Tiny gardens

Gardens don’t have to be big and they don’t have to be outdoors, to prove the point, I have found a couple of interesting new products that I would classify in the ultra- tiny category.

The matchstick garden is a super cute gift idea…or perhaps a takeaway for a green hotel or garden spa property. It is totally customizable and can be printed with your own artwork and message. Each tear off strip is embedded with seeds and can be poked in to dirt and watered to create mini garden.

I found these over at Inhabitat:

JVC recently unveiled a beautiful line of bonsai-laden Kirikabu speakers at this year’s Tokyo Designer’s Week. Created out of eco-friendly plastic, the conceptual series of speakers can be assembled into different shapes, and each contains a small compartment perfect for planting a tiny bonsai tree

A Shamrock (Oxalis) Rainbow

A Shamrock (Oxalis) Rainbow

I’m finding the ever- increasing variety of oxalis  (commonly called Shamrocks or Wood Sorrel) available to gardeners very inspiring. In the last decade (or so) it seems like the color and shape choices have exploded – there is – literally – a whole rainbow of elegant and interesting options.    So, in honor of all…

Snippets: Flora at Tower Hill (And I’ll be Speaking)

Do you have plans this weekend? Why not take a hike outside and gather the makings of beautiful floral arrangement? If you were able to look out my window (at many feet of snow – and with a couple more on the way) – you’d think I was ludicrous for making this suggestion. But if…

Holiday Wreath Inspiration

Wreaths are such ubiquitous holiday decorations, I find that most years I want to rebel against the traditional cliché of it all and just hang nothing… …but then I see beautiful creations like these and suddenly I’m trying to find billy buttons in the middle December.
