Come See Us!

As you walk through the front door of Bluem you instantly feel the peace and serenity this place offers. .

Orchids line the front windowsill as they say hello when you enter.  

Everywhere the eye looks, live green plants and succulents are flourishing in the sunshine streaming in through the window panes.  Handmade rattan baskets and unique containers are filled with custom designed arrangements, with plenty available empty for your own design.

Make sure to meet “Fern the Worm”, peeking out from under a very large Swiss Cheese Plant.   Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy all that our shop has to offer you as we “Nourish Your Soul Through Nature”. 

Custom Plant Design

As Master Gardeners and avid plant lovers, we offer our education and years of experience to help clients select the perfect plants for their specific needs.  We are here to create a design for you in a container you bring in, or one you choose to purchase from us.  Bluem also offers offsite custom design for those containers or urns that are just too bulky to bring into our shop.   Simply make an appointment and we will load Old Blue up with soil and plants and come to you.  At Bluem, we want to make owning plants easy and enjoyable.

Our Workshops 

At Bluem we believe in sharing our knowledge and love of plants with our friends.  In the center of our shop you will find a large farmhouse table inviting you to attend one of our workshops.  Some of our workshops will include:  Making a Succulent Garden on a Cinderella Pumpkin, Creating a Thanksgiving Tablescape using a Pine Cone Wreath, Creating a Fresh Garland Spray for Christmas, and many more wonderfully creative ideas.  We will also be bringing in instructors from the Rome community to share their talents with our clients.  Daytime classes will be offered as well as a nighttime “Sip and Create”.  Class size will be limited to allow for social distancing.
