Basil-time!

C LoComment

We forgot to post last week - we have basil in the store now.  This is something we will try to stock throughout the spring/summer months.  Nothing like fresh herbs in a salad or hot dish!  As the weather warms a bit more we will bring in other herbs.

Aloe vera and Haworthia have arrived

C LoComment

After weeks of sourcing out good quality Aloe vera, some finally made the cut!   If you haven't heard - Aloe veras are wonderful air cleaners, easy to care for and can be used for medicinal purposes from healing burns quickly, restoring hair growth, removing skin tags, etc.  

Another plant that we always have in stock are Haworthia.   A very hardy succulent that requires little care and does not get leggy if it doesn't get enough light.   

Hurry in before they run out!

 

So many plants, so little time!

I think I have been a bit obsessed with stocking the store with plants lately.   Plants bring so much life and energy to a home.   People - I do not mean fake plants...read no further if you are a plastic plant lover.  OK, for those who share as much enthusiasm as I do on real, living and breathing plants, I have good news for you!  I will be posting availability when a new shipment of plants come in. This week we have lots of echeverias, succulents, pothos, peace lily, moon cactus(grafted cactus) in stock.  Snake plants are in limited quantities - grab yours before they're gone!

Next week, a new shipment of Aloe vera both in 4 inch and 6 inch pots will be available.  We are also bringing in a fairly new plant called the Asplenium crispy wave fern.  If you have followed the latest rave on air cleaning plants, this is the plant to get to reduce toxins in the air.

Air cleaning plants

C LoComment

Over the years we've  had many requests for air purifying plants.  One of the most sought after plant for this purpose is the Sanseveria, aka, mother's in law tongue or snake plant.  The snake plant is extremely easy to care for.  It's long succulent leaves store a lot of water so it requires minimal watering.  The snake plant also adapts well to all sorts of lighting with the exception of direct sun.  No plants like to be in the direct heat all day.  It is also very insect resistant making it one of the easiest plants to care for.  

Other plants that share similar properties are pothos,  peace lily, spider plants to name a few.  We almost always have these plants stocked in our store, but do call ahead to avoid disappointment. Sometimes we dp run out and may take a few weeks to get new ones in.

Healthy home = Healthy life!  Purify your home with plants that not only look good, but makes you feel good.

Herbs are ready!

Our herb planter has grown considerably since we last posted.  All the herbs are ready to be plucked.   Remember to contribute a small donation to keep this program going in the coming years =)  

Grow your own curly willow

We are giving away remnants of curly willow branches.  Grow your own willow and see them twist and curl into a piece of art.  Remember they grow into massive trees so give them plenty of grow space.

Herbs anyone?

C LoComment

We are trying a new project this year and thought it would be cool to let our customers snip fresh herbs whenever they need them.   Our herb planter has just been freshly planted and in a couple of weeks the herbs will be ready for harvesting!  Does this cost anything you ask?  Pay whatever you feel like paying!  We want to make this a fun and 'savoury' project and everyone should be cooking with fresh herbs!

We have basil, mint (do I hear sangria?  yum!), oregano, dill, lemon balm and will soon be adding rosemary.  Stay tuned for harvest day!
