Know Your Sumter: Downtown -- Sumter's oldest flower shop is ready for florists' 'Black Friday' - Sumter Item
The volumes of flowers we get is what excites me."
Flowers and Baskets Florists, 29 W. Calhoun St., has been in Downtown Sumter for more than 75 years, according to Morlan. She and her husband, Richard Morlan, run the family owned and operated store together and have been prepping for florists' biggest day of the year.
For Valentine's Day, Morlan is selling a special bouquet of daisies and carnations for $40 in pink and red tins with holiday-based designs. However, if traditional roses are more your style, they have plenty ordered for the upcoming week.
Morlan suggests that if roses are your go-to, try adding lilies or other flowers to the bouquet. This will accent the bunch in a more unique and meaningful way, and it gives her the opportunity to design a bouquet for you herself.
"I'm a designer by nature, and my passion is designing," Morlan said.
Flowers and Baskets Florists is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday.
The store offers a $10 delivery service, except to hospitals and funeral homes.
To order ahead, call (803) 778-1444 or visit www.flowersnbaskets.net. Walk-ins are also welcomed.

No picky pansies or wilted impatiens in sight. She appreciates natives, allowing a buckwheat bush to grow wide and tall (nearly 8 feet across by about 6 feet tall) with its delicate whitish gray flowers. She also knows when which plants flower and what colors to add to areas of her garden that are too green.
Calhoun, a master gardener with the University of California, said making your garden colorful with blooms is deceptively simple. You can have rainbow of colors, textures and shapes, flowers that climb, clump, spread, tiny or large.
The biggest obstacle to growing flowers in our area, Calhoun said, is the clay soil. The soil itself is nutritious enough, she said, it's just hard to plant in because it doesn't drain well.
"Clay is packed tight, so tight it 's waterproof," she said.
