Flower Grower and Floral Designer serving Lehigh Valley, Pa.
Hello! My name is Marly and welcome to Fenimore & Rutland!
Fenimore & Rutland is named after the side streets where I lived in Brooklyn, NY. I'm paying homage to these tree-lined streets and well-tended 'stoop' gardens I walked past daily. This neighborhood is now known as Lefferts-Prospect Gardens. I now in live in Allentown, Pa.
I grow flowers in thanks to my Creator; I see His hands in creation and my heart is grateful. I feel a need to share this beauty with you. I enjoy creating floral arrangements and designing flowers for weddings and events.
WHERE I GROW FLOWERS
If you've never heard of a micro-floral farm, we are exactly that. Growing beautiful blooms and greenery on less than 2400 sq ft. in the East side of Allentown, Pa requires lessons in patience, time management, and spacing!
Growing flowers in an urban setting is very hard work, but the Lehigh Valley community is supportive, and it's worth the amazing rewards.
Due to the small growing area, I'm limited with what I can grow. However, Northeast Pennsylvania has amazing flower farmers to source what is needed for your special occasion.
