Bloomtown™ is where gardeners go to grow and garden dreams come to life. It’s a place where colorful foliage and flower inhabit carefully-planned spaces that reflect the site, and the needs and dreams of those who inhabit them. We are passionate about helping gardeners unlock the secrets of garden-making. We work to help gardeners grow by expanding their knowledge and skills, and as a result, to broaden their garden horizons. We strive to connect people with the outdoor world, aiding them on their own journey to Bloomtown.
Our company, Bloomtown Gardens, led by principal designer Darcy Daniels, has been designing gardens and helping clients connect with their outdoor spaces since 2001. With a focus on creating residential gardens in and around Portland, Oregon, we place an emphasis on creating spaces for outdoor living, and gardens that delight the senses year-round, and we’re well known for our rich, textural plantings and creative use of small space. We’re passionate about plants and helping gardeners be successful in their garden-making pursuits; and in turn connecting with their most creative selves.
Gardens designed by Bloomtown have been featured in many print and online publications, including Sunset, Fine Gardening, Pacific Horticulture, Garden Design online, Gardenista, Better Homes & Gardens, Oregon Home, Homes and Gardens Northwest, and more. Darcy’s home garden and client gardens have been included in numerous local, regional and national garden tours, including those organized by the national Garden Writers Association (GWA), and the Association of Northwest Landscape Designers (ANLD). She is a longtime member and a past board member of the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon (HPSO).
While her primary work revolves around designing gardens, Darcy’s passion for helping home gardeners unlock the secrets of making successful planting combinations led her to found eGardenGo™, an inspirational, fun, and easy-to-use website for gardeners. She also works as a garden communicator, offering lectures, teaching workshops, freelance writing and photography. She was a speaker at the 2016 Northwest Flower and Garden Show, and is scheduled to speak again in 2017.
Located in Portland, Oregon, Darcy shares her home garden, Bloomtown, with her husband, Benjamin, and her two dogs, Monty and Combo.
We maintain a blog here on the Bloomtown site, but our most updated blog content will be found on the eGardenGo blog. In both, you'll find lots of great photos, updates on current projects, and posts about gardens and garden design.
