Ottawa has some pretty amazing plant and flower shops. You can find a great list over on Ottawa River Lifestyle's blog https://ottawariverlifestyle.com/blogs/news/where-to-buy-plants-in-ottawa
I have a few more shops to add to the list.
The Ottawa Flower Market
I've been attending the flower market since last summer when they had monthly pop-up markets at Somerset Square. The market came together through 6 local flower farmers/florists who aim to promote seasonal, local and sustainable blooms. This year, they have been taking pre-orders for pick-up at various locations. This fall and winter, some farmers/florist will have offerings. If you have any questions, each one of these shops can answer your floral inquiries, they are experts.
Rosalind's Garden Blooms
Rosalind grows all of her beautiful blooms in her garden and has a rotating selection of buds based on the season. Last year, I picked up DIY dried flower wreath kits and they were a blast to put together. Rosalind also offers a variety of edible flowers and edible dried flowers!
