WHAT'S HAPPENING AT SOUTHWOOD?
Join us at the garden center for some of our special events!
Join us at the Design Table for some spooky and creepy fun! In this Halloween inspired workshop we will create a terrarium for your carnivorous plant to live and thrive as well as learn how to take care of it once you return home. Carnivorous plants are plants that derive most of their nutrients from trapping insects. They also do not thrive well in soil…so what do we plant them in? Join us and find out! Registration is required.
Due to high demand we added a second Pumpkin & Succulent Workshop! Join us at the Design Table to create your very own Pumpkin Succulent Arrangement! We think these cuties are the perfect addition for any home or office, and they will last for months if cared for properly. Designer and plant aficionado Alex Franzmann will walk you through step by step and give you tips for care for once you get home. Registration is required.
More than just a great pumpkin carver, John Points is an entertainer and all ‘round nice guy who loves helping kids (and adults who are kids at heart) create memorable works of pumpkin art. All materials are provided, but class size is limited to 30. Registration required. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty.
FROM THE BLOG
Read posts from Paul James and our Southwood crew!
Local is a powerful buzzword these days. It resonates with people of all ages who are concerned about where the products and services they buy actually come from. And for that reason, all kinds of companies try to convince folks that what they have to offer is local. But just how “local” is local?
Every year I get on my soapbox to remind people that now is the perfect time to plant all kinds of things, and this year is no different. But to be clear, I’m not talking about things that most folks know to plant in fall – mums, pansies, asters, ornamental kale and cabbage, cool-season veggies, fescue and rye grasses, spring-flowering bulbs – the stuff that practically defines fall planting. I’m talking about practically everything else, in particular trees, shrubs, and perennials.
Fescue is originally from Europe. It didn’t arrive in this country until the mid-19th century, but it’s been happy here ever since, first as a pasture grass and later as a turf grass in lawns across America. Here in Green Country, fescue is the go-to turf for shady spots, where it thrives with a little fertilizer and regular watering.
No other plant on the planet gives you more bang for your buck than a single, solitary, spring-flowering bulb. Think about it: in most cases you shell out less than a buck per bulb and in a few months you wind up with a gorgeous flower that’ll return year after year for decades. And in that time all the plant requires is an occasional drink and a light snack.
