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.
