Garden Décor DIY-Inspiration Meets Experience

Posted by Green Acres Nursery & Supply on Mar 19, 2016 5:00:06 PM

Social media is an unlimited source of inspiration. It's easy to spend hours on websites such as Pinterest, browsing jaw-droppingly beautiful garden projects which you're just dying to try at home. However, it can be hard to know where to start to get your projects looking as lovely as they do on your screen. 

We're here to help with some simple DIY décor ideas to catch the latest online trends and keep your patio Pinterest-perfect. 

Tantalizing Terrariums

DSC04011-461196-edited.jpgTerrariums are miniature gardens enclosed in glass, and they make beautiful centerpieces for an event or just on display in your home. A few pointers for pulling this project off:

  • Because terrariums are enclosed and lack drainage, watering can be tricky. Try wrapping the root ball of the succulent in coco coir or moss when you "plant" it, then removing it from the container when you water. 
  • Morning sun or indirect light is best, the enclosed space can magnify heat.
  • Layer your sand, rocks, or mulch in the container, and don't forget charcoal, which will absorb any odor caused by excess moisture. 
Choose a theme and let your imagination run wild- any combination of ingredients can be paired to emulate a landscape in miniature. Try sand, glass and shells for a beachy feel. Mulch paired with moss, then accented with tchotchkes can create a whimsical woodsy look. 

The Art of Kokedama

DSC03930-533748-edited-799791-edited.jpgKokedama is a Japanese term which means "moss ball" and its a fast-growing trend in the world of miniature gardening. Basically, it's something which has been "planted" in a ball of moss, which is then wrapped in bonsai mix, layered with more moss, and bound with twine.

Kokedama is a form of bonsai in which you are stunting the plants growth, but creating a beautiful and peculiar work of art which can be suspended to hang or displayed on a pedestal.

Things to consider:

  • Small plants which grow slowly are good choices for kokedama planters, bonsai starters have a wide selection
  • Kokedama have limited root space to sustain them, so avoid situating in harsh conditions such as full sun or reflected heat.
  • Watering will depend on sun exposure, wind and the type of plant. Generally, an indoor fern, such as the one pictured, will need to have its moss ball soaked once per week. If outdoors, mist between waterings. 

 

Up-cycled Container Chic

DSC03941-732504-edited-771301-edited.jpgSurely you've seen planters which are made of unusual recycled objects. This "up-cycling", as it's called, is wonderful for taking things which might have otherwise gone to waste and transforming them into a stylish home for a living thing.  Basic tips for turning what might have become trash into container-gardening treasure:

  • Whenever possible, poke drainage holes in your container. If you can't, be sure to layer charcoal in the bottom, and be cautious of over watering.
  • If planting something which will be hung vertically like the birdcage pictured, use wire to hold the plants in place until their roots grow out enough to anchor them.
  • Succulents are a savvy choice for up-cycled containers because the plants can be divided and nestled into little nooks and crannies. 

These are just a few examples of projects you can accomplish with little time, your personal taste, and a little garden know-how. For recipe cards, and more adorable inspiration, visit us this weekend at our Dig Into Spring Ideas Fair at our new Rocklin location.

The Benefits of the Pomegranate

Pomegranates are native from Iran to Northern India and brought to America by the Spanish Conquistadors. Pomegranates have a long history of lore since they are one of the oldest fruits known to man.  Once thought to symbolize wealth and a long and healthy life, medical studies now show that the juice of the pomegranate contains antioxidants that can offer protection against heart disease, cancer, help lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and help clean the arteries.

 

Fruit & Foliage 

The seeds of the pomegranate are edible.  Tossed on a salad, the seeds add color, crunch and are nutritious!  Pomegranate shrubs and trees planted in a landscape offer beauty and focal points to any yard.  Their beautiful flowers attract hummingbirds and their fall foliage offers breathtaking yellows to rival many fall coloring trees!  Pomegranates are also drought tolerant once established.  Planted in a pot or planted in the ground, pomegranates make an awesome addition to any landscape.

The Summer Thriller, Spiller & Filler- Charming Plants for Containers

Posted by Green Acres Nursery & Supply on May 8, 2013 2:41:00 PM

With spring’s warmer temperatures we are all spending a little more time outside. To make a huge impact with minimal changes to your yard, how about putting together a fabulous pot or planter catered to the style of your home and garden? This addition will help complete the look of your outdoor room.  When we think of summer, the idea of the seasonal planter comes to mind for summertime backyard entertaining-where we can showcase the famous trio of archetype plants: the thriller, the filler and the spiller. Each of these plant archetypes has a special role assigned to it for it’s use within the container and we’ll suggest some great combinations, below.

containers

Terms Defined:

The “thriller” plant is an upright specimen plant that jumps right out and elongates the overall aesthetic of the space. Usually this plant is located at the center of the pot or container, however, if the pot is against a wall, simply use it towards the back of planter for increased “wow factor”! The “thriller” plant might be: a blooming Canna Lily, an Upright Pink Cordyline (pictured to the left), or a year-round plant like the Contorted Filbert (Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick).

The “filler” plant is a mid-level plant useful for covering space and hiding the interior or leggy portions of the thriller plant rising above it. The “filler” plant might be: Santa Barbara Daisy (a great California native) , Diascia (an easy bedding plant from Africa), Hot Lips Salvia (a Bicolor Sage), or Coleus (an annual, native to the West Indies).

containerThe “spiller” plant is used at the outer edge of the planter and closest to the main viewing area of the planter. The “spiller” plant may be: a silver-grey Licorice Plant (pictured to the left and widely used and adaptable), a String-of-Pearls plant (a succulent with long flowing tendrils of green “pearls”), Black Heart Sweet Potato Vine (dark foliage that contrasts beautifully against greens and whites), or Tapien Verbena (vibrant blooms atop graceful foliage).

 

Some favorite “thriller-filler-spiller” planter combinations from our very own Green Acres team:

tropicalsA California Vibrant Combination:
Thriller: Vibrant Canna Lilies (pictured on right) with ‘Sundowner’ or ‘Bronze Baby’ New Zealand Flax
Filler: Mixed Pink and Red Impatients & Variegated Coleus
Spiller: Black Heart Sweet Potato Vine


A Romantic Garden Combination:
Thriller: Purple Fountain Grass or Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick
Filler: Red Cockscomb, Delphinium, Red Chinese Fringe Flower & Brown Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia)
Spiller: Dusty Miller or Licorice Plant & Nasturtium

containers
An Arid Climate Combination:
Thriller: A tall blue-grey Agave or a vibrant yellow and green Striped Yucca
Filler: Globe Thistle (Echinops), Catmint (Nepeta), Agastache, and Flapjacks (succulent pictured to right)
Spiller: String-of-Pearls or Blue Tapien Verbena


A Shade Combination:
Thriller: Variegated Ornamental Ginger, Dark Blue Iris, or Lady Fern
Filler: Sweet Flag Grass and Japanese Painted Fern
Spiller: Coral Bells (dark clumping plant pictured below) with Purple Clover and String-of-Pearls

shade plantsAs always, it’s important to be sure that your planter has drip irrigation or that you’re watering by hand at least every other day on the hot days of summer. You will want your pot to drain properly, so many gardeners place 2-3” of gravel at the bottom. This ensures that the soil doesn’t leach out the bottom. In addition to giving your plants a nice mixture of potting mix or planting mix on top of the 2-3” stone base, you will want to use our E.B. Stone Sure Start Fertilizer to give your plants the best in their transition from nursery pot to home planter. If you have any questions be sure to ask one of our great employees.

Now it’s time to make your own thriller-filler-spiller combination! Feel free to send us photos or post them on our Green Acres Facebook Page.  We'd love to see creative combinations YOU have designed.

The History of Poinsettias

Posted by Green Acres Nursery & Supply on Dec 13, 2012 12:56:00 PM

poinsettias in sacramento

Do you know the history of the poinsettia? In the United States, December 12 is National Poinsettia Day.  

The first poinsettias were brought to the United States by Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, America’s first minister (ambassador) to Mexico between 1825 and 1829. Dr. Poinsett brought the plant to America and raised it in his greenhouses in Charleston, South Carolina. It was named in his honor in 1836. The Latin name is Euphorbia pulcherrima, literally “the most beautiful Euphorbia.” You may know Dr. Poinsett as the founder of the National Institute for the Promotion of Science and the Useful Arts, predecessor of the Smithsonian Institution
Poinsettias in Sacramento
The plant was initially known in the United States as “painted leaf” or “Mexican fire plant” until it eventually was named poinsetta pulcherrima, or “poinsettia,” in honor of of its discoverer, Dr. Poinsett. By the early 1900′s, they were sold as potted plants in California. Many poinsettias are still raised in the state, especially for use as Christmas gifts and decorations. The city of Ventura, California is even known as the Poinsettia City.

If poinsettias aren't already brightening up your home, now is the time to add some holiday color with poinsettias. Green Acres Nursery & Supply carries the highest quality poinsettia flowers in all of Sacramento. Choose from 4", 6" or even 8" sizes.  Did you know that there are many varieties of poinsettias? Although known for their vibrant red color, there are also white, pink and dappled poinsettias. We offer these seasonal beauties in a number of fun varieties like 'Marble', 'Burgundy', 'Ice Crystal', 'Red Glitter' & more.  

poinsettias in sacramento

Taking care of poinsettias at your home is something that can be a little tricky.  If you take the time to purchase a poinsettia for decoration we know you'll want it to last.  As we mentioned before, poinsettias  grew natively in Mexico which has a much warmer climate than Sacramento, so you'll need to protect your poinsettias from cold winds while also avoiding hot or cold drafts.  Also did you know that providing at least 6 hours of indirect sunlight for the poinsettia will actually help the plant retain its vibrant color?  

The best part about poinsettias at Green Acres is that we give you high quality at wonderful prices.  4" Poinsettias are only $4.50, and 6" are $7.50 every day.  Prices and quality you can't beat anywhere else while supplies last.  We invite you to stop by any Green Acres location in Elk Grove, Folsom, Rocklin, Roseville and Sacramento and pick out the most beautiful "painted leaf" that will wow your friends and family this holiday season.
