Wintertime Gardens...........

Building miniature gardens in the off season (February) is always a struggle for me. The gardens always seemed incomplete or barren since we have little in suitable material here at the nursery for groundcover or a grass substitute. Today I walked by a bucket full of moss chunks my wife had gathered and decided to use the moss as a grass substitute. It will work until I have some perennial plant material breaking dormancy and available for use. The garden was built for a client that needed an eye catcher to add to their Lawn & Garden Show booth. I was truly pleased with the final product built in one of my signature papercrete containers.

Another garden built after the fact!
