Celosia ‘Deep Purple’ {Summer}

Stunning Deep-purple flowers, sturdy leaves with a marble effect…..that’s the new Celosia ‘Deep Purple

The Celosia ‘Deep Purple‘ is easy to maintain and has a long flowering period, so that you can enjoy the beautiful purple flowers for a long time. I love to put plants like the celosia in big pot’s so that the you get a big wow-effect. This fluffy flower doesn’t mind to be cut and put into a vase together with other garden flowers…..I bet it looks stunning with Alchemilla mollis, Astrantia and Anemone. 

The Celosia ‘Deep Purple‘ will be available from April 2014.

DIY {Vintage Planthangers}

Today I’m going to show you a very simple and quick idea to make your won planthangers.

All I used was vintage cups (I got them for €0,35ct) from the thriftshop, bakers twine, soil and small petunia cuttings. Fill te cups with some soil. Put the petunia cuttings in the cups and press them firmly. Don’t fill them to the edge but keep the soil 1cm below the edge (you dont want the soil to come out of the cups). Bind the bakers twine at the handle of the cup and then hang them wherever you want them to be. When you water them be carefull you dont give them to much….you don’t want the plants to come out again 😉

Greenhouses…

green·house [green-hous]

noun, plural green·hous·es  [green-hou-ziz]  

a building, room, or area, usually chiefly of glass, in which the temperature is maintained within a desiredrange, used for cultivating tender plants or growing plants out of season.
Our just a very cute glassbuilding 😉
I would love to have a little greenhouse in the back garden instead of the garden house that’s standing there now. It’s a big dream and I see myself spending a lot of hours maintaining all the plants that are growing in there and for the winter it would be a lovely place to store plants that can’t endure Dutch winters but love Dutch summers.
My inspiration from my Pinterest board GREENHOUSE!
