These stores are only in California and are known for offering free one hour classes on certain Saturdays throughout the year. I took a bunch of notes during the class and today want to share with you what I learned about growing roses.

Making Your Small Garden Look Bigger

at

Happy Sunday! Here is my next collaborative post! I hope you find ideas on making your small garden look bigger below!

Gardens are fantastic. Anyone that’s ever lived in a flat or an apartment will know more than anyone how much you can miss having your own outdoor space. Your garden is your own little bit of nature. A place where you can relax and unwind, enjoy some vitamin D, exercise and dry your washing. Is there anything better than the fresh smell of sheets that have been left to dry outside?

Urban Gardening-Plants for Container Gardening

at

When I think of gardens, I can picture the lush English gardens from those period movies such as Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. I didn’t even know small space gardening was a thing until I got into it. I am still learning the ins and outs of urban gardening but thought I would give you some ideas on plants for container gardening.

Ever since I got serious about gardening, I pretty much have been buying small plants I think are pretty, get a small container and hope to not kill the plant. Right now my garden consists of succulents, some tropical plants, then a small variety of small flowering plants that look like they would grow well in containers.
