House Plants and Garden Designs

It always seems to be winter by the time I find a few quality moments to get back to my blogs. This year, more the case than others!

After a very busy few months of packing, cleaning, moving, and then attempting to find everything once again, finally I have come to a garden in which I can stay for a while. The winter can now be used to layout and create the new garden and landscaping design plans for my spring time renovations. The new space is private, well kept, and at this point very simply landscaped. Best of all, there is unlimited potential and I plan to make the most of it!

This brings me to my winter plans for the site… 

Considering the time of year, and how nice it is to brighten up the house with greenery as the days get shorter, indoor gardening and house plants are a great place to start I think. Some of the topics I want to discuss over the next few months are: kitchen herb gardens, oxygen producing plants, air purifying plants, as well as the many other types of plants are great to include inside a home.  

The second project that will be focused on is a feature on garden and yard design as I research and design my upcoming garden, yard, and patio. As I am planning to blog myself through this project, several new posts relating to my garden and yard space are slated throughout the upcoming months.

These posts will include articles, how to guides, photos, and informative links relating to dry landscape yard and garden design, vegetable gardens, herb and kitchen gardens, greenhouses, flowers, potted plants and patio areas. Primarily I will be focusing on organic methods of gardening, low impact and self-sustainable practices.

I am very excited about the upcoming projects and look forward to sharing the information. If any of these topics are of interest, make sure to check back periodically or subscribe by email to receive new posts as they are published.

Planting the Seeds, Growing a Garden.

Welcome to the online premier of A Growing Garden. With the start of a fresh new year, I have decided to create another online venue to showcase my garden related knowledge, articles, photography, art, and anything else interesting that may come across the garden path in the New Year.

I hope to use this New Year, in part, to share with you all, my ideas about gardening, landscape design, to even issues such as, the preservation and protection of Canada's precious natural habitats. As our planet is a growing and changing place, gardening for a sustainable future will be another topic of great concern for 2011 blog year. Other topics of discussion will involve the different methods of planting, growing and harvesting vegetables, fruits, berries, and anything else that can be grown under the sun…

Make sure to check back for updates and changes in the New Year, as this will be a Growing Garden.
