At The English Garden Florist of Raleigh, flowers are more than a business; they are a way of life. As third generation florists, founders Warren English and Cydney Davis-English had the wonderful experience of literally growing up in the business—their mothers both kept playpens in the design room. More than sixty years ago, their grandmothers, Warren’s “Nanny” in Wilmington, NC, and Cydney’s “Granny B” in Roseboro, NC, opened florists when they were left as single mothers (one divorced, one widowed) with young families to rear on their own. Their parents each continued their family’s floral tradition. Warren’s mother, Sarah, owned and operated an award-winning florist in Wilmington, NC, until her retirement in the mid-1990s. After Cydney’s grandmother’s retirement, her father, Richard, opened his first florist and together with her mom, Sidney, they have been among the state’s most successful and respected shop owners for over forty years.
The English Garden is a locally owned and operated full-service florist and gift store serving the Raleigh/Durham Triangle and its surrounding communities, including Cary, Morrisville, RTP and Chapel Hill. They appreciate the opportunity to assist you with your floral and gift needs.
