If you’re not done with your Christmas shopping (and if you are, then tell us your magical secrets, please??) we have a great idea for you: Hanging Water Gardens™. We know what it feels like to have that list of names – your family and friends who aren’t the easiest to shop for. What do you get them? Something they will like, but something that won’t become clutter one day. You want to give them something useful and beautiful. Something that will bring them joy every time they look at it.

Vermont Nature Creations - The Life of Winter

Our handcrafted Hanging Water Gardens™ are perfect for Christmas gifts. No green thumb is required to make these gardens grow. Just add water and you’re good to go! Simple, natural, and gorgeous – that summarizes our Hanging Water Gardens™ in a few words.

On top of all this, you want to be the coolest gift-giver around, right? But how exactly do you achieve this? You gift something handcrafted and unique – something that your family and friends have never seen before. They’ll be saying things like, “Oh my gosh, where did you find this?” The only downfall here is that everyone will expect great things of you come next Christmas. What do you do then? Buy them another Hanging Water Garden, of course! Look at us, taking care of your Christmas shopping a year in advance.

Hanging Water Gardens™ - Forget The Frost

We cut a variety of ivy and Wandering Jew plants clippings and send them off with each order. Talk about a festive Christmas gift! How many people unwrap a bundle of fresh green life on Christmas morning? (Well – your family and friends, to name a few.) However, if you don’t want us to ship the plants, that’s totally okay too! If you don’t want to babysit the plant clippings until December 25th, then you can select “plant certificate” at the checkout. You or the lucky recipient will then send us an email/phone call to redeem her certificate and we will ship out beautiful plants for her Hanging Water Garden™, no charge. We want everyone to be happy and relaxed this holiday. There’s enough stress going on as it is!

Go ahead – blow their socks off with one of our stunning Hanging Water Gardens™. The hardest part is choosing the perfect design – but that’s also the fun part! Wait for the box to show up on your doorstep like in all those magical Christmas movies and get ready to kick back and relax this holiday. Oh and did we mention that you should stuff one under the tree addressed to you, too? You won’t regret it.

We’ve got it—you want to gift something this Valentine’s Day that isn’t over-priced, short-lived, and well…just plain boring. You want to gift something that reflects your love. That being said, we’re guessing that flowers or chocolates aren’t really what you’re aiming for. Flowers die after a week or two, but your love lasts forever, right? And chocolates will be quickly eaten and will probably induce some guilt (because chocolate.) Don’t let your love be forgotten! Give something that will always be there, looking beautiful. Aw, how sweet right? We’re getting emotional over here.

So toss those ideas of truffles and bouquets and instead get something that will last all year long—not just for a couple of weeks. Hanging Water Gardens are easy to care for (because nobody wants a long list of chores on Valentine’s Day, either.) They make perfect love gifts. Give the kind of love that lasts and pick out one of our Hanging Water Gardens today.

Unexpectedly Perfect Christmas Gifts

Hanging Water Gardenswintery_red_collage_withframe

hey, we’ve got a great idea. 

Are you all done with your Christmas shopping? We know, it’s kind of a “NOOO” moment (in more ways than one) because suddenly you remember that there are only a few weeks till Christmas and you have no idea what to get for your nephew and his fiancé, your sister in law, (who claims she doesn’t expect anything from you) your Aunt Sylvia, (who always gets her Christmas shopping done wayyy ahead of time) and most importantly – your mom! We know the feeling of watching that itchy little cluster of names gradually nudge down the Christmas shopping list, because you’re completely dry of ideas. Which is why we want to help.

ditch the holiday distress!

 Look no further. We’ve been told (an insane amount of times) that our Hanging Water Gardens make brilliant Christmas gifts – for anyone on your list. For green thumbs and black thumbs alike! It’s not magic – all you need is water. Care-free, simplistic and knock-out gorgeous – that kind of sums our handcrafted gardens in a few words. They’re all super unique and totally unexpected. It’s going to look fantastic in your nephew’s new house, your sister-in-law will never in a million years expect it, your Aunt Sylvia will be shocked that she’s never seen them before, and your mom – well let’s just put it simply – she’ll hang it up in her kitchen window and she’ll adore it.

oh, cool they come with plants!

That’s right folks! In a bag like a fish. Seriously – we cut a nice variety of fresh plant clippings (green ivy! variegated ivy! wandering jew! huzzah!) right here in our little shop. Then we pack them up with every order and ship them straight out to you. Talk about a festive Christmas gift! How many people do you think are going to get something so ridiculously lively, bright and beautiful this holiday? That’s right – you’re da bomb.

oh shoot – they come with plants.

 Hey hey hey wait! Before you run away, let us explain. We get it – Christmas is still a few weeks away. Not to worry. If you don’t want to babysit those plants until December 25th, then we’ll just send you a handy little plant certificate along with your Hanging Water Garden – so when your Aunt Sylvia is ready for her plants, she just sends us an email/phone call to tell us that she has a certificate, and we’ll ship out some beautiful plants for her Water Garden, no charge. So you know what that means — you don’t have to worry about a thing! We want you, your family and your plants to all be happy this holiday.

so what are you waiting for?

 You know you have those last few names on your Christmas list… don’t deny it. So go ahead – blow their socks off with one of our stunning Hanging Water Gardens. Effortless style, yo! The hardest part is picking out which design you like – there are so many to choose from. Then you’ll just let us know whether you want live plants or a certificate for live plants – and that’s it! Wait for the box to show up on your doorstep like in all those magical Christmas movies and get ready to kick back and relax this holiday. Aunt Sylvia will be so impressed. Oh and did we mention that you should stuff one under the tree addressed to you, too? Love yourself! It’s a thing, people. Do it.  wintery_stainglass_collage_withframe

After a too-long winter, its safe to say that we are all more than ready to jump into spring. We’re craving the smell of melting snow and warm, damp earth. We are eager for the sign of fresh new flower-buds coming out of their winter hidings.

In fact, that’s one of our favorite things about the flower show season: even if there is still snow on the ground outside, and the cold north wind is still blowing away, there is a glorious little escape to something a little brighter and greener. (Thank goodness.)

What better way to beat cabin fever than to get out there and share some of our fresh new designs and ideas with you guys. Flower shows are amazing springboards for gardeners and green-thumbists. We always look forward to being able to chat with friends and supporters about new ways to get creative with art and growing.

So count this as a formal invitation to escape the cold (for a bit anyway) and come see us! We would love it if you stopped by and said hi. Check out our schedule below and see if we’re going to be near you.

Love is about giving, and showing those who are close to you just how much you care about them. Love is caring about someone more than you care about yourself, and putting others first. It’s something that grows and blooms and transforms us.

That’s the inspiration behind our heart design. The shape is vintage, and it is one of our collection’s classics.
Valentine’s day is a bright spot in the chilly monotony of the long winter months. Its a beautiful day to show those around you just how much they mean to you and that they create a positive impact in your life.
We tailor our designs to be bearers of good, life-filled energy. When you are aware that you have friends and family in your life who are sources of positive energy for you, we believe its a beautiful thing to be able to give back.

Giving flowers is practically an ancient idea– we just made it better. Giving a hanging water garden means giving a gift that, like love, keeps growing and blooming and making the world a brighter place.
Be sure to stop by and check out our newly revamped website. You can browse our entire collection there.
Thank you so much for the amazing support in 2014! We love and appreciate each and every one of you. Namaste.

You don’t need to go to a greenhouse to find the perfect plant combinations to make your hanging water garden look gorgeous. Just check your backyard! Here’s what we found in our backyard. Purple and green Basil, coleus and mint (which can be found growing wild in many yards this summer) are some of our favorites for rooting. Plus, they look perfect as a vase combination. We grabbed a 4-tier design and mixed it up with our fresh cuttings (which, by the way, already have roots only a few days later!), along with a few spider babies- cut from potted spider plants- ivy and yellow beads. The bright mix of colors look perfect in our sun room. Be sure to look for special cuttings in your yard before the summer is over.
