Founded by husband and wife co-owners, David Gerst and Robin Pacholder in 2002, The Cutting Garden is a floristry shop located in Hedwig Village, Houston that’s since been twice voted Houston's "Best Florist” and named one of the world's leading florist by Departures magazine.
According to the co-founders, their diverse backgrounds in business and the arts compliment their creativity. While Robin majored in photography at Princeton, but went on to get a law degree and then became a Charted Financial Analyst, David also got a law degree (after graduating from Stanford) and practiced law for several years, before became a writer. Nowadays, they have an 11-person strong team who craft unique hand-tied bouquets for the people of Houston.
Describing their style as “creative and diverse, with unusual textures and vibrant colours”, David and Robin believe that the gift of flowers “immediately gratifies people's senses and emotions”. “They’re a visual delight, and can offer both joy and comfort. Flowers can also cement ties of friendship, family and business.”
