Popular Seasonal Events
Our mission at Edwards Greenhouse and Flowershop is to provide children between the ages of 3 and 12 the opportunity to experience gardening through stories and hands-on activities. The children's gardening club (Edwards Earthworms) is dedicated to instilling a lifetime love of gardening and continuing education. Our objectives are as follows:
1. Provide a place to meet, learn and experience garden and floral activities.
2. Educate children about safe, eco-friendly and sustainable garden practices with guidance from Edwards Greenhouse staff.
3. Promote awareness of the importance individual actions make on a community.
Saturdays from 11a.m. to 12p.m. Check the calendar for dates! All children from ages 3 - 12 are invited to join us!

Edwards Greenhouse provides classes throughout the year, on various subjects and gardening experience levels. Classes are most often free to the public; if fees are applicable they are to cover the cost of supplies.
We provide revolving classes on seed starting, pruning, vegetable growing, and what’s new for the season. We also provide classes on fairy and/or miniature gardening, floral design topics, container gardening, and landscaping subjects. Classes are instructed by horticultural specialists & avid gardeners, such as Edward’s employees, the University of Idaho Master Gardeners program, local garden authors & columnists, landscapers, and folks around town with a passion for all things gardening.
We are always open to suggestions for classes!
Weddings, Parties, & After-Hour Events
Sorry, afraid not. It's true we've hosted some great weddings here, but we no longer offer this service. Upon occasion we will host evening events, fundraisers, and private classes. If you're looking for wedding flowers or other botanical décor for your event, we can certainly help you out with that! Visit The Flowershop's page for more info.
