Epic Living Walls and Plant Frames

Vertical garden systems – those living green walls you see in interior design magazines or gracing the exterior of your favorite cutting-edge restaurant – aren’t just for looks. This unique architectural feature provides more practical benefits than you may think, positively impacting everyone from dementia patients to elementary school students and even influencing the future of agriculture (Horticulture Week notes that the UK is already considering how walls might contribute to their food supply).

Here in Sarasota, Selby Gardens plans to incorporate living walls in their ten-year, $67 million transformation, an addition that follows a city-wide trend of restaurants, businesses, hotels, homes and more greening up their vertical spaces.

Touting trendy names such as Aloft Hotel, Sarasota Quay and Sarasota Modern, this new wave of accommodations is state of the art, and a perfect fit for the natural paradise which surrounds our town.

poinsettia care
If you have poinsettias decorating your home, retail store, or corporate environment, you will want to keep them looking festive and fresh all season long, right into the New Year. You may even be motivated to keep the flowers alive until next season, which is certainly possible. In order to care for your poinsettias now and well into the future, Beneva Plantscapes would like to offer some easy tips.

Did You Know? The vivid, colorful “flowers” of the poinsettia are actually its leaves, called bracts. The true flower is the yellow cluster in the center. When researching poinsettia care, any reference to the bracts means the large red, white or pink leaves.
