Tracy and her staff are the best to their clients!! I've been a customer from their first year and appreciate all the wonderful work they have done personally for me, and for Congregation Sha'arey Ha-Yam's High Holiday flowers!! Tracy came as a guest to the Business and Professional Women of Southern Ocean County and showed us how to make fabulous arrangements! Sharing her talents, what a woman!! I know that what ever the challenge, The Rose Garden is ready for it! Thanks for making Barnegat home for your business!! Cyndy Friedland

The Rose Garden...no one does it better. Not only are their arrangements over the top beautiful they last longer than any other floral arrangement I have ever received. Their shop is always sparkling clean and to say that Tracy is friendly is an understatement. I really don't think there is anything she does not know about flowers. Love, love, love that shop!!!

Without a doubt, Black-eyed Susan's is the BEST Florist around. I have known these gals for more than 15yrs and have always done my business with them for all occasions, birthdays, anniversary, funeral, wedding, etc.. Their flowers are always fresh, long lasting and the arrangements beautful. They do so much for the community as well, supporting awareness, charities, scholarships and anyone in need of help. They, as well as their staff are professionals in what they do and exceed all limits to make you a happy customer.

Black-Eyed Susan's is a sure winner with us and has always been! Even tho we are thousands of miles apart, they have always been very accommodating, pleasent to deal with and word received from family and friends in the states who have dealt with Black-eyed susan's and received flowers from them have always, always been positive. Time after time, I have always gotten calls, e-mails, from friends and relatives saying just how lovely and beautiful the flowers were from Black-eyed susan's and how delightful the ladies were to communicate with. Good Luck in your contest here!
