our roots

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.

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.
