Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary…

Where does your garden grow?  Rumor has it urban garden design was big at Maison & Objet last month with many vendors playing off of Patrick Blanc‘s popular vertical gardens with creative flair.  Not only did companies incorporate every day accessories such as mirrors into their designs…

It seems that there’s no limit as to where you can grow a garden these days.  Plants are being used as art on a wall…

    Great post! When you live in an apartment, it’s easy to forget about plant upkeep and garden tending.

    I try to liven up the place by keeping a small fresh herb garden (great for cooking!) and at least one plant. Especially in the winter it really makes a difference.

    I love the recycled glass terrarium pictured, I definitely want to try something like that. :)
