I used to buy all of my flowers from Lowes or Home Depot, but once I randomly bought some flowers from this Harris Teeter and now I will never go back to Home Depot or Lowes. I bought some cut carnations from this Harris Teeter and they lived forever. OK not forever, but they lasted an extremely long time. I have since bought numerous potted plants and house plants from this store and they all do wonderfully well. Periodically, this store also has the big tropical exotic plants as well. This is not your ordinary flower area in a grocery store. There is almost always a floral worker in the department. I can also request certain arrangements from them. I once brought in a particular vase and she made me an arrangement with it. It is like an expensive floral shop, without the expense. I love it!!
