RE-Thinking Container Gardens

mini home garden

You know, most people think of something else when we talk about container gardening.  Made from living plants this creation by John Millman is an extraordinary work of craftsmanship and design.  I think every garden needs one! (especially mine)

Plant List:

moss from the side of a building

echeveria

hens&chicks

weeping rosemary

creeping thyme

a bonsai tree

dwarf mondo grass

kingsville boxwood

Combine creatively with black fine sand, rocks, little bamboo sticks, tiny pots, and a (hypertufa?) house.

Before & After: A Gorgeous Chicagoland Makeover

  When I saw the photo of this barren, construction ridden side yard, I knew the remodel was going to be fantastic. It seemed to be the perfect length for a new path, brought to life by ornamental trees and a leafy perennials. I clicked the photo and was linked to the website of a…

Kochia Containers?

After coming across this image on Pinterest with the note “Kochia, the summer pot plant in India” — I had questions. First — what is Kochia (never heard of it, have you?). Second – How do I grow this?  Clearly it is spectacular in that it looks like some sort of highly touchable by-product of…
