In June 2009, owner Melissa Maas and the ladies of Pewaukee's Bank of Memories & Flowers planted a garden on the east side of the store. Their efforts that year and every year since have produced a small but beautiful retreat for insects, wildlife and customers alike. It has grown into a sustainable perennial garden that we harvest and use in arrangements and bouquets. No pesticides are used on the flowers and the store's rain barrel uses runoff to water the garden. As a matter of fact, when the shop's flower buckets are cleaned weekly, the week old flower water is used on the garden as well.
Be sure when you drive by or stop in the Pewaukee store, give yourself some time to look at our garden. Like any "parent", we are proud of our garden and want to show off!
