How does your Garden grow.


There is a nursery rhyme that goes, Mary, Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?    Well every year since I became a home consultant, there has been at a least one or two products dedicated to the garden. I love the gardening products being offered this year from Longaberger.  These products are perfect for anyone who have a baby green thumb to a full fledge container garden on a decked out patio.  If you follow my blog, you know that these products have been featured before, but there are also a couple products that have not been mentioned before, but will be available on sale for purchase at Longaberger at Home.  This is a sale, which is available from 12 Noon –Midnight today only.

Basket Planters
A customer was concerned about the care of these planters two weeks ago.  The answers can be found by going to this post.    There are 4 sizes to the planter (6”, 9”, 12”, and 14”) and the uses are as follows:
The 6” planter can be used to start seeds, herbs, and replanted plants that do not grow as much.   In the non-gardening area, think of the planter to hold items such as utensils, paint brushes (the hole at the bottom can allow water to drip out), markers, beauty brushes, and small knives (blade pointed downward).
The 9” planter the same way as the 6” planter with a little more room for the seeds to grow.  If you want to do an elevation display (as in catering), you can place the planter on a flat tray or if it stands alone, place a small baggie with ice on the inside, and then place a small bowl of dip that fits over the top of the planter.   The ice will keep the dip nice and cool.
The 12” and 14” planters are great for container gardening.   Container gardening is a must if you live in a place where you cannot have big garden.   You can place vegetables such as tomato, eggplant, squash, and zucchini plants, as well as onions in the planters.  Be careful not to overcrowd the plants. 
For the 14” planter, you can place rolled plans for an engineer’s office, or wallpaper rolls inside to organize.
