Floral designer Clover Chadwick caught our attention last year when she planted a clever ‘tire garden’ outside of her Jefferson Boulevard workshop, Dandelion Ranch.

On Saturday, Chadwick and the Dandelion Ranch staff will host a pop-up shop at the Beverly Boulevard West Elm. The event is part of nationwide pop-up flower shops hosted by the Brooklyn-based retailer.


The florists will be selling single stems as well as floral arrangements beginning at $10. They also will offer advice on creating your own arrangements at home, such as the design at right.

Customers can buy vases from West Elm or Dandelion Ranch, which is known for using unusual containers. In the past, Chadwick has repurposed box springs and tool boxes, among other things.

The flower shops will take place on three consecutive Saturdays: April 28, May 5 and May 12. Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 8366 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles; (323) 782-9672.
