What is going on in the gardening world these days? Take a look and discover something new. This week we're looking at garden-themed home decor, not-so-practical gardening tips and a new emerging trend you'll see more of soon!
Garden Style Home Decor
Get inspired! Check out these garden-themed rugs for children's rooms. Of course, I think adults could get away with some of these choices for their spaces as well. Some of the prints are heavily floral and definitely look best suited for the younger set, but there are some rug designs with a more modern feel. Consider placing a garden-themed rug at your patio door as an extension of your garden from inside out. You're bound to find something unique that fits your home or your children's tastes!
City Living Gardening Tips: Yea or Nay?
This is a sincere post about gardening in a big city, but it doesn't seem entirely practical. In the Pinterest age, this post offers what looks like many great ideas for small-scale gardening, but the artsy factor would probably be harder to reproduce than it looks. For example, creating a potting area in a hanging lamp from your ceiling is definitely cool, and ambitious, but unless you want to buy the advertised product for almost $500, you might want to stick to a more traditional plan. What do you think? Are these selections feasible the any gardener?
Introducing Flower CSAs
Garden/Vegetable CSA have been all the rage the last few years. It's a great way to support local vendors and get seasonal veggies and fruits all at once. You just get them delivered or have to pick up your weekly supply. So why not start doing that for flowers? Apartment Therapy covers a flower CSA in Brooklyn, which runs $200 for an 18-week membership. It might seem pricey at the outset, but if you gorgeous flowers in your home at all times, it seems like a great deal in the long run. In upstate NY, a smaller entrepreneur also recently posted the pick-ups from their flower CSA. If you Google flower CSAs you're likely to find something in your area. If not, get it started! It looks like the trend is catching on!
