Quick announcement: The lucky winner whose name was drawn from a hat for our 1 hour Landscape Design Consultation Giveaway is Cheryl!!! Congratulations Cheryl and thank you for your comment about what you're looking forward to doing most this spring:
"Ladies you made my morning! I am so looking forward to cleaning up a massive mess of forsythia this spring. I have a huge bed of it that doesn't bloom very well and is pale yellow. I'd love to tear it all out and maybe plant a little bit of a brighter variety and some other things in this area. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some advice from you!"
Cheryl- Remember to email Kristin within one week of this announcement to confirm your interest in and availability for the consultation, or we'll move onto the next name. Please email Kristin at email@example.com.
Did you know that your house plants filter the air? That is part of the reason for the dust that collects on the leaves. Here is a dust cleaning trick that I learned from my former boss - the old and wise Dr. Kowalski (ha! he's going to shake his head and say "me, old!" when he reads this). He's the smarty-pants-scientist-type (kinda like our friend Jim with the washing soda explanation).
This concept is quite simple and makes life easy. All you do is gather your plants and place them under the shower for about 10 seconds to wash off all the dust, allowing the plants to breath better.
|Yep, I've got a super dusty house. Hardwood floors |
and a black lab are contributors.
|Place in the shower and run water (cold/warm water) for about|
10 seconds. If you have a shower head with different settings, make
sure you have it on a gentle setting.
