About Petal & Stem


Hey all, I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Michelle and I am the owner of Petal & Stem. 

In October 2016 I took a huge leap of faith, quit my 8-5 job, and purchased The Country Store. I put my heart and soul into that charming flower shop and home decor business. During my three years at The Country Store, I successfully grew the business and brought joy into people’s homes through my floral bouquets and home decor selection.

During the summer of 2019, I took time to reflect on how wonderful the last three years had been and I wondered how I could expand my business in the future. When the local greenhouse came up for sale, I took another huge leap of faith, dove in head first and asked to buy it. The rest is history in the making!

I moved my florist business, The Country Store, across the street to the greenhouse business, formerly Garden Gate Greenhouse & Gifts, and merged the two businesses into one. Along with the merge and the move, I also changed the name of my shop to Petal & Stem - A Floral & Garden Boutique.

I’m very thankful that I had the opportunity to purchase two successful, existing businesses in Spalding, Nebraska from two amazing ladies. The support and guidance from these two women have been priceless along my journey as an entrepreneur. 

Thank you all for stopping by, I am so excited for you to join me on my venture!
