Outside-Inside Style: Succulent Container Trough

Outside-Inside Style: Succulent Container Trough

Suc­cu­lents are a great way to add color and tex­ture indoors– espe­cially for the ‘house­plant impaired’! How­ever, best results are achieved when you fol­low some basic cul­ti­va­tion requirements!

Seed Season!

Seed Season!

Win­ter may be time off from actively gar­den­ing but it’s a great time of year for gar­den­ers! When the seed cat­a­logs start arriv­ing in the mail I feel like a kid all over again, drool­ing over the hol­i­day “Sears Wish­book”.  Each cat­a­log holds the promise of the ‘best gar­den ever’ if I can just pick   Continue…

Hanging Air Plant Terarrium

I’ll admit that I’m really NOT a house­plant per­son.  Not only do I tend to kill them from benign neglect, I also just don’t like the way the take over things (think of the clas­sic Philo­den­dron). You’ve seen this guy, right?  All stretched out 6 feet long and held up by thumb tacks as it   Continue…

Glover Nursery Garden

Glover Nursery Garden

Hav­ing lived for a time in the Pacific North­west, I got spoiled.  There are so many lovely nurs­eries there and most of them sport dis­play gar­dens.  Heaven on earth!  Sadly, most nurs­eries here in Utah aren’t set up the same way– but there are a few! One such nurs­ery is Glover located in West Jor­dan.  It’s   Continue…

Plantation Shutter Planter Tutorial

Oth­er­wise known as a ‘Plant’ation Pri­vacy Screen. Like many of you, I saw the orig­i­nal idea for this project in Sun­set Mag­a­zine, though I am sure the designer who cre­ated it was not the first to do this, she cer­tainly did it up beau­ti­ful! The Sun­set Mag­a­zine ver­sion fea­tured a gor­geous project com­pleted by San   Continue…

The 1st annual Gala Fundraiser event was held on Sat­ur­day night for Con­ser­va­tion Gar­den Park and it seems to have been quite a suc­cess­ful event.  I am rather relieved it’s over as I par­tic­i­pated in sev­eral capac­i­ties and I’m plum wore out!  Through my ‘reg­u­lar gig’, I helped plan and man­age the event.  Through my   Continue…

Succulent Living Wreaths

I am very for­tu­nate to work for an awe­some gar­den where they let me explore all kinds of inter­est­ing plant­ing ideas.  We have our very first fundrais­ing gala event com­ing up in a few weeks and I’ve been hard at work cre­at­ing some cool gar­den art pieces for the auc­tion (which I’ll share in a   Continue…

On Sat­ur­day, April 30th, 2011 the DIY Land­scape Cen­ter will be cel­e­brat­ing their Grand Open­ing by host­ing a ‘pot party’.  Okay, they told me not to call it that but the name is sort of funny!

WHEW! The Salt Lake Tri­bune Spring Home and Gar­den Fes­ti­val (could they make that name any longer?) is finally over!  It was a great show this year though not as ‘splashy’ as last year’s show.  The land­scape indus­try in gen­eral is endur­ing the most dif­fi­cult finan­cial times EVER so it’s not sur­pris­ing that the exhibits,   Continue…
