Terrarium Fever in Chicago

Paul Munro and Martha Brummett designed these little gardens that can sit or hang anywhere in your home. Enjoy a little green while sitting at your work desk. Trinkets such as doll heads or cars can make a great addition to any planting. Bring in your container or use one of ours. The possibilities are endless in terrarium making. You can choose from a wet or a dry planting, with either ferns or succulents.

Do you see the nails?

How about the doll head?

Cloony Ranunculus and Flowering Tulip Magnolia

Branches can be a bit intimidating at times but, if you snip a bit here and there; out comes a great focal point. They tend to be a bit higher in price but if you get one stem and break it apart it can be rather cost effective. It is also a bonus since the branches last for a while. They are also exciting to watch them open up.

Flowers For Your Sweethearts

We have been processing boxes and boxes for you! Hope You can at least stop in to see our collection! It is rather stunning. We received blush lilacs yesterday that smelled like the heavens. We also did receive a shipment of poppies. We already used all of the flowering tulip magnolia, hurry our flowers are inspiring. 

 This is the pink table which is filled with hydrangeas, victorian spray roses, callas, veronica and much more. 

 Our tulips are going quick, here is an example of the abundance they can bring to an arrangement. The double and single tulips are combined with garden roses, helleborus in black beauty, blush lilac, kangaroo paw and leucothoe.

 The yellow cloony ranunculus came blushing bright red. We don't know maybe they are crazed by the gerberas next to them. 

Maybe you would like more of a modern design for that mod lover in your life. Try something with flowering branches, garden roses and privet. We have just a few more of these thin vases left!

Quince thank you for showing your flowers, we have so much admiration for you.

These areshelves are 'old news' to us but, pack full with so much more new stuff than pictured above. 

 Paperwhites with orange centers never hurt anyone. 

 Monochromatic arrangements can really help other things around it stand out. 

The infamous echeveria that are scattered around the store are:

1. Super cute.
2. Affordable.
3. Easy to take care.
4. Shippable!

One of these things is not like the other! It is the amazing orange flower in the middle. Poppies have been around for ages. Used for many different things, such as but not limited to pollination, opium, remembrance, and for their beauty. Now we are not Matthew Berkowitz but, we do have 250 poppies coming in for your enjoyment. So we recommend stopping in to check them out.  There is nothing like a crumpled up bud which opens into the colors of a techno festival! 

Wish our poppies some luck, they have a long journey. They cross the sea and then they meet customs. Trust us, you will be speechless if you do get to see them.
