About Kirby's Flowers

Kirby’s Flowers is family owned and operated and has been bringing a "Personal Touch" to Portsmouth and surrounding areas for 105 years and 4 generations of the Kirby family serving our community with floral arrangements for all occasions! We are committed to offering only the finest floral arrangements and gifts, backed by service that is friendly and prompt. Because all of our customers are important, our professional staff is dedicated to making your experience a pleasant one. That is why we always go the extra mile to make your floral gift perfect.

The present owners’ grandfather William Kirby began the business in 1924 in his own backyard. He grew garden flowers and sold them right on the curb of Robinson Avenue  Kirby’s business boomed so much, William rented a store on Gallia Street and started selling fresh cut flowers and plants.

Kirby’s seven children were involved in the business and expanded by purchasing their current location, 923 Gallia Street in the 1930’s. Kirby’s second generation to run the business was William’s children, Richard, John Sr., Gert and Grace Kirby. Third generation cousins, John Kirby Jr., took over in 1986 and Elisa Kirby in 1995.

They were born and raised in the family business and have worked at the store practically their whole lives. Now, Kirby’s is a florist as well as a gift shop.

The secret to the store’s success is excellent service and the personal touch the customer receives.

Kirby’s has talented designers that are set free to use their own imaginations and individual unique styles. Beauty and creativity in floral design begin at Kirby’s Flowers. Portsmouth’s leading full-service florist. Let Kirby's Flowers be your first choice for flowers.
