Bloom! Blooms and more
In addition to selling retail plants and garden supplies, Bloom! is a new partnership with landscape architect Serge van der Voo and with Cory Mann's Poseidon Ponds and Landscaping. "We'll be specializing in water gardening," Pelletier says. "It will be a new resource for the area. No one around here is doing that very well." And on Saturday afternoons another Tsogyelgar offshoot, White Lotus Farms, will park its cart on the premises and sell vegetables, artisan bread, and cheese.
Pelletier will also be hosting biweekly free classes and workshops, listed on Bloom!'s website (the June schedule includes water gardening, flowering shrubs, and gardening with kids). Because the building is not winterized, Bloom! will probably close in November for the cold months.
Bloom! Garden Center, 1885 Baker Road, Dexter. 426-6600. Mon.-Thurs. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Fri. 10 a.m.-7:30 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. bloom-gardens.com.
