Neville McKay’s flower shop has put down some serious roots on Spring Garden Road. It’s been 25 years of My Mother’s Bloomers (5486 Spring Garden Road) growing with the downtown strip, but 2018 will see the business blossom in a brand new location in the north end.

“It’s not like I wanted to leave the road as much as I wanted to evolve a little bit more as well. We looked around the street, and other parts of the city, and when this area came up we thought it was quite something. It was just the energy in the neighbourhood,” says McKay of his new digs at 2086 Creighton Street, former home of Kevin Muise Interiors. “Spring Garden is a very vibrant important area, it’s a big hustle and bustle. When we first started on the street it was a little calmer—I think we all were—and I like that feel of that relaxation here, people sauntering around, going to the bakery or off to the Goggle or EDNA. There’s so much going on, it’s such a neighbourhood feel.”

Having a standalone storefront will be new for the shop, and McKay says all of the location’s space and windows have him daydreaming already—of more plants, window displays, crafts and community events. He’ll likely be digging into some sweet window planters, too. My Mother’s Bloomers will say goodbye to its old location just in time for the new year, moving out of its current shop December 31.

“The big trek will happen January 1,” says McKay. “Brand-new year, brand new spot, brand new us, brand new look.”
