Balcony Gardening

Plants can add privacy and add a design touch all your own to a balcony no matter how large or small.

You can use plants to create some screening between you and the rest of the world without taking up precious floor space.

If you have a balcony, you can introduce trailing foliage in railing and horse trough planters along the railing.  If feasible, fill hanging baskets with cascading foliage and trailing plants, then suspend them from a ceiling or building facade.

All natural coco liners used with wire and metal planters, stands and hanging baskets exhibit a lighter, open design style that fits well into a smaller space while the rich, Continue reading

Plants and Privacy

Plants can be the perfect solution if you want to bring a little privacy to your backyard deck or patio.

Assuming you don’t have a major problem that requires fencing or the long term planting of hedges and screening plants such as evergreen, cypress and arboretum, some strategic planning and gardening may be all you require.

You probably don’t want your deck or patio enclosed on all sides. Perhaps you only want to create a secluded place to relax, or to block out an unwanted object on the perimeter. The main idea is to use plants to create some screening between you and the rest of the world. Adding height, creating corners and using blocking elements can Continue reading

Decorating a Small Space with Plants

Not everyone has a large backyard, a place for a sprawling deck, patio, or room for a vegetable garden or flower beds. But that’s no reason to turn your back on outdoor gardening.

Use some greenery and your condo or apartment balcony, a smaller porch, deck or patio can be transformed into a lush garden, an outdoor retreat or a culinary resource.

Container planting of flowers and foliage in free-standing pots and planters or displayed on decorative plant stands can add color while bringing an extra dimension of design to your space.

With little space on the ground, think about hanging flower baskets overhead and Continue reading

Growing Herbs

Herbs are easy to grow, indoors and out, winter and summer, for decoration, aroma or for cooking. The biggest problem you may face in growing herbs is deciding what you want to grow.

Herb Types
As a gardener, you need to know that herbs are either annual, biennial or perennial. Annuals bloom one season and then die. Biennials live for two seasons, and bloom the second season only. Once established, perennials bloom each season.

Annuals include anise, basil, chervil, coriander, and dill; parsley and caraway are biennials; perennials include chives, fennel, marjoram, mint, tarragon, and thyme.

Herbs for Cooking

Benefits of Coco Planters

Love gardening? Want to decorate your deck, patio, porch or balcony? Think about using all natural coco liners. They make great container liners, particularly for wire and metal planters, stands and hanging baskets. They keep soil in and aid in keeping it moist.

Plus, coco is naturally resistant to insects, bacteria, fungi, mold and diseases. Known for their excellent drainage and aeration properties, coco liners promote visibly better, faster plant growth by rehydrating easily while preventing root rot.

Environmentally-friendly, organic coco fiber liners are made from coconut coir, the substance between the husk and the outer shell of a coconut. Shaped liners are formed naturally, use no glue and maintain their shape when wet.

If it’s aesthetics you’re after, you’ll find the rich, natural color of coconut fiber complements the beauty of any plant. For a different look, porous coco liners also let you grow trailing plants so they emerge from the liner through the sides of the decorative basket.

Consider coco liners if you’re looking for easy, carefree container gardening that’s eco-friendly and a perfect complement to your outdoor decorating.
