Blumen Gardens and The Garden Market in Sycamore, Glidden Florist in DeKalb and Lloyd’s Landscaping and Everything Floral in Genoa.Chowdhury-Woodstrup spoke to MidWeek’s Katrina Milton about the Garden Walk and this year’s featured gardens.Milton: What is the University of Illinois Extension DeKalb County Master Gardeners’ Garden Walk?JCW: The Garden Walk showcases different styles throughout DeKalb County. It is a day-long event, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Some people turn it into an annual outing, coming every year. Event attendees can see new plant varieties and see how other gardeners place their plants and design their garden. The Garden Walk can also become a networking event. You can meet people with similar ideas and mindsets. Gardening, by its very nature, can be an isolationist hobby. What the Garden Walk affords is an exchange of ideas and conversation to anyone interested in gardens and gardening.Milton: Can you tell me more about the featured gardens?JCW: We continually strive to highlight different types and styles of gardens, and this year is no different. This year, we have seven gardens on the Garden Walk, including a garden in Kirkland that is a certified habitat by The National Wildlife Federation, a garden in DeKalb that has 150 different varieties of daylilies and a garden in Sycamore that has a 7,000-gallon pond with two waterfalls and a stone bridge.Milton: Will there be a lot of flowers on display?JCW: There will be flowers, but gardens are not always about flowers. Some gardens focus more on greenery, leaves and plants like hostas. Others have more vegetables and herbs. Each gardener has a vision for their garden. Some gardeners want blooming flowers, others are more concerned with placement and design.Milton: What is the Garden Walk’s educational spotlight?JCW: Walnut Grove Vocational Farm in Kirkland is this year’s educational spotlight. The farm provides agricultural and horticultural-based training for people with disabilities. Their U-Pick field will be open from 9 a.m. to noon, and visitors can view the farm’s native prairie that is under construction, their chicken coop, greenhouses and garden beds. Our DeKalb County Master Gardeners will be providing refreshments, cookies... http://www.midweeknews.com/articles/2017/07/10/cbc45c2d62614ccda7e4976aca06ee18/index.xml

The shop has also started to offer design workshops for groups to learn how to create arrangements such as floral head wreaths or living succulent wreaths.While Vicente Vorse has experience as a florist, he insists that his spouse has an innate talent for original floral designs. He pointed to one of Jason Vorse’s signature designs, cymbidium orchids arranged as a locus, which he said has now been replicated by many others.“It’s very mesmerizing to watch him work,” Vicente Vorse said. “It’s very easy for him. … Other people try to mimic him, but the catty in me is like, ‘You’re not doing it right.’ ”While Jason Vorse may be the expert in floral design, Vicente Vorse’s eye as a visual merchandiser created Pollen’s bright and whimsical interior.The spacious, one-room shop has a tall wooden work table, a glass cooler displaying vibrant flowers, succulents hanging from glass bulbs and chalkboard walls swirling with freehand etchings of colorful vines and blooms. Three mounted deer heads and twisting wooden displays add a splash of the unconventional.This unique taste is what is bringing in customers and event bookings, they said.“I think (the community is) excited to see a fresh take on things,” Jason Vorse said. “We’re constantly changing and presenting new looks, designs and creations.”... http://tdn.com/news/local/la-florists-set-up-shop-in-castle-rock/article_9a9186d2-1096-58a0-aa53-0c20a45a6618.html
