Container Gardening Blog



Are you a florist?

Diana and her designers proudly call themselves Container Gardeners! Bloom's specialized focus is designing and planting beautiful outdoor arrangements in our client's pots and containers. We strive to provide a welcoming entrance and instant curb appeal for our residential and commercial clients and their guests.

What is it that makes your product/service unique from your competitors?

Quite simply, owner Diana sets us apart from our competitors. Diana has a BS in Business/Marketing, from Elizabethtown College, studied Design at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, graduated from the floral design program at the Mansion House School of Design in Lancaster, and has studied at Longwood Gardens. Diana is able to apply all that she learned -- color theory, scale, textures, etc. She really gets to know her clients, their styles and preferences, and she look at their home's architecture. She asks clients if they are good at (and interested in) maintaining their plants, or if they want low-maintenance arrangements. Their answers tells her what to plant for them and all of that helps us provide container gardens that they will love. You will find no "cookie cutter" designs here!

How did you start this business?

Diana formed this niche business because it combines her passions, interests, and education-- all in one! At Bloom, we have a passion to celebrate each and every season and experience the joy of bringing custom designs to our clients!

Do you do more than just summer container gardens?

Yes! We celebrate all four seasons by designing seasonal planter arrangements for our clients -- we bring fun container garden ideas to all four seasons - Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. In fact, our winter and holiday business is just as popular as our summer projects.
