We're so excited to have Kirsten Dunn, of Dunn DIY, as a guest blogger on Digging Deeper to show us how to make a beautiful and practical raised bed!
Terrariums, those miniature worlds within glass, have always fascinated me. There is something so satisfying about creating a safe haven where your chosen plants can thrive with very little care. Mollie (our indoor plant specialist) and I decided to make a simple fern terrarium, step by step. With this foundation, you can create your own terrarium, one as elaborate or as minimalist as you would like. Be creative and have fun!
With our recent chilly temps and current dreary, grey drizzle, it feels like the perfect time to stay inside and cozy up with a mug of tea and a good book. With that in mind, I offer up a curated selection of Swansons' literary offerings, available in our conservatory gift shop. From cookbooks to gardening classics to gorgeous coffee table books, there are more than enough choices to while away the long rainy season.
My fascination with tiny worlds has never left me. Today, when I'm not writing stories set in worlds of my own creation, I am building miniature gardens. To me, miniature gardening is another form of storytelling, and like any good story, they should have a theme. The theme I have been experimenting with for the last two or three years is what I call 'The Lost Daibutsu.'
