Flowers for a fall table

I pinched pennies working a few jobs until I was able to pull together the funds open my flower shop. I owned and operated Peppertree Floral here in Bloomington for over 10 years and loved nearly every minute of it. As my kiddos got older the schedule became increasingly more difficult to maintain, so sadly I moved on. Now, years later, I still find myself yearning to clip some stems and create colorful arrangements for my home.This month I got the itch and decided to take a trip to Harvest Moon Flower Farm. The owner, Linda Chapman, walked me through the farm and handpicked some blooms for me to work with. The farm was an inspiration. Fall colors cascading through the rows, sunflowers, dahlias and zinnia in shades of orange, brown and red.Arranging flowers can seem intimidating, but there are a few things to keep in mind to make flower arranging a cinch.Buy qualityStart by purchasing high quality flowers. When you get them home, give them a snip and let them drink in a bucket of warm water.Pick the right size vaseIt’s easy to get frustrated when your flowers keep slumping to the side, but you can avoid this by choosing a container that isn’t too big. If you are doing a tall arrangement gather the stems in your hand and make note of how wide the neck of the vase needs to be to accommodate. With a short, squat arrangement, like this one, look to the flowers heads. The vase should be slightly smaller tha... (The Herald-Times (subscription))

Fire station flowers add beauty, help insects

Anyone passing by one of the five fire stations in Bloomington may notice colorful purple, orange and yellow flowers outside the stations. What they may not know is that the flowers are more than just a way to beautify the area — they serve as "way stations" for monarch butterflies and other pollinating insects.The flower gardens were started last year by Ann Kamman, a longtime Bloomington resident and gardening enthusiast, after she attended a talk at the Unitarian Universalist Church about the importance of gardens for butterflies and other pollinating insects. She knew about an effort to establish vegetable gardens at the city's fire stations, and asked which firefighter was the "plant person." That's when Kamman began working with Sgt. Brandon Hudson.Together they filled five big pots with milkweed and flowering plants at the downtown Fourth Street fire station. Then Hudson delivered one to each of the other fire stations."I was just trying to get milkweed started wherever I could," Kamman said.This year, each of the five stations...

Stanley Bachman grew the family's floral business

Paul, who retired from ­Bachman's last year.Bachman, 93, died on July 15 at Friendship Village in Bloomington.He was born in 1924 in a big house on the Bachman ­family acreage on Lyndale Avenue, where the flagship garden center stands today.After graduating from Washburn High School, he enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard in 1941 and worked on a transport ship in the Pacific. He never forgot the destruction he witnessed when going on shore after the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, said Paul.When Bachman was on leave, he met Georgia "GeeGee," who was attending the University of Minnesota."They just fell for each other," said Paul Bachman. The couple married in 1948 and raised two sons in Richfield.Upon returning from his tour of duty, Stanley had planned to pursue a different career, "but Stan realized the value and beauty of plants, flowers and trees," said Dale Bachman, the current CEO. "He said it was the best choice he ever made by re-entering the family business."Stanley Bachman served as a mentor to ambitious employees. He hired Dick Herberg, then a teenager, to work at the Lyndale store. He eventually became the COO, remaining with the company for 47 years."Stan taught me ethics and to always supply the best products for customers," Herberg said.He also was a stickler for details."Dad would walk into a store and find the one plant that hadn't been watered," said Paul Bachman.Active in many retail florist organizations, he was elected to the Society of American Florists Hall of Fame in 1989 for his many contributions."Stan was always available to give other florists advice to help them succeed," said Peter Moran, CEO of the society.After retirement, he served as chairman of the board of directors and continued to plant and maintain his vast vegetable and flower gardens in his Richfield yard.In their 60s, Stanley and Georgia started golfing and took frequent golfing trips until Georgia's death in 2014.Even at age 90, Bachman was tending the gardens on the grounds of Friendship Village senior housing."Stan was more than just a smart businessman," said Herberg. "He was one of the nicest people you'd ever meet on this Earth."Bachman is survived by his two sons, Paul and Pet... (Minneapolis Star Tribune)
