Michaleen's Florist and Garden Center

About Us

Michaleen’s has been a staple in the Ithaca area for over twenty years. As our diverse community has grown, so has Michaleen’s. Several years ago we added two greenhouses and expanded our nursery to meet the needs of the growing community. We are known for our unique arrangements, weddings, special events, eclectic gifts, statuary and fountains. Michaleen’s is a full service florist, garden center and nursery. Our flowers are delivered daily to ensure our customers receive the freshest product available.

Owner of Michaleen's Florist and Garden Center is Michaleen Herzog, a 1984 graduate of Cornell University. As a Cornell Alumn, Michaleen's strives to give the best service for Cornell University flowers and deliveries in Ithaca, NY.

Delivery Policy

A local delivery fee starting at $10 will be added to each order, for each address. For areas outside our local delivery area, this fee will be larger.

U.S. orders must be received before 12:00 Noon in the recipient's time zone to assure same-day delivery. Orders received after that time will be delivered the following day.

We are unable to make deliveries on Sundays. Deliveries requested on this day will be delivered the following business day.

Delivery of orders to rural route addresses or cemeteries cannot be guaranteed.

We will be happy to accept your international orders if you call our shop directly. We are unable to accept international orders over the Internet.

Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
