Uncommon gift ideas for the botanical lover

I partnered up with UncommonGoods to show some fabulous uncommon gift ideas for the botanical lover. The holidays are almost here and UncommonGoods has a lovely array of unique Christmas gifts to explore here. Naturally, when thinking of things a botanical lover would enjoy, I found intriguing items from the garden section here.  

First up, I chose the vertical wall planter. I enjoyed picking out plants to tuck into the modern vessels. It's great that the vessels are attached with large magnets so you can easily remove them for watering and place them back up when done or to change up the design of the garden. What's also cool is that they can be hung on a fridge or a filing cabinet. I placed it in my little office corner which is now much more enticing for me to work on billing and my on-line holiday shopping with my own little vertical garden around me.

Next, these wall dot bud vases are a fun way to easily add a pop of botanical goodness to any room. I added them to my girls' room. They have a sleek modern feel but when paired with the preserved ferns, the modern turns delicate. They also hold water so I am excited to switch them out for fresh flowers once in a while if our garden is blooming or if we see a gorgeous bunch of flowers at the market.
Last, I picked the moss terrarium bottle. Guys are kind of hard to buy for, right? This would be wonderful for their desk or windowsill. The moss comes dormant but you soak it in water and then place it in the upcycled wine bottle and it begins to green and wake up! There are many other unique gift ideas for guys, check them out here.

fall container plantings part II

A few final pictures of some of the autumn container plantings we did this season.

We picked out new triple ball topiaries for these front door containers that I love and the wrapping of the bittersweet berries around them seems to boldly state rustic fall:

These next plantings were for an interior designer's home. I loved using the eclectic mix of plants to meet the eclectic mix of pots.  I am delighted with how they turned out:
a head of croton plant, bittersweet berries, ornamental pepper, kale and kalanchoe plant:
This client wanted a simple English garden classic fall feel. Variegated Ivy, deep heuchera and ornamental plum pepper for the autumn season containers:
A hardy succulent centerpiece I planted in the summer was still going strong strong in the cooler outdoor temperatures at a clients home:
and last, a classic fall container of wheat grasses, kale, ornamental peppers, hardy fall mums, ivy and bittersweet berries.
