Dear Friends,

I invite you to watch my gardening segment on the Hallmark Channel show, "Home & Family" airing on Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013 at 10AM EST.

Have you ever wanted to make a "string garden" but didn't know how to do it?

I'll be demonstrating the basics on the show and writing a step by step blog post later this week for you to enjoy.


String gardens are "no-container" hanging plants and are also known as "kokedama" planting arragements.

These unique hanging plants are expensive when bought but very inexpensive to make!


Set your recorders for the "Home & Family" show, and if you like what you see, please post a comment on the Hallmark Channel discussion forum!

Check your local listings for broadcast time in your area.

  1. Hi Lauren,

    Thanks for your question. THere is a soil called, “akadema” which has the correct clay-like properties and is used in bonsai. I used clay soil from my yard and although never recommend soil from the yard, it works in this project.


    Make sure your soil is disease-free.



  2. Hi Shirley-

    I am in the process of learning how to make kokedama.  I'm having a hard time finding the right soils, and on the show you say you used clay soil. Where did you get "clay soil"? Is it a brand?

    I want to demonstrate kokedama to my garden club in June. I think it's very neat looking!


    LOVE your ideas!
