thepopshopnyc asked: Do you sell sod or grass seeds?
no sod, plenty seeds and seeding options!
Big re-up in house plant world. Judging by the number of people who gleefully descended upon us the moment these arrived, I’m thinking you guys were craving some of this:
Well, this is the best thing I’ve seen all day.
Well, that’s one way to use excess Opuntia pads …
hannahbernhardt asked: Are you guys selling Christmas trees? And stands? And Christmas tree lights? Thanks!
yes. yes. yes. and you’re welcome!
Seeing how we might get hit by a hurricane in a few days, I thought I’d share some favorite things from the garden center. Wild wind and rain might smash some of these down and then you’d never know what you missed! You’re welcome.
The deep blue flower is Aconitum, commonly known as Monkshood (and quite poisonous) with it’s last few flowers hanging on. I like it’s thick, toothy foliage and structure as much as the blooms. Behind it is Miscanthus ‘Purpurascens’, which has transformed from having deep green foliage, to purple, maroon and gold before going dormant for the winter, leaving wispy seed heads and straw colored blades. It’s a perfect backdrop for the still vibrant Aconitum.
The twinkly blooms up front belong to Agastache ‘Pink Haze’, a blooming machine if I ever saw one.It”s been blooming since mid summer, without a break. Smells good too! In back is a purple smoke tree (Cotinus coggyria-I forget which variety this guy is). The mum on the left picks up on the smoke tree’s fall tones. Purple smoke and pink haze, even their names go together.
Some Redbor Kale (edible!), a red switchgrass (Panicum) and more of that Miscanthus from the previous photo.
This combo was inspired by an image I found on Pinterest. I knew I had the right palette of plants on hand to recreate the colors and textures, and I had fun scaling the look down to fit a window box. Every plant in the combo is a perennial, evergreen or semi-evergreen, with the exception of the coleus (olive and purple leaf on right, in back). When the coleus dies, and ‘Rattlesnake Master’ (Eryngium yuccifolium, the spiky blue foliage , in the center, with globe flowers) goes dormant, I’ll probably replace them with some interesting twigs, like redtwig dogwood, or curly willow, to maintain height and color. Or I might use any old branches and spray paint them. The grasses will hang in there, even if they turn brown they’ll reflect the changing of the seasons and add texture. The boxwood in back will provide some green. A few pinecones can fill in around the bottom, and this little box will stay pretty right up until spring.
Some bulbs can be planted among the other plants, to give a you a nice zap of spring color until the perennials fill in again. At some point you may have to repot the perennials, or divide them (more plants!) to keep them happy in this container.
Stay safe everyone! Remember last October?
