WHAT'S HAPPENING AT SOUTHWOOD?
Join us at the garden center for some of our special events!
Paul James readily admits to being a conifer geek, and he’d like you to share in his enthusiasm for this beautiful and diverse group of plants. Learn how to select, site, and care for dozens of different cone-bearing beauties, and why you should have more of them in your garden. Refreshments will be served. Class is free, but registration is required and limited to 30 guests.
Are you interested in creating a true living piece of art for your wall? Join us as we show you how to mount the plant of your choosing using burlap and a few other supplies. These beautiful arrangements can be hung in various areas; indoors or out, based on the plant you choose. Our plant aficionado Alex Franzmann will also give you all the info you need to keep your arrangement healthy and happy. Registration is required.
So. Darn. Cool. That’s the best way to describe these massive moss walls that truly are living art. And you can hang them vertically or horizontally. Let Designer Alex Franzmann show you how to create one of these beauties to hang in your home year ‘round or on a shady wall of the patio throughout the summer months. Registration is required.
Join us at the Design Table for some kid-sized fun! In this workshop we will teach your kiddos how to plant a terrarium. There are a few tips/tricks to know about how to keep them alive and healthy and in this workshop we will go over those. This workshop cost includes soil, supplies, and knowledge. Bring your own glass vessel or pick one out from our collection. You will be able to pick out the plants of your choice and purchase in class. This workshop is taught by our plant aficionado Alex Franzmann. So COOL! Registration is required.

For years, I’ve been asked repeatedly, “What’s your favorite plant”? It’s a difficult question to answer, because there are so many incredible candidates. But the other day, while pruning my Acer palmatum ‘Shishigashira’ bonsai, I came to the realization that my favorite plant – or more specifically plant group – would have to be Japanese maples.
If you consider the money you spend on plants as an investment of sorts (and you really should), then you should also know that the smartest way to protect and insure a return on your investment is to apply mulch to your garden beds. Here’s why.
Container gardening is more popular than ever. And I couldn’t be happier about that, because I’ve been a container gardening fanatic for decades, and it’s encouraging to know other gardeners – especially newbies -- are discovering just how rewarding it can be. But exactly what are people growing?
In a word…everything.
That’s right. Soil is alive. It’s a living organism. And until you get your head around that concept, you’ll never really get gardening. Sorry, but it’s true. So make those three words your gardening mantra. Carve them into the handle of your favorite shovel. Paint them graffiti-style on your fence. Shout them out at the top of your lungs for all your neighbors to hear!
