The Frugal Flower began as a humble roadside stand selling fresh flowers in the town of Sudbury, Massachusetts in 1988. Our major growth began when we developed a relationship importing fresh orchids from Bangkok later that year. The magnificent exotic orchids that highlight our arrangements bring a fresh, exotic flavor that always thrills our customers. We now import thousands of orchids every year, with fresh deliveries to our facilities daily, and specialized packaging processes to ensure that the freshness and beauty of these flowers is preserved through delivery to your home. In addition to supporting our own customers, we fulfill the flower offerings of many major retailers and sellers throughout the country.
In 2001, The Frugal Flower expanded our worldwide sourcing and delivery business with the purchase of a direct-ship plant company. We now offer you many options of farm fresh flowers that we personally import from the leading flower capitals of the world, bringing you a unique assortment of flowers, plants, and special arrangements. Our extraordinary assortment of flowers, various plants, and fruit and gourmet gift baskets at all price ranges are guaranteed to provide you with the perfect gift to express your sentiments.
Two lifelong friends, Craig Wambolt and Mike Devlin founded The Frugal Flower, in 1988. Craig and Mike continue to be involved every day, with Craig overseeing all operations, and Mike keeping his watchful eye over all arrangements, ensuring that all of the flowers, plants, and other offerings exceed our customers' expectations. They are supported by a staff of trained floral design artists, customer service representatives, and professional packers, with many lifetimes worth of experience between them.
