Young's Greenhouse and Flower Shop is a family owned and operated, full service florist, greenhouse and garden business that opened its doors here in Fort Wayne back in 1873.

To learn the secret of the operation's staying power, WBOI's Julia Meek coaxed Sandy Young and her son Blake away from the shop and into our studio to talk about the passion they've cultivated through their craft, and how "saying it with flowers" speaks to them.
