Listen, I know that gift shopping is stressful. I also know that sometimes you want to purchase locally and seasonally, but convenience can win out when things get hectic. No judgement on this end. I like convenience and efficiency as much as anyone - especially if I never have to leave my house.
So, I resolved to make it a bit easier on our beef and bloom lovers this season - and their friends or relatives. Thus we have gift cards. Use them just like would a gift card from every other store. Have questions? We can answer them. Out of town? We can help with that too.
Don’t let holiday shopping make you as grumpy as Chilly is about displaying that mini wreath. Send us a message!

I did some repotting and just potting the other day and I did it in my bathtub due to minus degrees outside 🌱😅 I think it was a smart solution👌🏼. .
What I potted was a Hoya and a small fox tail 🌾
What are doing today? 🍃
Begonia / Begonia pustulata
This begonia falls into the rhizomatous type. These begonias tend to creep along the ground. Their leaves are textured and furry to touch (kind of gross 😜) The leaves are also very sensitive and are damaged by water so these plants must be watered from below.
Too much pretty for one place!
I was so inspired by @thegroundsofalexandria 🌱 I was walking around wide-eyed, in my own wonderland! I have come back with a renewed vision for a house covered in greenery, surrounded by plant babies. 💚
Dancing Maranta 🙆🏻 If you are looking for an easy but beautiful plant, try to find a Maranta! Although they prefer some humidity, they also survive dry soil for a few days, and can stand light and shady spots 🌿😊
It is the third week of #FLFFriday with @alina.fassakhova and we wanted to talk about the beloved Ficus lyrata and our more beloved pets. I noticed there was a lot of contradictory and confusing information regarding Fiddle Leaf Figs being pet-friendly plants. After digging through Google, I found an informative blog comment from Sandra Fleming, a vet, who gave me her blessing to spread the following information about Fiddle Leaf Figs and our animals: "There are many plants that are toxic to pets, but a lot of them only cause oral irritation, increased salivation, and sometimes vomiting or diarrhea. As far as I know, Fiddle Leaf Figs fit into that category. There are, however, some plants that can cause very serious, life-threatening medical issues. One example of this type of plant is the Sago Palm. I have absolutely seen dogs die from eating it. Ingesting only 1-2 seeds can cause severe liver failure and death. I have seen them at our home improvement stores many times and it makes me very angry that they do not come with a warning on the label." So there you have it. If your furry loved one shows an interest in plants, please be extra cautious with your plant purchases. I am incredibly fortunate because my dog, Luna, could care less about the greenery in our home.
