A Year of Gardens - Day 7

 Today I was able to spend a few hours in an eclectic greenhouse in the company of a fascinating plantswoman. Andrea Henry of Little Marrowbone Farm has been growing succulents for years for local businesses and even winters over tender plants in her greenhouse for a small fee like the lime tree below. The scent of the lime tree blooms was heavenly.

This succulent planter in her greenhouse is about 4' tall. 

 My reason for visiting Little Marrowbone Farm was to pick up succulents for a workshop that I'll be giving on Jan. 15 and 17, both at 2pm, on building a succulent planter using our Crescent Garden Mini Gabrielle bag at the America's Mart in Atlanta

Everyone who comes to participate gets to take home their bag and succulents planted in Grow-Stone.  

Succulent plants, according to Andrea, are the "cocaine of container plantings". What a great thing to say to a pot salesman like me!
