Our Story

It all started with a seed.

In 1910, James and Mary McArdle opened a store in downtown Greenwich to supply gardeners on the grand Greenwich estates. From that humble beginning, McArdle’s blossomed into a full-service florist and garden center.

Throughout the years, McArdle’s has grown with the times. For four generations and over 100 years, we have provided Greenwich and the surrounding cities with the very best floral arrangements, indoor plants, outdoor plants, garden supplies, and gifts. As an industry leader, we pride ourselves with bringing our customers the highest quality products paired with incomparable customer service. We are a six-time pick for Best Of The Gold Coast, and have won numerous other local and national awards in both our flowershop and garden center.

Our award-winning floral department features the most talented, innovative and creative designers in the country! We carry exotic and unusual flowers as well as the best quality traditional favorites. Our floral team has the expertise to bring arrangements to an unmatched level of beauty and sophistication.

Similarly, our award-winning garden center has been keeping the landscapes of Greenwich and the surrounding communities beautiful for over a century. Our selection of common and unusual annuals, perennials, edible plants and organic products, coupled with our gardening experts and legendary customer service make McArdle’s the favorite destination for gardeners in the region.

Our McArdle’s AtHome services bring our design and decorating experts to your home, landscape or business. We can design, install and maintain an entryway, garden, patio area or your entire yard. Let us complete your interior design with the perfect plants and arranged flowers for your home or office. Our selection of backyard furniture and accessories and indoor decorative accents is unparalleled!

Our commitment to Greenwich, Stamford and Westchester County runs as deep as our passion for beautiful plants and flowers. We have joyfully hosted the Reindeer Festival, and joined forces with Friends of Autism, Breast Cancer Alliance, Greenwich Land Trust, Boys and Girls Club, Kids In Crisis, Adopt-a-Dog, Greenwich Tree Conservancy and numerous other organizations. We have supported local Little League teams and High School clubs. We have planted gardens at Armstrong Court, Wilber Peck and Adams Gardens, and planted trees throughout the town of Greenwich.
