I walked into the Potting Bench literally 2 WEEKS before my wedding after my initial florist plans fell through and spoke with Heather about what I was looking for. I wanted simple bouquets for my bridesmaids and myself, using mostly wildflowers and in-season options to keep costs down. Although I only had a few photo examples and was mostly describing what I wanted, Heather was very perceptive and pulled together some quick bouquet samples. We talked through different options and finalized the ideas for my wedding day. I was amazed at how easily Heather was able to create what I was envisioning, all for a very reasonable cost.

Given how last minute I booked the flowers, I couldn't believe how amazing they came out on my wedding day!! Although Heather had shown me sample ideas in the shop, what she produced on my wedding day was SO much nicer than I expected- she really went above and beyond to make the bouquets BEAUTIFUL within the cost we had agreed upon. I was incredibly impressed with the arrangements, including my bouquet.

I would highly recommend the Potting Bench if you are looking for a reasonable and amazing to work with florist!!! Thank you Heather and the Potting Bench for your impressive service!

The Potting Bench came highly recommended from my best friend. She used the florist over five years ago. She recommended I use Heather as I went local to search for a florist. I can not brag enough about my flowers at my wedding. The flowers were better than I envisioned. The flowers and design were classy and elegant. Heather is AMAZING!!! She went waaay above and beyond with everything!!! My bouquet was exceptional.. Took my breath away. I live on the South Shore and my venue was in North Easton in October 2012... She is worth the drive. Their prices are the lowest by far. Simply the best!

Heather was great from day one!! She helped me pick the flowers I wanted and liked! She didn’t even get angry and aggravated when I kept calling her to change the types of flowers I wanted. It’s hard to imagine what your bouquet will look like when you just pick all different types of flowers, but when I first saw them, I cried. They were absolutely beautiful!! I LOVED my bouquet as well as my girls’ bouquet. The pricing was very reasonable compared to other local florists. There was a mix up the day of the wedding with the guys’ boutonnieres because they weren’t labeled. My family didn’t want to stress me out the day of the wedding so they didn’t come see me about the problem; however, there was nothing I could do after the fact, so it wasn’t a big deal. I actually didn’t notice until I was looking at pictures a few days later. All in all, the flowers were awesome!

I used The Potting Bench in Braintree, Ma. They were fantastic! My father had gotten laid off right before our wedding and Karen cut my price and did everything she could to make sure the flowers were affordable. They came in way under any other florists' prices by almost half the cost.

Not only did they set up the center pieces they also set up my entire reception hall for me and added special touches to it that I didn't even ask for. Everyone raved about my flowers and how nice and professional Karen and her staff were.

I went in to the shop what seemed like almost every other week to make sure everything was on track and they were so great about it all. Now one of my best friends is getting married that was at the wedding and the first thing she said was I am calling The Potting Bench right away.

I went to this florist because they were highly recommended from my matron of honor. I founded my dream flowers on the internet and printed the color pictures out and brought them with me to the florist. They priced out everything I needed and the total was a STEAL!

My mom put a deposit down and we went on our merry way. Since I lived out of state from the state I was getting married in I always liked to check in with my vendors every time I came into town.

About 2 months before my wedding I went with my mom to put more money down on our bill and they LOST my contract! LOST IT! 2 months before my wedding. I then had to go back to my home out of state and make a color copy of the sheet I originally printed out and send it to the florist to get back on their list for my wedding day!

When I came back to town I refiled my contract and put more money down and was guaranteed what I wanted would be available and that everything would be exactly how I wanted it. She guaranteed a time for my flowers to be picked up and wrote it across my contract and I left.

The day of my wedding I gave the contract with the time on it to my father to pick the flowers up. The time said NOON pick-up....my father arrived at the florist at 11:55 and they did not have my order made. Meanwhile I'm sitting in my mom's house while my make-up artist is working with me and my father walks in around 1:15.....my limo was there...my photographer was there.....and I keep thinking where is my dad.....keep in mind...my mom lives 1/4 mile from the florist! NO EXCUSE.

They did not make my flower order until after my father arrived!

FYI...they offered NO refunds...no future discounts...nothing!

I wouldn't trust them with your dream vision....

The worst thing was...they made all the flowers in the WRONG COLOR!
