My wife and I stopped by after lunch unannounced. We were pleasantly greeted with the history of the business and invited to self-tour four of the greenhouses. A most interesting activity. We bought one orchid to take home which was nicely packaged for transport.

We toured Carter & Holmes with my niece and her family, and besides enjoying the gorgeous blooms, found some nice photo ops.

Whether ordering online or visiting in person, they're the best. Get on their mailing list and visit during open house. You'll have a great and low-key time.
