Our Story

A fifth-generation family-run florist, VanderSalm's has been providing the highest quality fresh blooms and plants to the Kalamazoo area since 1910.

Kalamazoo's Largest Florist

VanderSalm's Flower Shop and Garden Center is the leading florist in Kalamazoo county and beyond. Family-owned and operated since 1910, VanderSalm's has long been Kalamazoo's premier flower shop due to our excellent selection of high-quality plants and flowers, our outstanding customer service, and our dependability.

Located on the same block in the same neighborhood since opening our doors, we are community-oriented and entrenched in our community in every way possible. If a 501(C3) or non-profit of any type calls for a donation, we give 100% of the time. We consider customers as a part of our family and treat them as such, having provided florals for life events to generations of Kalamazoo families. We have the largest delivery area in the county and are known for going the extra mile. If we don't have something you want, we'll find a way to get it for you.

Being experts in the field of flowers and horticulture and providing excellent customer service is why VanderSalm's has been around for 110 years. We stay on top of the latest floral trends and can make any style of flower arrangement a customer may request. We have a full greenhouse and garden center and grow all of our own geraniums and poinsettias as well as many of our own cut flowers, potted plants, perennials, and annuals. People from all across the state drive to VanderSalm's just to purchase fresh blooms and check out our greenhouses. We also have a large gift store carrying anything from unique vases and home décor to hats and candles. In fact, the candles we sell are made in-house by the owner of the 1120 Candle Company, Ned.

Many of our flower experts and greenhouse specialists have been with us for a long time. Our extremely talented and creative floral designers are dedicated to crafting uniquely beautiful modern or traditional designs for any occasion, whether for sympathy or joy, congratulations or love, or just because. The quality of flowers, care, and attention to detail we put into every design, big or small, is unmatched. Providing the very best flowers with the very best customer service is a VanderSalm quality that runs in our veins.

In addition to a wide selection of plants and flowers, we also offer free consultations for all events. We give you one-on-one time to make your vision come true. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by, we'd love to say "hello" and show you our freshest seasonal blooms. Or, check out our selection online. If you want something custom-made, give a call, we'll be happy to design something special for you.
