The Greenhouse Dried Florals

About Us

The Greenhouse at Good Neighbor is a Baltimore based Plant and Floral Design Studio opened August of 2020. We bring together a knowledgeable team and diverse inventory to best serve our customers, offering botanical inspiration and helping to transform visions into beautiful realities.

 

We cultivate healthy plants, for sale in Good Neighbor and in our lean to Greenhouse. We aim to share the benefits of the bond between people and plants and contribute to Baltimore's thriving gardening community. We offer a full range of easy to care for plants as well as some more unique, and hard to find collector plants.

 

In the studio, you'll find dry flowers and foliage ranging from rare blooms to pods. We happily design unique creations with customer direction or sell our supply by the stem for those that wish to make it all on their own.

 

During the flowering season, the Greenhouse offers a wonderful variety of fresh cut flowers from our garden. Bouquets are made fresh by request in the studio and also available as pre-made "grab-and-go bouquets" every day in Good Neighbor. 

 

Stop by to browse our unique selection and experience our serene atmosphere for yourself. We can’t wait to see you!

"Of course after eating through outdoor seating at Good Neighbor, my group walked up the hill to visit the Greenhouse. I think I was just speechless the whole time trying to absorb everything in."
