Avant Gardens

7220 Bird Road
Miami, Florida 33155
(305) 554-4300 or (800) 771-7150

Why not say "I Love You Mom" with flowers or a plant garden so that Mom can look at it every day and think of you? Avant-Gardens is one of Miami's leading florists. All you have to do is explain what you are looking for or describe Mom's favorite garden delights. The staff is knowledgeable and has been doing this long enough to take it from there. Avant Gardens delivers as far south as Homestead, as far west as Perrine and as far north as Aventura and North Miami Beach. This florist has been serving its customers since 1989. Why not go "Over The Moon" for Mom with a crescent vase filled with white hydrangeas, orchids and tulips or send a "Mom's Butterfly Bouquet." Let Mom retreat to her favorite room of the house to enjoy some downtime with a hand-picked peaceful Zen garden. Perhaps you know exactly what Mom would like and Avant Gardens gives you the opportunity to design your own gift basket as another option, which can also include fruit and candles. It is the best way to say "I love you Mom."
