April's Garden is Durango's award winning florist and gift shop located at 2075 Main Avenue. We are locally owned and operated by Colleen Clausen and Cassandra Gartin along with their creative and accomplished team of designers and delivery who are the friendly faces that deliver your flowers. We offer you convenience, value and service, along with the most exquisite floral design available. April's Garden has been voted Durango's Best Florist in the Readers Choice Awards every year since 2013, and we thank you all for nominating and voting for us as the best!

Several of our talented designers have been recognized in statewide design competitions and in national publications for floral design. High quality design is a trademark of April's Garden. Our floral artists participate in design training and competitions whenever possible to make sure we're at the top of our game and ahead of the curve.

Our Flowers

We strive to provide sustainably grown flowers year round from domestic growers, with our primary supplier providing Colorado grown flowers all year, in addition to sourcing exotic flowers from around the world as they are seasonally available. We feature locally grown flowers from James Ranch, LInnea Farms, Blue Lake Ranch and other local gardeners as they are seasonally available. Flowers arrive throughout the week to ensure optimal freshness and quality.

Commitment to Community & the Environment

April\\\\\'s Garden is proud to be a founding member of Local First (http://local-first.org/) and we support local artists, local independent businesses and the community through regular donations to local non-profit organizations. Since 2007 we have purchased 100% renewable energy through LPEA (http://www.lpea.coop/green_power/greenpower_commercial.htm). We make every effort towards sustainability in our business operations.

We are honored to be your local florist in Durango and La Plata County.
