Woman behind Everything Gardening still in business

When I did a blog post a few months ago about an eatery and market called FOODĒ going into the space at 1006 C&D Caroline St. in downtown Fredericksburg, one reader posed the question “What happened to Everything Gardening?” Jane Guerin opened that store at 1006-C Caroline St. in May 2006, as we wrote about here. Guerin told me today that she closed the shop at the end of July due to a weak retail environment. She also wanted to concentrate on her wedding flower and custom floral design business, which she now runs by appointment only out of an office at 802 Princess Anne St.

As for FOODĒ, owners Beth Black and Joy Crump are hoping to host a “soft opening” Dec. 4. They’ve met with some setbacks while renovating the space into a market and eatery, but are hopeful that most of the work is now done and that they’ll be open in a little more than a week.
