I ordered a $75 vase of fresh flowers for my mother who is a patient @ Univ Tenn Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon and explained that I wanted them delivered that day if at all possible.

You definitely went above and beyond, the call of duty!

My mother was so pleased to get a nice arrangement of such bountiful variety of colorful, fresh and fragrant flowers. I called 4 local Knoxville florists and everyone explained that same day delivery is not available and the earliest they could deliver to UT was later the next day.

I called the Flower Pot and the order taker was so nice and accommodating and willing to have the driver make another trip to UT to ensure my mom got her flowers the same day.

I will be sure to use your shop in the future for all my florist needs and will tell other family and friends likewise of what a pleasure doing business with your shop is!

Keep up the good work. Best regards, David



Several weeks ago a dear friend passed on suddenly. The arrangements were sort of "last minute" and we didn't have much notice. The family requested donations to a charity in lieu of flowers, but I wanted to send something. I thought a dish garden would be good.

I went to The Flower Pot and was pleased by their selection of dish gardens. I found one in an Asian-style container that looked like something my late friend would have chosen for his house. I discussed this with one of the owners and she helped me --I wanted a few flowers added to the arrangement and she chose the perfect ones. She gave me a 10% discount for being part of the 'hood and promised delivery. The overall price was quite reasonable.

When we arrived at the church for the memorial service, our dish garden was prominently displayed next to the guest book. It looked beautiful--lush plants and flowers just the right color.

I asked and was told me that they order most of their flowers through Veriflora. Although the flowers are not grown locally, they are sustainably grown (, which is a plus for me.

I hope you'll try The Flower Pot when you need a florist.

Flowers we bought from you guys (two arrangements) on April 17 are still kicking! That's 10 days. Take that, you knock off grocery store wanna be floral departments!


Good morning,

Mary Beth, I really appreciate your shop taking care of our employee and his family. I spoke with him right after he received it and he was so appreciative. I know they really enjoyed it.

Thanks again….have a good day.



THANK YOU so much for the bouquet of flowers you delivered to my friend at UT Hospital today. Another friend was in the room with her when they were delivered and said that they were amazing! I've only lived in Knoxville for a couple of years and wasn't sure which florist to use for something urgent like this---I took a guess, looked at your website, and made an excellent decision! I will look forward to using your shop again and will highly recommend you to others!

Thanks, Kelly


Hello I just wanted to say THANK-YOU SO MUCH for delivering a gourmet basket today for my Dad's Birthday. I called at 5:15 pm yesterday (Friday) for a next day delivery and was really surprised when you said you could do it! I am not sure who I spoke with on the phone, but they were delightful and very helpful.

The basket arrived at Noon today and it was reported as "fantastic".

Again, I can't thank you enough for helping me out on such short notice. You are the best!

Spread the Cheer Bouquet

The concept is simple - we deliver a lovely cheerful fresh flower arrangement, with our "Spread the Cheer" note attached. The original recipient keeps the bouquet for an hour, then passes it on to another friend, or stranger, who needs some cheer, or for no reason at all. The note stays with the flowers, so each recipient can follow the instructions, keeping this cheerful chain letter intact. At the end of the rounds, when the bouquet is beyond enjoyment, the last recipient can call us or bring in the vase and original card for a refill, to start this happy cycle all over again.

Have you received a Spread the Cheer Bouquet? Or given one away? Or do you have a suggested recipient to start the chain of kindness? Email us at [email protected] and tell us all about it!

Delivery Policy

A local delivery fee of $10.00 will be added to each order, for each address. (For deliveries outside our local delivery area, this fee may vary.)

U.S. orders must be received before 12:00 p.m. in the recipient's time zone to assure same-day delivery. Orders received after that time will be delivered the following day. If you need to arrange same day delivery after 1 p.m. please call.

We will do our best to accommodate deliveries at specific times of day, but we cannot guarantee it, especially during busy times like Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. If you need to give us information about the best time to deliver your order- please provide us with this in the "special instructions" field at check-out.

We are unable to make deliveries on Sundays. Deliveries requested on this day will be delivered the following business day.

Delivery of orders to rural route addresses or cemeteries cannot be guaranteed.

We call ahead to verify arrangments for all orders for delivery to Funeral Homes, Mortuaries, and Cemetaries. This is to ensure that your order arrives appropriately and in accordance with the Funeral Director's schedule.

While we do ask for a reciepient phone number it is our store policy not to call the recipient before delivery. If you would like us to call the recipient before we deliver, just ask. If you're ordering online you can put this request in the "special instructions" field. Otherwise, the recipient will only be called in the event that the driver cannot find their address, they are not home, or other extenuating circumstances. It is important that we have a working phone number for you- the customer- as well as the recipient.

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY- We will do our very best to deliver your order on the day requested. However, if incelement weather prohibits this your order will be delivered as soon as possible when conditions allow. For the safety of our employees. we will run a limited delivery route anytime the University of Tennessee is closed for weather. Under this limited delivery route we will prioritize deliveries for funeral services and hospitals but may not be able to accomodate home deliveries. We appreciate your understanding.

Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
