Located at the corner of NE 42nd Ave and Alberta Street, we are a small plant and flower boutique offering both garden design services and floral services for special events. You can expect to find both indoor and outdoor plants, fresh cut stems, as well as imported and local pottery.
Working with a connection to nature was always her goal, influencing her study in landscape architecture. She honed her design sense with the understanding of space and place.
After a few years gardening in the Pacific NW she launched Portland Bloem, a floral and garden design company named for her family heritage and the unique place she holds so dear.
Andrew Huie is a landscape designer focused on creating dynamic garden spaces that connect our built environment to the living nature surrounding us. His passion of outdoor environments keeps him involved firsthand with plants, gardens, and natural landscapes.
From an education in Landscape Architecture, Andrew has gained experience in both residential and commercial landscape design, as well as management of permaculture gardens and organic food systems. With respectful design principles Andrew emphasizes climate appropriate plants, regional hardscape materials, stormwater mitigation, and wildlife habitats.
As his study continues, Andrew is currently working towards his license in Landscape Architecture.
