Happy Holidays

Since July I’ve been tracking poinsettias from behind a camera lens at West Coast Gardens. These festive plants, that we use to brighten our spaces for the Holidays have had a long journey. From planting to perfection – this is your poinsettia’s story. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from West Coast Gardens and from me!

West Coast Gardens

DSC_0913This spring I’ve been producing videos, taking photos and writing articles for a nursery, garden and lifestyle store near White Rock called West Coast Gardens.

Living in the city I often forget how sublime the drive through the lower mainland can be and how close to agriculture we are. When I arrive it’s to a magical place where the air could be bottled and sold – it’s really that fragrant.

While working there I’ve been gleaning wisdom from expert gardeners on topics like, Drought Resistant Plants, Growing Tomatoes and (coming soon) Plants for Pollinators and sharing it on the The West Coast Gardens Blog.

The most fun projects for me have been making videos of planter builds and about garden care. It’s hard to choose a favourite video, but The Waltz of the Hanging Baskets seems to be getting the most votes. You can see them all on West Coast Gardens’ Vimeo page.

 

 

Sweet Succulents

Isn’t this succulent planter sweet? Another little video “How To” video for West Coast Gardens.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter from myself and from West Coast Gardens! I’ve started to do some feature writing and videos for this lovely greenhouse and garden store. It’s a beautiful destination just outside of White Rock. The staff is so kind, friendly and knowledgeable you are sure to find perfect plants no matter what you are looking for. What I really love about West Coast Gardens is their focus on Education – take a look at their upcoming classes. You might see me there!
