The Team at Pam's Flower Garden
Pam's Flower Garden
793 Princess St.
History of the Company
Pam’s Flower Garden was created July 14th, 1962
by John and Mary de Ruiter.
After working many years in Kingston they decided to pursue the flower business. Pam’s Flower Garden has always been at its current location at 793 Princess Street. The building was also used as a Beer Store and ice house prior to 1962.
John and Mary have two children. Pam was 2 years old and Jeff was 5 years old at the time of opening the shop. Thus the name Pam’s Flower Garden was born. In the early years Mary and John processed the flowers and plants, wrote up the orders from customers and then hand delivered orders to many families in and around Kingston.
The business slowly evolved and grew over the years and many staff members were added to help build the business. Thama Weir, Dorothy Stanley and Ken Butler were some of the 1st staff members at Pam’s. The building that houses the flower operations was renovated many times over the years with the addition of a few apartments above the shop and continual renovations on the main retail floor level. Today is a representation of the many years of planning the look you see inside and outside at Pam’s. In 2008 Pam’s was nominated for the outside renovation in the Livable City Design Awards.
Our commitment to our community is very important and we firmly believe in giving back. Donations to numerous local charities including the United Way, Boys and Girls Club of Kingston, Minor Hockey, Easter Seals, Hospice and to 100’s of other local charities and fund raisers. We have received many letters of thanks, awards for donation participation and business awards including Top 25 Teleflora Florist in Canada and voted #1 Kingston Florist by Kingston This Weeks readers poll for 8 straight years.
Currently Jeff and Pam de Ruiter with a big assist from their other halves Marianne de Ruiter and Don Timmins run the day to day operations. John and Mary have their finger on the pulse at the shop every day and have been wonderful mentors to their children. With a fantastic team of floral designers, sales associates, office personnel, delivery staff and floral assistants we have formed a team that believes in providing interesting design, fresh flowers and plants, a fun and ever changing look inside the shop.
Today Pam’s Flower Garden is more than just flowers and plants. New and exciting lines of woman’s fashions including clothing, scarves, jewellery, and hand bags have been added to an exciting mix of product.
We want to express our sincere thanks to all of our wonderful staff and many loyal customers who have grown with us over the years. It has been our honour and pleasure to be involved and part of this wonderful community called Kingston.

Resumes will only be accepted by email.
Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
