Mother Virginia Flowers Moving to 3903 Georgia Ave, NW

Back in April ’09 Mother Virginia flowers opened up at the corner of Georgia and Allison St, NW. Turns out that that space was a bit too small. That location will remain open until they complete their move to 3903 Georgia Ave, NW (near Qualia Coffee) at the end of March or beginning of April.

I was eager to learn to what was moving into this newly renovated space.

    Pretty sure this place is already open at its new, next-to-Qualia location. I walked by it yesterday.

    I have purchased a couple of great plants there.

    At least it’s still in the neighborhood, just five blocks south of its current spot. Let’s hope something good replaces it at the Georgia and Allison location.

    Still waiting for an Irish pub. Maybe there . . .

    I hope the move closer to the Metro and near Qualia brings them more walk-in business. I’m usually the only customer in there when I get flowers for the wifey. Though I usually go during the day since I work from home. Glad they’re moving up in the world. Looks like they do a lot of delivery. Everyone that works there is quite nice and their flowers tend to last much longer than what you would get at the grocery store. Support them by buying flowers and make someone happy!

    I love this place! Bob did the flowers for my wedding and they were spectacular. I’m glad to see they’ll be closer to me so I can stop by more often.

      I second the wedding reco. Bob did an amazing job for my wedding as well. He’s the nicest dude ever. His shop deserves all the increased foot traffic it can get!

    Yeah! Awesome that they’ve moved closer. I sometimes stop by on Sundays and pick up a bouquet for the week. It’s amazing what they put together for a reasonable price and the flowers are so fresh, they’ll last 2 weeks. Very exciting news!!

    Unlike the other supporters of this florist, my experience was very different.

    While the floral arrangements are nice, the man who runs the place is quite rude… I have seen him berate his employees, and he treated me more like a nuisance than a customer.

    While the flowers from Safeway won’t last as long, at least I feel like I am an appreciated customer. Perhaps when they move, they should also move some employees around – or out the door.
