" Sargent’s is my favorite place to shop for flowers in Red Wing. The staff is incredibly wonderful and always willing to help. I also have had the privilege to have Sargent’s re-landscape my yard and it was a great experience. Julie and her staff are great! I have another project for you this spring and I can’t wait!"
