Garden Center Safari – #1
Jan 28, 2014 | Love This!
Every month I’ll take you on safari to see what’s interesting at local garden centers.
This month we’re stopping by Lensmires in Plover, WI; Cosentino’s Nursery in Malibu, CA; and Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco, CA.
I’m clearly dreaming of warmer weather when showing this photo taken at Lensmires, in Plover WI. Knowing the type of winter that they’re having, I figured that they will also appreciate a picture that reminds us all that spring is on its way.
These Tillandsia plants blend perfectly with the driftwood that they’re displayed on at Flora Grubb Gardens. I’m jealous that those who live in Northern California can hang these on their porch, patio and terrace year ’round.
Have a seat! This colorful display caught my eye at Flora Grubb Gardens last month. Perhaps this is what prompted my first post about providing sitting areas in the landscape…
When I stopped by Cosentino’s last year I was blown away by the selection of succulents.
The display of odd items planted with succulents made me smile as a walked through this Malibu nursery. As we all know, sometimes we buy plants for eating, sometimes for landscaping, and sometimes just for FUN.
