On With The Show!
Here is the breakdown of the show and some of our super star guests and contributors!
Garden Show Extravaganza!
Tour a "succulent pavillion" at the San Francisco Flower and Garden show with garden author Debra Lee Baldwin of "Succulent Container Gardens."
Landscape designer, Mary Te Selle's award winning garden, "Twice Upon a Treehouse" is featured on the Garden World Report show.
I was inspired so much by Te Selle's garden that I created my own original "muffin pan planter" for succulents.
I was in the "repurpose mood!"
Te Selle's garden is made from many recycled and repurposed materials including the focal point tree house constructed of driftwood, used wood, pylons and old metal.
A pond with edible and water plants is also included.
This garden, designed by Andrea Hurd of Mariposa Gardening was awarded by Sunset Magazine the "Western Living Award."
The entertainer's paradise is complete with edible garden, raised deck patio, gray water filtration system and wetland garden.
Gorgeous and functional!
