It’s a fact that old fashioned brick and mortar flower shops have been going out of business by the hundreds for the past decade.
Approximately 80% of flowers you see in grocery stores, and retail floral shops in the U.S. today are imported from overseas— 80%!!! This causes local flower farmers and floral businesses to struggle.
At Sweet T Flowers, we are trying to “make a difference” in the flower industry and are committed to purchasing flowers grown only in the U.S.
Season permitted, we choose to buy our flowers from as many local Carolina farms that we possibly can. When the change in the seasons do not allow for harvesting, we then look to some amazing farms in the great state of CA to fill in until weather permits here in the South.
By choosing to sell what is in season ONLY, we are giving you the consumer the very best product that the farmer has available, period.

Words We Live By
Always American Grown / Always Beautiful
Waste Not, Want Not
Remember this old saying your Granny used to say? Well there’s a lot of truth in that ole saying when it pertains to the flower industry. By selling what is available and gloriously blooming at the time of harvesting, waste is kept to a bare minimum not only on the farm, but in the flower shop as well. And you, Honey Darlin, get the prettiest flowers around.
It’s A Win-Win Situation
Focusing on Fresh is good for our farmers, and customers!
Lastly, don’t you just LOVE the feeling of visiting an actual brick and mortar flower shop? A shop with real designers who absolutely adore what they do and take pride in their work? The same designers who made your first prom corsage, your wedding flowers, your baby’s first flowers and so on….it doesn’t get much better than that.
Indulge yourself with locally grown elegance! The sweet smell of gardenia, the brightly colored roses blooming like crazy, snapdragons gone all snappy…seriously happy stuff for sure.
Science Doesn’t Lie – Neither Does Your Momma
Science (and your Momma) has proven flowers make people happy 🙂 Who can argue with that?
