We are a unique Green Bay, WI florist that sources flowers grown around the world as well as on our own flower farm. We believe there is some magic involved in the creation of something as perfect as a peony, and we feel honored to be a part of the magic that turns flora into feelings.
Affectionately known as "The Push" to those that love it, Petal Pusher was started in 1992 by Todd Trimberger in Allouez, WI. Nichole Campbell joined the team in 1998, and in 2006 took ownership of the business, along with the help and support of her husband Shawn. They chose to focus on the aspects of the business that Nichole was most passionate about (the flowers, of course!) After being contacted by the Broadway District, Petal Pusher relocated downtown in 2014 (best business decision ever!) In 2015 they were able to realize a dream and further expand with the purchase of 26 acres to begin their own flower farm (Petal Pusher Gardens), where they grow fresh cut flowers, sustainably source natural materials and find endless botanical inspiration. Petal Pusher is a full service florist providing everything from daily deliveries to large scale events to incredibly custom wedding work. They source locally from their own farm as well as two other local growers, in addition to sourcing globally off of the Dutch flower auction and around the world. Their design style focuses on the natural and organic with a touch of the whimsical, and they are every bit as likely to love a tendril as a tulip.
Nichole Campbell, Owner and Lead Designer
My love of all things botanical started with my very first job in a floral shop during high school. That love grew as I completed my bachelor's degree in plant biology at UWGB and continued working in both the retail and wholesale side of the industry. A trip to explore the Netherlands and the honor of working with some amazingly creative people cultivated that love, and I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to become a part of the amazing story and place that is Petal Pusher.
