Spring Shows..........


Spring is here and the virus has vendors parked at home. This too shall pass and gardeners will be ready to venture out and take on all the projects dreamed up over the Winter. Our inventory continues to build as we are taking advantage of the extra down time. Check the schedule tab at the top of the page as we will update it as plans firm up or we get notified of cancellations.

November 2019.........

 Squares and Tubs
 Assorted Hearts
 Squared Bowls
 Assorted Oval Bowls
Smalls

Twenty nineteen was a very busy year. We were booked for shows or classes twenty six weekends this year. At the end of October our show season was over and thankfully our inventory was nearly depleted. The above pictures represent what was built in the month of November not counting our table tops or what my wife had put together. We are looking forward to planting a majority of these containers with succulent combinations. The next three months will be a flurry of pulping, mixing, and molding. Who knows what the pile will look like by the middle of march.

Requests.........




We have been asked more than once for containers or plantings of a religious nature! One of the first things on the to do list was to build a cross mold. We built two, planted one with sempervivums and left one empty. Took the pair to a herb festival in Oklahoma and came home with a smile and no crosses. Looks like we will continue to build the cross shaped containers and fill them with an assorted plantings. 



Hearts have also been popular and have sold well both filled and empty!

Build'em and Fill'em...............




Winter or at least the cold weather seems to be over! It is time to start filling some of our papercrete containers with plant material. We have amassed quite a pile of driftwood, rocks, and other natural materials to incorporate into our combination plantings! So let the fun continue! ☺

Ready to Go........


We have been hard at it building a sizeable inventory to begin the season with. We began building containers last November knowing what we had the most demand for during year. There is no doubt we will be long on certain items and short on others we will not be short on everything!!


It is against our nature to waste anything even the last little bit of recipe left over as we build larger projects. That last little bit is turned into what we call 'smalls'. The little containers are always popular when filled with succulents. They become an easy to care for plant arrangements. Many are purchased as gifts others are added to customers succulent collections.


My wife's papercrete hands creations were a big hit last season. They do take extra time to build and finish so she began in earnest to build a sufficient supply. Looks like I will have plenty to fill with hens & chicks this year. Oh what fun! 


It was our intention to have forty shells ready to sell this season. As we were building our inventory a special order was submitted for thirty five shells plus another eighty five containers to be delivered in early March. What a blessing to be instantly behind on production! That order is finished and ready to be loaded on the truck.

Crevice Gardens in Papercrete Troughs..........




Show season has finally slowed down enough to allow me to experiment with new ideas. This is my version of a crevice garden using a papercrete trough and papercrete crevice rocks. The trough is filled with sempervivums and sedums. I will build a few more and see what customers have to say about them. Hope they like these little gardens as much as I had fun building them.
