Kokedama Workshop – Make & Take
With Treasure Smith
Create a lush addition to your indoor plant collection. In this workshop, Treasure Smith will lead you - step by step - through the artful process of crafting your own beautiful Kokedama moss ball garden to take home.
Kokedama is a traditional Japanese bonsai technique where the plant’s roots are encased in a soil and sphagnum moss ball held together with sheet moss and bound with string. Also called “string gardens”, Kokedama can be hung, or placed in a decorative container.
It’s fun and easy! The workshop fee covers the instruction and all materials needed to design your Kokedama - your choice of a 2-4” tropical plant, soil, sphagnum & sheet moss, string, and macramé hanger. Reserve your spot on Eventbrite. $24.99 plus tax. Limited to 10 participants.
This workshop kicks off National Indoor Plant Week, Sept. 15-21 The oxygen doesn't arrive until the plants do!

| Close Your Eyes and Wander|
|FROM WILMA: |
“A gardener is never shut out from his garden, wherever he may be. Though the city may close about him, he can still wander in his garden, does he but close his eyes.” - Beverley Nichols
This quote reminds me a conversation I recently had with a gentlemen who was choosing plants for the garden at his Asheville home. His career in the entertainment business takes him around the globe. He made the comment that he could be in a far-away city and his thoughts would go back to his garden and especially to his favorite plants - conifers.
Matt and Bret spent time in July touring nurseries in Oregon where many species and cultivars of conifers and other plants are grown. Shipments of some of these plants are beginning to arrive at the Garden Center. Fall is a great time to add trees, shrubs, and perennials to your landscape!

|Beauty is a well placed line!|
One of the most important foundations of any garden is the bed line. It creates the pleasing curves and the call and response of the positive and negative spaces between those lines.
As fall approaches, the weeds are creeping into the once well placed lines leaving a hazy hint of the original sweeping curves in my garden...It is time to bring out my trusty spade and trench my bed lines!
What is a trenched bed edge? It is a simple "V" dug into the ground at the edge of the bed that keeps the mulch in and grass out.
DIY: First, refresh your original bed line, and then turn around and cut a second line that is 3-4" back from your original line and points diagonally toward your original line, creating a "v" shape. Remove the "v" shaped debris from the middle and Voila!… a perfectly edged bed. Your garden is now ready for fall leaf removal and fresh mulch.
