Select Local Merchants

English Gardens began as a single, family-owned nursery in 1954, and has since blossomed into a full-service landscaping and garden center with multiple locations, all owned and operated by second-generation family members. Each location facilitates both indoor and outdoor gardening projects. The florist department brings the outdoor flourish inside by arranging fresh-cut floral bouquets and gift baskets for all manner of occasions. Workshops and in-store presentations also allow the green-thumbed experts to impart advice on common gardening and decorating topics such as building a kitchen herb garden or housetraining a dogwood tree. During the summer season, English Gardens holds a summer planting sale as well as weekly in-store gardening tutorials every Saturday at 10 a.m.

Pro Tip: All the employees brew and make their own wine and mead

The "re" in Habitat for Humanity ReStore's name is a nod to recycling, one of the stores' main goals. Each store is stocked with a rotation of gently used and discounted home-improvement supplies. That could mean wares that range from granite countertops to plumbing fixtures, all selling for up to 75% off retail prices.

The stores benefit their communities by minimizing waste and rendering home improvement more affordable, but they don't stop there. The proceeds from their sales benefit local chapters of Macomb Habitat for Humanity, funding affordable housing for those who need it.

Frank Mancuso Sr. opened the original Mancuso's Florist in Detroit in 1923 and even kept the doors open on Sundays—a rarity at the time—in order to provide the citizens with the perfect arrangement any time they needed a gift or to dress up their homes. Since its launch close to 90 years ago, the store has opened and operated every single day of its existence. They've never stopped prioritizing customer service, accommodating special requests that include creating personalized baskets for memorable occasions and delivering arrangements early in the morning, before sweethearts crawl out of their cocoons.

The family's three generations of hard work have paid off. Mancuso’s Florist won Best Flowers in a 2012 poll of CityVoters, and readers of St. Clair Shores Patch named it Best Florist in 2012. In addition to providing breathtaking flowers and plants, the knowledgeable crew can recommend thoughtful gifts and novelties. Seasonal "epic roses"—which stand more than 5 feet tall and grow between two volcanoes in Ecuador—were featured on Fox 2 News and are ideal for expressing affection to an NBA player.
