly kind, talented and creative Martha and her crew are!!! I got married on 8/6/16 and people are still talking about how lovely my flowers were. I was kind of a scatter brained bride. After meeting with Martha i was incredibly relieved. I had the utmost faith that she would properly execute the vision that i didn't even know i had. She created the perfect rustic-chic look. The bouquets and arrangements truly created a magical atmosphere in the barn! The whole team really went above and beyond to make everything about that day so beautiful. My new husband and I are endlessly grateful. Our photos turned out perfectly because of the floral magic of Martha's Gardens. Hopefully the hubs will take it upon himself to get a customized Martha bouquet for every single anniversary so I can relive the joy that her creative spirit brought to our big day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! More...



12 July 2016

Oh my gosh. Martha is seriously PERFECTION. From the second I met her I knew she would be the perfect florist for us (we met with a couple more and they didn't even compare). She understood my vision and the flowers were better than I could imagine. Ah just amazing! I can be somewhat of a perfectionist and Martha delivered!! She was so great to work with and was such a positive light in our wedding planning process. We love Martha!! :) More...

Martha's Gardens did a beautiful job on a bouquet I ordered for my grandmother's 95th birthday. I gave them discretion over picking the best seasonal fliers and they did not disappoint. My family has been raving about how gorgeous it was, and it was a perfect gift for my grandma. More...

Exceptional all the way around!!

Since we were not the purchaser, we cannot comment on value.... ($ cost/benefit/comparison) except that they were highly valued by us as the recipients. The arrangement was amazing, unusual, and beautiful - not your typical memorial flower arrangement, but a stone urn with amazing colors and textures and beauty! It was my favorite arrangement at the funeral. Thank you so much. More...

Love! Met Martha years ago at Sweat Shop! Got most beautiful wreath last year and just today was thinking of ordering new this weekend.

Martha completely captured the brides vision and yet honored her mother's preferences with low centerpieces on long dining tables. When a last-minute change was requested, Martha and her team saved the day quietly, quickly and with a smile. Her work made this large, beautiful outdoor wedding gorgeous and elegant. More...

Ordered flowers for my mother - Gorgeous - Just Gorgeous bouquet - loved by both my mother and father. My daughter went to a wedding shortly thereafter and the flowers were also provided by Martha's Garden and she said they were beautiful, and she intends to use Martha for her wedding in July 2017.

I can't thank Martha enough for the most beautiful wedding flowers and decor in the world! She absolutely captured my vision and made it that much better! I received so many compliments and it certainly made the day! She (and her team!) is the most pleasant person to work with, very understanding and flexible. I couldn't have been happier! More...

Always thoughtful, beautiful and personal bouquets. Love this place!

I love going to Martha's Garden. If I need to pick up a quick bouquet or order flowers for someone I always get something beautiful. She did the floral arrangements for my father-un-laws 80th birthday. They were gorgeous and on my budget. All of the elderly ladies at the party were fighting over who got to bring the flowers home.

1 June 2015

Working with Martha made my planning experience a lot more calming. Coming from another country and lot knowing all the flowers names could have been frustrating or uncomfortable if I didn't have Martha to explains and show clear examples of all the flowers we would work with. It was beautiful!

After receiving two bouquets from Martha's Gardens, I had check out the shop to see what it was all about.  I love flowers and had never received such creative a and lovely designs before.  What a gem of a place.  The store carries lots of whimsy and eclectic items for the home and to wear.  If you need something original for yourself or for a gift, you must look here.  While I was there, Martha came out to say, "hello" and invited me to her work area and showed me what she was working on for  a wedding a few days later.   She was so excited about what she was doing and was very impressed.  She clearly is very passionate about her work does what she loves  This is my go to shop now for all my floral and fun gift needs.

THE Martha is undoubtedly the friendliest person I know. She exudes positive energy. Her smile is infectious. Sometimes when she hits her stride on a project she actually starts to glow! Visit the store to see for yourself. More...

Darling Martha was the most amazing vendor we worked with. Not only was her talent, creativity and floral knowledge/design utterly fabulous, she made us feel so special.

Her attention to detail along with her wonderful team that worked with her were exceptional and always available via email, phone or in person. We love her shop too.

This review can not tell you enough how over the moon & breathtakingly beautiful our flowers were. Our guests are still talking about the floral arrangements. Our recommendation to you is "run and hire Martha immediately" if she has your date available. The price was so fair.

Bride's Perspective: Martha did a beautiful job on my wedding flowers!  She was a joy to work with and was always so warm and friendly through the entire process.  I showed her floral inspirations from Pinterest and provided swatches from the dresses and suits.  Martha created gorgeous bouquets and arrangements using the wedding color palate.  She also has a variety of vases and candle holders to use for your wedding.  Lastly, Martha made sure to work within my budget and found creative ways so that I could still have everything for my dream wedding.

This seems like a place you discover, and it's a great way to begin the day. I usually get my flowers from Trader Joe's for $6, and am totally satisfied. I told Martha that I like that type. She told me she likes to not be like the store, but can put anything together. I've actually never seen such an airy shop. Talk about truth in advertising. I would definitely seek out special occasion arrangements from here. I ended up buying the coolest squared tapered candles for Easter in pink and hot pink. I could see these for all the holidays. There's a really cool pearl type pen for sale that I have my eye on too. More...

Martha is a genius! She listened to my vision and created a romantic and classic feel on my wedding day. Martha not only made my vision and ideas come alive; she blew me and everyone else away! Her work is breathtakingly stunning and done to perfection. I would hire her for any event in a heartbeat! I love you Martha! More...



12 August 2013

To begin with, Martha is the kindest woman I may have ever met! Her personality from the moment you meet her makes you trust that your wedding is in good hands! Martha was extremely accommodating throughout the entire process. Our wedding was a two-day affair that was loaded with beauty from all the details in the flowers as well as candles! Even more, Martha included a special throw bouquet because she wanted to do something special for us. The floral at our wedding was breathtaking, Martha captured exactly what we discussed and took our vision to a whole new level! More...

Martha and the ladies at her floral studio are the sweetest and best around. We were on a first name basis after the initial meeting. She really understood our vision of our wedding day and decor concepts. We wanted simple, organic and natural and Martha executed it to perfection. So easy to work with and she was just as excited about our wedding as we were. No detail or information was too small to discuss or ask about. Simply the best! More...

Since I was in the neighborhood, I stopped in on a recent sunny afternoon just to see what was in there.  I found a delightfully decorated shop and a calm and welcoming atmosphere.  All sorts of beautiful things on display and for sale.  And to top it all off, Martha came out of the back with a warm smile and a friendly "hello".  She's the owner and the floral designer and seems very nice.  There is a small selection of locally handmade jewelry, and I tried on a necklace that I really liked and learned that it was made by her sister, Edith Ann, who lives right in the neighborhood.  A great place to browse at "lovely" things and smell/see fresh flowers and visit with Martha.

Martha is a wonderful florist. She was willing and able to work within our budget even though it was somewhat limited. I was shocked at what flowers cost but I don't that is specific to Martha, they are expensive everywhere! I also sometimes had a tough time getting e-mail responses from her and we didn't receive our full invoice until I had written three times to get it. But aside from that, the flowers we beautiful and we enjoyed our day! More...



7 January 2010

Martha is simply amazing. She is not only a florist, but an artist...and flowers are her palate. Everyone in the studio is very creative, flexible, and wonderful to work with.



19 November 2009

I will never forget walking into our yard, where the wedding was set up, and being nearly overwhelmed at the transformation that had occurred. It was so beautiful - beyond what I could have even imagined. I had selected 2 colors to work with and had babbled on about liking this flower or that flower, but fortunately stopped talking and then handed it over completely to Martha and her team. What do I know about floral design? I just said: Make it gorgeous! Their work was exceptional. I've been to countless affairs and weddings and had never felt such a loving touch in the flowers. I know this sounds crazy, but it's as tho' the flowers had been grown just for this day. She and her team transformed a rustic, wooden swingset into a glorious backdrop for the ceremony. Draped fabric and the most gorgeous vines and flowers I'd ever seen. The table decorations were exquisite - so unusual and elegant. So many people commented on the flowers it was impossible to imagine the wedding without Martha's Gardens. Beyond all this, they are all lovely and delightful to work with. If you're not completely sure of what you want, express what you can, and then step back, and let these artisans create. Their collective 'eye' is perfection. Could not recommend them higher. And the value was excellent, excellent. More...



3 July 2009

Martha worked well within a budget and up until the last consultation, she was willing to adjust for cost and time. Did I mention that our wedding was in JANUARY? She was able to fill the entire room with flowers from local GREEN growers (go economic stimulus!) and makes it all personal with her antique silver that she incorporated everywhere, even the guest bath.

I'll never understand how she was able to take my one-syllable mumbles and create the most exquisite and refined flower story we.have.ever.seen. I recommend her to everyone who asks because she was just so NICE to work with. She will not be beat for taste and vision! I'll never do her work justice in attempting to describe it, so here:


See for yourself!



15 May 2009

I loved working with Martha. She had lots of books of her previous work which helped up pick a style that worked for us. I preferred to choose an overall color instead of specific flowers and let Martha decide what would work best for our wedding and our style. She assured me that she'd make our wedding beautiful...and she did. The bouquets and table settings were stunning and we couldn't have been happier. I'd recommend Martha to everyone. More...



26 February 2009

If you want gorgeous flowers, centerpieces, and unique touches at your wedding go to Martha! She has beautiful silver vases and antique pieces that she uses to make your flowers look like a "platinum wedding" no matter how small your budget maybe. My flowers brought tears to my eyes when I saw them for the first time and I received tons of compliments from our guests about how beautiful our centerpieces were. Martha is the best! More...



19 November 2008

Martha's floral designs are creative and unique and she will work within your budget. A little hard to get in touch over the phone as the studio has limited hours, but once you do she'll setup a meeting time and is great from there!



30 October 2008

Martha is amazing! She is a floral genius! She created a very unique look for our wedding flowers. She is worth every penny!
