Where Does Your Garden Grow?

From dressy boxwoods to perfect peonies, there are so many ways to add a touch of green (and pink, and lilac and…) to your lawn, patio, or even that eeny weeny balcony attached to your urban nest.

No outdoor space to plant?

Try a window box or add some fresh flowers to your living room in a sunny pot, like the ones I spotted over at Anthropologie. They also sell this great pot with basins around it called the Strawberry Pot. It’s perfect for indoors because you can plant something pretty in the center and plant herbs and vines in the basins.

Another way to enjoy an indoor garden is to find something to display your garden on the wall, like this rouen plant holder (I love it in sage). Pretty and simple!

Helpful websites:

Windowbox – Great selection of windowboxes and other garden items.
Grandin Road – Lots of pretty coir mats and Savannah planters (above).
Ballard Designs – Their plaques are beautiful to mount over a door. I love the monogrammed palais plaque (shown above) don’t you? Their garden haute couture gloves and clogs (below) are another favorite.
