Truck Bed Blooms

Hunting & Gathering

We bet you’ve never smelled a truck bed so sweet as Sweet B’s Flower Truck, where owner Jen Sekel pulls and customizes floral arrangements for every mood and occasion right from the truck bed of her classic 1952 Chevrolet pickup. Inspired by her love of vintage mobiles and floral arrangements, Sekel got her concept of flowers on wheels rolling amidst the uncertainty and instability of the pandemic. Sekel understood everyone was in need of day-brightening this year and she had a desire to make people feel warm inside by extending a helping stem.

“We had our grand opening on Valentine's Day weekend and we have been building relationships with our customers one stem at a time ever since,"  says Sekel. "That's really what it's all about!”

With a seasonal selection of annual summer flowers, mixed with a plethora of perennial blooms, build beautiful bouquets each one different than the next. From romantic roses and sunflowers to darling mini ornamental pineapples, Sweet B's selection is an evergreen nod to Florida's vibrant fruit and florals. Most popular recently, Sekel is selling a vast variety of Proteas—with bright colors and sharp petal shapes, this species adds a tropical touch to any arrangement. 

“I keep many different types of blooms on the truck and make sure they aren't something you could just pick up from the grocery store," she says. "I look for different colored exotic flowers." 

You can smell, spot and shop Sweet B’s every Sunday at the Lakewood Ranch Farmers Market from 10am - 2pm.
