Our History


The secret to our longevity? Loyalty.

We may have grown over the last century (and beyond), but our values have remained consistent. When George Carson Boyd started the shop as a vegetable, fruit and flower stand in Wilmington back in the day, the focus quickly turned to the flowers. Boyd began growing them, and a few years later, opened a storefront downtown. After WWII, Boyd sold his shop to Pat Roop, one of his designers, and her husband, Harvey. They ran the business until the late 1970s, passing it on to their daughter Linda and her husband Reid Kellogg. Eventually, the Cinaglia family assumed the shop, and they remain at the helm to this day.

Boyd's has always been a family-run business, currently in its fifth generation. That family is front and center in the store, working alongside dedicated employees and with long-term vendors who themselves feel like family. During George Carson Boyd's tenure, the shop was one of the original 17 florists that started FTD. Today, Boyd's Flowers is always in Teleflora's Top 100. It's consistently the News Journal's Reader's Choice florist and has been named Best of Delaware.

We've prided ourselves on our sense of loyalty to our customers, our commitment to exceptional quality, and our devotion to our community. We're proud to keep doing so.
