Meet your producers

Earth Flowers has been providing The Merc with adorable potted succulents and beautiful cut flower bouquets since 2007. Co-owners Jozie Schimke and Brian Hnery began collecting succulents as they vacationed, and along with Jozie’s son, Homer Van Sant, have transformed their passion for plants into a thriving local business.
