This Weekend! Horticulture for the Urban Home

This weekend is the bi-annual plant sale at the Desert Botanical Garden here in Phoenix! Your city’s Botanical Garden is a great place to pick up plants for the home that have a better start than those you might find at a chain like Home Depot.

My favorite plants for the urban home are succulents. Low maintenance, dramatic, hard to kill and strong lined design– these babies are perfect on a balcony or in a pot in the kitchen.

Pick some plants up this weekend or at the sale the first weekend in April!

This book by Debra Lee Baldwin  great inspiration for small space or grand patios.
