Well this took long enough to get to, don't you think? I've written about the small space gardens at the NWFG Show, as well as the big display gardens. But while "looking" is all fine and good what's a show without a few shopping opportunities? Ya, that's what I thought. We'll start at the booth for Vashon Island's Dig. It's been written about by my friend Peter (click through for a look at them getting ready for the show) but that doesn't mean you shouldn't get to see more of their delicious styling...
I love how much the manage to cram into a small space, kind of like my garden...
That Jack Planter is planted to perfection.
Concrete diamonds and baby heads, everyone needs a few.
And cactus kokedama!
I love the Esther pots when I see them in spaces like this, but I just don't think my home has the right vibe.
Whoa! Monster Tillandsia up above...
More cactus kokedama...
Now we move over to the Swansons booth. I am not (very much NOT) a fan of Fatsia japonica 'Spider's Web'...
But this one, it actually caught my eye and made me stop to appreciate it.
These though, they just look a little sick.
I would have loved to come back on Sunday and see how many of those potted up guys were left. Do people actually shop like that?
Ferns, they're the next big thing you know. Succulents have had their moment (a very LONG moment) but now, it's all about the ferns.
Not that succulents are going away anytime soon.
Over in the Christianson’s Nursery booth I spotted this gorgeous Bromeliad. The price was such that it stayed behind.
This is a Grevillea robusta (Silky Oak), also in the Christianson’s booth. It was very very difficult for me to walk away from this one. However at $34.95 it would have been a very expensive annual.
Ditto for this Schefflera soleil at the Molbak's booth.
Over in the Vintage Market I noticed this fine pair of cement planters, under the table, in the dark. Okay you're right. What I really noticed were the poor Agaves inside the containers.
This interesting mash-up was at the Pacific Galleries booth. I managed to visit their retail location the next day (I'll be writing a little about that on Friday).
