Last week I was at Cactus and Tropicals to be a judge for a student portfolio review for IIDA. It was fun to see the creative work of the graduating class and chat with design friends.
The surprise bonus of the day was finding out that Cactus and Tropical is more than your average garden center.
I was impressed by the great selection of plants and everything you need to be the best little gardener ever, but the part that had my heart beating a little faster was when I came around a corner and found stacks and stacks of containers.
Since I'm still a wandering nomad I like the idea of being able to pack up my garden when I move so container gardening is the solution for me. I have started a collection of terra cotta pots that have moved with me over the years with a wide array of different growing things from blossoming flowers to edible herbs.
Containers in every color, shape and size, I would be happy to branch out from my terra cotta with some of these colorful options.
Now if I could just keep plants alive...
them out. I think you'll love it too.
