Fall Gardening Tips, Dried Flowers
Garden centers all over town are having sales right now, and if you need some tips about planting in the fall, I recommend checking out this interview with Tara Heibel (also, check out her interview with us about modern exterior space planning), the owner of SproutHome. If you are not in the market for planting and are frankly sick of watering your flowers and feel that the only redeeming quality of winter is that those darn plants will finally give you a rest, check out the shop’s selection of dried flowers. The beauty of these formerly flourishing fleurs is that you don’t have to nurture them at all, and they still look awesome. Bunches are $9.50.
