Stephen Behee: Kona’s self-taught plant expert - West Hawaii Today
I also remember getting advice from Stephen during his decade-long stint at Jerry Walsh’s Kainaliu Gardens. He was always very knowledgeable and offered lots of helpful information.
ONE OF THE FEW COMPLETE NURSERIES REMAINING IN KONA
After years of working with Jerry, Stephen and Regina decided to make a change and moved back to California.
He immediately went to work for the largest interior plant business in southern California. Within six months the owner sold the business, placing Stephen in charge of the company. During a conversation with Jerry Walsh that year, he made the choice to return to Kona and his position at Kainaliu Gardens. Soon after, Jerry decided to sell the business and Stephen took it on, renaming it Anuenue Gardens. He and his wife Regina tried to make a go of it during a deep recession but finally decided it was time to close the business.
After closing Anuenue Gardens, Stephen worked with Bill and Debbie Downs at Kona Quality Gardens before landing his current managerial position at Craig Chambers Landscape Nursery. That’s a long and varied history in our local landscape industry.
Managing Craig’s two 5-acre nurseries gives Stephen the opportunity to apply many of the skills and lots of the information he’s gleaned in his 55 years working in horticulture.
Chamber’s nursery was founded about 12 years ago when Craig wanted a dependable supply of plants for his clients. The nursery now has hundreds of plants and carries varieties from small plugs to large specimen trees. This remains one of the few complete nurseries left in Kona.
Though the nursery was started to serve Craig and other landscape contractors, it has recently opened for retail sales to the public. Gardeners are now welcome to visit by appointment during business hours from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
If you are looking for something in particular or want to set up an appointment, give Stephen a call at 323-3908 or e mail him at email@example.com.
INSIDE THE OPERATION
He and his assistant manager, Michael Schloffel work well at overseeing operations and maintaining their large computerized inventory.
The nursery now has more than a dozen full time employees who manage the watering, weeding, pest control and propagation as well as filling plant requests. The managerial pair are dedicated to running the nursery sustainably by using as few pesticides as possible and monitoring water use as well.
I asked each of them to identify their favorite plants. Michael proudly pointed out the nursery’s large collection of ti plants. Among them was one of his favorites, the bronze colored “Peter Buck” variety.
Stephen then began waxing eloquent on his beloved orchids. He and his wife have a large collection including many that were collected in Mexico, Belize, Thailand and Venezuela. The nursery, however, does not usually carry orchids for sale.
When I asked Stephen to tell me what personal principles have guided him in his work, he was quick to respond, “Be honest.”
Honesty comes naturally to Stephen though he has seen some less-than-honest dealings in landscaping over the years. He has also seen the problems that can arise from broken promises and dishonest behavior in the industry and is dedicated to maintaining integrity in all of his business dealings.
Touring the grounds with Stephen and Michael, we passed many propagation tables where they start lots of plants. They did most of their own propagation in the past, but now the volume of plants required necessitates them buying stock as liner trays filled with hundreds of seedlings.
Several roadways crisscross through the nursery offering easy access for plant and soil pickup and delivery. Though most of the nursery is in full sun their propagation area and shade loving plants are protected with a large area of shade cloth. On our tour we also passed a huge pile of soil which is a special blend they ordered for their use as well as for a new n... Aug 22, 2019
Cig Harvey engages the senses with 'Eating Flowers' - Press Herald
Harvey’s work and find a way to put her text pieces on “an even plane with the photos.” He first saw Harvey’s photographs a decade ago at Dowling Walsh in Rockland, when he worked as a curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. “I’ve been paying attention to what she’s been doing since then,” he said. When Mansfield was appointed director at Ogunquit in 2017, one of the first artists he called to talk about a show was Harvey.
The name of the exhibition comes from the two neon text pieces that are in the show, one called “Eat Flowers” that Mansfield has placed on an exterior museum wall, and “Suck, Smell, Stare, Scratch, Sigh,” which hangs near the main entrance, on the inside. Rendered in brilliant blue text, the words in those pieces are mostly active verbs, and represent some of the actions people take when engaging their senses. The glowing, lighted text draws viewers into the museum.
The museum created movable sculpture pads for three flower boxes situated inside the exhibition space, offering visitors who choose to get up close the chance to smell. At the opening, Harvey served dandelion sandwiches and edible flowers to introduce the sensation of taste. “I love the idea of taking this weed that grows everywhere – in the city, in the country – and making something delicious with it,” she said.
In many ways it’s a perfect metaphor for her work. “Every day in Maine, I try to elevate the every day,” she said.
She’s thrilled with this exhibition and hopes people familiar with her work take the time to see it. “It’s the first time I have ever had such a comprehensive show of all my ideas coming together, and for it to be experiential was my goal and Michael’s goal,” she said. “We want you to feel the show and be active in it rather than just a viewer.”

Bloomsday: what's all the fuss about?
The IFI is screening Sean Walsh's Bloom, which offers a more straightforward version of the day's events than the book. And if you are wondering how a day in the life of Dublin today might compare, Piotr Sadowski's Dublin Only takes a contemporary journey through a Dublin that Joyce would not recognise (DLR Lexicon, 6.30pm, June 13th). Ulysses: Joyce's Bright Book of Life by Declan Kiberd takes place on Saturday, June 16th, at 11am, in Notre Dame Centre, Newman Church, St Stephen's Green.
I'm exhausted already. And hungry.Fear not. Begin the day as Leopold Bloom did, with a hearty breakfast: a bit of fried liver, pork kidney and a sup of tea. The annual costumed Bloomsday Breakfast serves a traditional fry alongside a soundtrack of music and readings from the book (James Joyce Centre, 8am, June 16th). If you fancy a bit more formality, The Citizen's Breakfast takes you on a theatrical promenade along Shelbourne Road, before stopping for a morning feast in Slattery's of Beggar's Bush (10.30am, June 16th).
If you can't rouse your appetite for breakfast, an afternoon tea event offers themed sandwiches and music-hall songs (James Joyce Centre, 2.30pm, June 16th). The culinary entertainment could go on all night. The Joyce of Food is a three-hour walking food trail, with a Ulysses-inspired menu (Dublin Castle, 4.30, June 15th), and if you find all the eating is thirsty work, The Joyce of Whiskey, a Joycean pub crawl, should wet your throat for a good sing-song (Dublin Castle, 6pm, June 13th).
It all sounds very edifying. But is there anything for the kids?With its experimental literary style and sexual preoccupations, Joyce's work is not really suitable for children, but that doesn't mean they can't partake in the festivities. Take a trip out to the James Joyce Tower and Museum in Sandycove where the book opens. Climb to the top and wait for one of the many scheduled performances to begin, while looking down on locals parading in Edwardian costume. The Bloomsday Readings and Songs in Wolfe Tone Square (3pm, June 16th) feature a variety of authors, including YA writer Dave Rudden, who will perform extracts from the work. Ulysses Goes Wild offers a local Joycean nature tour that older children will enjoy (10.30am/1pm/3pm/6pm, June 16th).bloomsdayfestival.ie

Roses: Getting the most bloom for your buck, and three ways to make them last longer
Check the video player above to see the roses and how they fared.Caring for your rosesWe went to Goldner Walsh Garden & Home in Pontiac to find out the best way to care for roses. The business has been around for 63 years. Tim Travis is the owner.“To get the most absorption, always just cut them at an angle because that gives more surface area for the water to be absorbed into the stem,” Travis says.Travis says use the food packet provided, because it has antibacterial agents and preservatives. And after a week, he suggests cutting them again.“Don’t put them in direct sun and put them in an area that’s away from drafty windows and heat vents,” he explains. “That will prevent them from drying out prematurely."If you buy flowers for someone from one of those national website, Travis says those orders are often filled by local florists. But here’s what you may not know. The local florist only gets a fraction of what you pay. The online retailers get the majority. So if you’d rather your support a local florist, find one and place a call directly to it. (WXYZ)Feb 3, 2017
Mahopac Flower Shop Owners to Be Honored
Freezin’. They did that year and continued to do so every year after that. Michael and Billy are funny, kind and are just good human beings.”
Tracey Walsh, community director of Relay for Life of Mahopac, agreed with Stack.
“Michael and Billy are two of the most giving people I know,” she said. “They create the purple ribbons that people purchase to decorate their homes or buildings to show their support for Relay for Life. They go out of their way to help in any way they can.”
There is a psychic to thank for Bothe, 57, and Fitzgerald, 75, setting up their flower shop in Mahopac almost 28 years ago.
“About a month before we found our shop in Mahopac, Billy went to a psychic who told him that a standalone building with a dirt drive would lead him to success,” recalled Bothe. “We went looking at places in Westchester and Greenwich, but when we walked into [the shop on Route 6 in Mahopac] I knew that this was where we were meant to be.”
Three years later the two moved from Westchester, bought a house in Mahopac and became pillars of the community.
Bothe, a Michigan native, believes that one of the main reasons that Mahopac Flower Shop has been so successful is the partners follow the cardinal rule that the customer is always right.
“They are, no matter what,” Bothe said. “There have been times that people have not liked the flowers. As an owner, you cancel the order and send them more flowers. It is like being in the food business. If someone doesn’t like the food, they aren’t going to pay for it.”
The store owners even go above and beyond when an error is not their fault.
“One Valentine’s Day we got a bad bunch of roses; the heads of the roses started to droop after a few hours,” said Bothe. “After we got a few complaints, we got in touch with every order we could track on paper and replaced the flowers. It was the right thing to do.”
Once a bride forgot to order a bouquet for one of her bridesmaids.
“The bride realized it while she was getting dressed,” said Bothe. “We ran back to the shop, created a similar looking bouquet to match the order and met everyone at the church. When the bride got back from her honeymoon she called to thank us and wanted to pay for the additional bouquet. I told her not to worry about it, that it was done and that the important thing was that her wedding day went great.”
While there are many floral services out there that allow people to order flowers online and have them delivered by the closest florist, Mahopac Flower Shop does not participate in them.
“Those services misre...
