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
|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!
