1. Freshcut Downtown
Melanie Bernadsky was bitten by the flower bug at a young age, leading her and her family to purchase a local franchise in 1994. What was started by Melanie’s love of flowers eventually grew into a family business, with her sister Monica joining the team. In 2010, the shop left the franchise to become Freshcut Downtown, a local favourite for beautiful flower creations and creative workshops including the very popular Beer and Botany series, now brought for the first time to the Winnipeg Home + Garden Show. Sip on samples of beer and take home your own terrarium complete with bowl, rocks, social, and three plants.
