Mother's Day Botanical Beauty

IMG_3748 Things we love, in no particular order: lavender, mimosas, our moms, all-natural beauty products, avocado toast, Sundays, DIYs, pancakes. Are we missing anything?

IMG_3721 IMG_4797

We're assuming you love all of these things too, which is why we've rolled them all together and planned the best Sunday ever! We've teamed up with LA's boutique market hall, Stir Market, to bring you the ultimate Mother's Day event: our next learn + grow workshop, Mother's Day Botanical Beauty.

For this exclusive workshop, we will create an all-natural lavender body scrub and rose beauty mist, then pot a 4" lavender plant in a cute little terra cotta pot to compliment our new beauty products! If you love your scrub (which you definitely will) you can harvest your very own lavender buds to create more later!

Everyone who attends our Botanical Beauty Workshop will receive a ticket for a complimentary mimosa over at Stir Market to enjoy during your Mother's Day brunch, which includes meyer lemon pancakes and avocado toast! Yum!!

Surviving the Drought!

This year's drought has taken a hold of California, leaving most of the state with extreme conditions and with many SoCal cities, like LA, with water restrictions. With a major cutback on how much we're using our hoses, we know that the lovely leaves you may have just planted could be suffering , too. Plants are the base of the food chain and sustain our habitats, it's important we keep them healthy and thriving. We've highlighted some drought-friendly plants that will help cheer up your garden!

Lavender is a great shrubby perennial that has fire-resistant characteristics, is great for slopes, and attracts all kind of wildlife from the buzzing bees to lovely butterflies. A lush succulent never fails in the sun, as they love the heat!

Variegated Thyme is also another great drought-resistant pick that does well in the shade. The fragrant aroma keeps wildlife around, plus you've got an amazing fresh herb perfect for kitchen use!

Creeping Thyme makes a lovely, fragrant ground cover and is an extremely low maintenance plant that requires very, very little care.

dr_5dr_6 The bold, succulent Agave creates an architectural focal point that will refresh your garden. It's drought tolerant and an excellent choice for a dry, sunny spot!

A great way to cut back on your water usage is to train your plants to use less water: water as needed to keep the root system moist but not saturated until the plants become established. Happy Gardening!
