new & upcoming


local and all-american flowers

pot & box is committed to grow and source the freshest seasonal and local flowers--from our own cutting gardens or from local flower farmers friends, and ALWAYS from american farms. two things we love are to grow particular flowers especially for our clients and know the names of the farmers who grow flowers. then, our blooms more than just a pretty face. 

we are also foam-free, opting for hardware choices that are environmentally- and socially- friendly. 

 

zero waste goal

even in our natural industry of floral design, packaging and other materials all-too-easily end up in landfills. we're focusing our sustainability efforts on the lofty goal of becoming zero waste. as we strive to reduce, we think you'll appreciate doing business with us even more.

about


pot & box founder lisa waud has been enthusiastically steering the horticultural goings-on of pot & box since founding the business nine years ago. she’s been arranging flowers in the soil & in the vase for over 15 years—from the volcanic slopes of hawaii, the clay garden beds of the pacific northwest, & across the great [lakes] state of michigan.

lisa lives in detroit, and when she’s not playing with flowers, you can find her scheming up field trips with her giant dog zero or planning explorations in other inspirational cities.

 

in lisa’s words: i love to work with flowers blooming now and nearby, celebrating the richest hues, most fragrant blooms, the abundance of seasonality. i thrive on the uncommon and unexpected, applauding a determined weed growing out of a brick wall, the unusual variegation pattern on a peony’s petal, a tattooed bride’s arms cradling a delicate bouquet. i excel when tasked with realizing the visions of my clients, arranging stems to suit the celebration, bringing event decor ideas to life,  striving for the breathtaking gasp of elation.

lisa is also the creator of flower house

color coding and spreadsheets make abbey happy, and she dominates our workflow organization. her broad experience in business administration means she wears a lot of hats here at p&b. from web maintenance to book-keeping, customer relations, and everything in between, abbey keeps things running smoothly so we can spend our days playing with flowers rather than spreadsheets.
