Create season long color in your landscape with the help of perennials.
As the world outside our windows turns cold and white, it’s always comforting and healthy to add a little ‘green’ to our indoor spaces. When you choose your plants wisely by matching a plant’s needs with its environment, you will instantly grow a green thumb—and a more livable office, kitchen or bathroom. Fresh plants are always beautiful to look at but more importantly, their presence will improve the air quality in your home. Why not make a New Year’s resolution to give these low-maintenance plants a try? Perfect for the winter home and classics for a reason!
Get the most out of the holiday plants you give, receive or purchase for your own enjoyment. When properly transported, tended and displayed they can provide weeks of beauty and enjoyment throughout the holidays and beyond.
With the new fall season, I always look at the garden with some trepidation—whether it is the mountainous drifts of shifting leaves that need to be raked or the ghostly-looking mushrooms that spring up overnight in the dew-laden soil. With Halloween just around the corner and winter breathing down my neck, the garden can become a pretty scary place as the winds turn cold and sweet children become bloodsucking vampires in the blink of an eye. A garden paradise starts to reveal its dark side when plants disguise themselves as snakes and mutant gourds reign.
