Florist plants seeds for fall opening
New flower shop for Hortonville
By Scott Bellile
LuWan Visocky, owner of Foxglove Farms greenhouse east of Stephensville, hopes to open her new downtown Hortonville store The Enchanted Florist by September.
This past winter, Visocky purchased a building at 207 W. Main St. for $14,300, as well as a lot at 203 W. Main St. where in 2015 a building burned down, for $17,300, according to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
The exterior of the store building is mostly finished and work is beginning inside on the flooring, insulation and drywall.
“I have had this vision in my head for years, so to see it actually come to fruition has been a dream for me,” Visocky said.
The business will serve as a downtown combination of sorts of The Enchanted Florist and Foxglove Farms. Visocky will run her shop out of the building year-round and hopes to use the next-door lot for greenhouse and outdoor garden space. She would also like to hold classes.
The Enchanted Florist will sell hanging baskets, native plants, annuals and perennials, along with specialty plants that Visocky says customers will not find elsewhere.
She may also carry other locally made products such as stained glass, iron products and photography.
“I want it to be more than just a floral shop. I want it to be a unique little shop that has something for everybody,” Visocky said.
