Bayport Flower Houses, located at 940 Montauk Highway in Bayport, is a long-standing tradition on the South Shore – serving these communities since 1932. We’re open 7 Days A Week, Monday-Saturday 8-6 pm and Sunday 9-3 pm.

Bayport Flower Houses began as a wholesale carnation grower, selling to the New York City market, under the management of Maria & Paul Auwaerter. In the 1930s, while the carnation crops were being harvested many of the stems would break off short. The wholesale market only demanded long stems so the short stem carnations were put in a bucket and placed outside the packing shed for people passing through to the local cemeteries.

Today, over 87 years later – Bayport Flower Houses is still under the management of the Auwaerter family. Maria and Paul’s grandchildren, Karl Auwaerter and Christine Saroka, head up a dedicated team of horticulturists and floral designers providing the local communities with the beauty of flowers & plants. While the business focus has changed from wholesale carnations to a renowned Retail Flower Shop, Garden Center and Landscape – the focus on customer service has never wavered.

The staff at Bayport Flower Houses will help you to find an extensive array of plants, garden accessories and giftware.  We are also members of a selective cooperative of garden centers called the Home & Garden Showplace. This affiliation recognizes us as one of the premier gardens centers and allows us to access valuable information needed to offer outstanding service and quality plants and products. This is much the way FTD has helped in our renowned Flower Shop.

So stop by Bayport Flower Houses’ and take some time to stroll through our shop – both inside and out, it’s the only way to see first hand the new and exciting! Or catch up on what’s happening with our latest issue of our newsletter The Gardener.

The Outside Nursery Yard is always bursting, the Show House is always filled with fantastic and colorful blooms, and masterful fresh flower designs are always available. Stop in and take time to smell the flowers, seven (7) days a week or give us a call at 800-729-0822/472-0014
