Urban Flowers: Creating abundance in a small city garden
Urban Flowers: Creating abundance in a small city
Creating colour and interest in a small urban garden by growing a range of flowers and other decorative plants brings with it many rewards. Carolyn Dunster shows you what to grow and how to use your own blooms, leaves and berries in a range of indoor displays and hand-tied bouquets. Locally-grown flowers in season is a significant and welcome trend in floristry, and just as eating a tasteless strawberry in December pricks our consciences, so too does purchasing a bouquet of tulips in September, however stunning they may be to look at. The most local, seasonal flowers, which are the most satisfying to give and to display, are the ones you have grown yourself. Carolyn Dunster shows you how to do this in the smallest of spaces.

8" Self Watering + Self Aerating High Drainage Deep Reservoir Round Planter Pot Prevents Mold, Root Rot & Soil Fungus in Herbs, Succulents, for Indoor & Outdoor & Windowsill Gardens (Green)
8" Self Watering + Self Aerating High Drainage
SELF-WATERING, 2-WEEKS+ DEEP RESERVOIR: No more troublesome wicks that clog and stop working. Patented design integrates self-watering features into the body of the planter. Hollow legs reach down to the reservoir and help the soil draw moisture naturally while lifting your plant above the water, keeping its delicate root system from being constantly flooded, minimizing upkeep while eliminating common problems associated with other planters and with over-watering. SELF-AERATING, PREVENT MOLD & FUNGUS: Stop poking holes in your soil. Integrated into the body of the planter are additional large open slats on the bottom that are designed to maintain air circulation through the soil, preventing mold and fungus commonly found with other self-watering planters. Keep your plants healthy, and your home healthy as well. EASY TO FILL, NO OVERFLOW: Each planter comes with an easy to use clip-on attachment for easy watering. Fill up the deep reservoir directly instead of pouring through the planter & risking an overflow. Leave it on, or use when needed to maintain a sleek modern look. MINDS YOUR FLOOR: The reservoir dish is designed with studs on the bottom to lift the entire planter away from your floor and to prevent circular water stains typical of other flat-bottomed planters.
