The Greenhouse 817 began in 2014 in Deryk Poynor's backyard greenhouse. After several months of successfully selling her succulent and cacti creations through Instagram, Deryk knew it was time to expand. Thus, The Greenhouse 817 was born, a sprawling 4,500 square foot warehouse filled with beautiful botanicals and modern containers, where Deryk and her staff craft thoughtfully executed arrangements.

Deryk Poynor

From making a mess of her mother’s garden at a young age, to working with an event florist and learning floral design as an adult, Deryk has always felt a special connection to plants. Dissatisfied with the more traditional designs found in local florist shops, Deryk created The Greenhouse 817 to bring modern, unique botanical designs to Fort Worth.

Jordan Cook

Jordan's love for plants came much later in life with the purchase of their first home and the desire to fill the space with life. Although she credits her her husband with the majority of the care. Jordan has always had a passion and love for small business. Her role at The Greenhouse 817 includes all things operations, more than likely she's the one on the other end of the line.
