It's raining. It's pouring. Hopefully, no one is snoring despite the fact that gardening outdoors isn't as fun during North Carolina winters as it is during warmer months. That's why we like to use the winter time to plan our landscapes for spring and once we're done digging up our master plant plans, we like to goto the nursery to bring the outdoors in.
Houseplants naturally purify the air by removing airborne pollutants and have been proven to help with health conditions such as asthma. Not only are houseplants healthy, they're also the perfect way to liven up any room. Bring the outdoors in with one or a few of these houseplants we love...
Baby, it's cold outside and that gives us all the more reason to bring the outdoors in. That's why we called on our friends in Florida and had a huge shipment of houseplants delivered. While mother nature tends to take care of your outdoor plants for you, potted plants that grow indoors can be a little tricky because with them you have to take on that role. Don't want all that hassle? We've got just the plant for you––the snake plant.
What's cooler than no school on a snow day? Things that remind us of being warm! In a gardener's mind, there's no better way to do that than to bring the outdoors in with a little something from the desert. With Southwestern design coming back into play in interior design, we think it's a pretty sharp idea to add a cactus to your humble abode to remind you that warmer days will be here before you know it.
While cacti are super trendy, they require a different type of care than you are used to for most of your indoor plants. The good thing is, cacti are even easier to care for than your average ficus tree or angel plant if you know what you're doing. Let's take a crash course on cactus care.

Can you dig it?

Nothing gets us into the holiday spirit like a little DIY project.

Every gardener loves the sound of plants that bring bold color all year long. While there are plenty of evergreen threes and shrubs that keep their green in colder days, there aren't too many plants that thrive in the winter and that come in hues of reds and purples and electric greens. Coral bells are like music to our ears. So let these perennials play in your garden or in your containers. Coral Bells do typically enjoy the shade but because winter is on the way, they'll do just fine in your containers that get a lot of summertime sun. Here, we'll share six of our favorite coral bell varieties that we currently carry. Can you hear it? They're calling your name!
