plant a forest

At my farmer's market, "the succulent guy" sells individual plants for $2/piece. photo from here

I think this idea is totally cool - and clearly totally green. It's a tried and true wedding gift for guests - and it rocks. Give potted plants! Tree seedlings! Succulents! Flowers! Herbs! Seeds!

This is truly the gift that keeps on giving. (well, as long as your friends and family have somewhat of a green thumb!) I love the picture above with the different types of herbs in the weathered pots...soooooooooooooooo pretty.

tree seedlings wrapped in burlap can be purchased as low as $2.99/piece

This is awesome. From here.

These seed packets are SO PRETTY! Found here.


  1. So cool! You might try to hit up the Farmer's Market for a flat or two of succulents. They have them for $2/ea, I believe but I guess it is a bit ahead of the game for purchasing?

    I saw this and thought of you:

  2. So why did I end up with the black thumb? I grew up with succulents in my house..., my mother had special lights set up for her plants in what should have been our linen closet..., my sister has advice (I haven't yet posted) on alternatives to Martha Stewart Favors... and then I see these.

    Just lovely.

    and yet I have cacti that have lingered long and slow demises in my care. what is wrong with me?

    Your blog is lovely, thank you.
