Indoor GardeningSimple Gift Ideas

The gift giving season is here.  Try making one of these easy gifts for a teacher, co-worker or neighbor. Add a pretty ribbon and a card, and these are good to go!

The ever-popular paperwhite is an easy choice for a homemade gift. Try planting one in a gravel-filled jam jar, coffee mug or vase.  Instruct the recipient to just add water. Wrap with a pretty bow and a little sprig of greenery.

Mini Air Plant Terrarium:

Use any clean vase, wine glass or jar and fill part way with clean gravel, sand or pretty rocks. Add some decorative elements like an interesting rock, moss, shell or a small ornament and add one or more air plants to the scene.  Add some ribbon and a gift tag and it will be ready for giving.

Festive Cachepots:

Cachepot is a term derived from the French word cache which means to hide.  The goal is to hide the plastic nursery pot within another, more attractive container. Tuck a poinsettia, potted herb, succulent or Christmas cactus into any container that suits your taste or budget. Glazed pottery, baskets, pre-made pot covers or a simple plain terracotta pot will do the trick. A little decorative moss can be used to further hide the nursery pot or cover the soil. Tie a pretty ribbon around the pot and in an instant, you will have a merry little potted plant.

Caring for Christmas Plants:

It’s December and we have our annual assortment of seasonal houseplants ready to adorn your home. Here is what you need to know about caring for these seasonal beauties and getting the most out of these special plants.

Poinsettias:  Keep from cold draughts and heat. Place them in a bright spot. Water only when soil feels dry to the touch. If you are using a foil pot cover, remove it before watering to allow for proper drainage.

Christmas cactus:  Average room temperature and bright light are all these need. They will tolerate some direct sun. Water thoroughly when completely dry.

Norfolk Island Pine: Cool to average room temperature. Mist leaves occasionally. Water sparingly in the winter. Bright to low light.

Bird of the Month: Cedar Waxwing











The beautiful Cedar Waxwing is an easy bird to identify. It has sleek brown- grey plumage with a yellow band at the tip of its tail, a crest on its head and a black ‘mask’ over its eyes.  The name waxwing comes from the waxy appearance of the red tips on its secondary wings. They usually travel in flocks descending on a fruiting tree and shrubs to feed. Waxwings live in our region year round. They feed primarily on the fruit of hawthorns, chokecherries and mountain ash. Cedar Waxwings make their nests in thick evergreens or in brushy areas. A clutch of 4 or 5 chicks are born each spring. While Waxwings may not visit a birdfeeder, they will readily feed on many fruiting trees or shrubs planted in the landscape. To attract these gorgeous birds, plant fruiting trees and shrubs such as crabapples, viburnum, currants, chokeberry or serviceberry in your yard
