URBAN JUNGLE BLOGGERS MARCH – PLANTS & GLASS

Victorian glass plant cabinetI am happily having a very green week here – up to my elbows in plants is how I love to spend my days and it’s all good. Today is Urban Jungle Bloggers day and this month it’s all about plants and glass. So, I have gathered together all my glassy planty things in one place just for you and the gorgeous UJB’s.Spanish bluebellsWe bought this sweet little antique cabinet for our pop up shop last October and sadly it has been gathering dust under the table – until now. I dug it out a couple of weeks ago and decided I was going to make weekly displays for our home inside and around it. It has done a fair bit of traveling around the house in various spots and this week it is bringing joy to the office.Victorian glass plant cabinetI was super excited when I found out this month’s theme was Plants & Glass – and a little scared – what about all those reflections? But I have been busy potting up some beautiful recycled glasses and this zinc terrarium (both from Rose & Grey), so it was the perfect time to find out how they would photograph – I actually found the little glimmers of light quite fun to capture! Glass terrariumI popped a perfect singular house leek – from our local award winning nursery – in each glass and this sweet baby fern in the terrarium – they will all eventually reside outside but I wanted to keep them indoors for a bit to admire their leaves and forms.Victorian glass plant cabinetThe recycled glass vase is from my friend Rose’s shop Butlers in Hastings Old Town and I think the vintage lab bottle was found in her shop as well! A treasure trove if you are visiting Hastings Old Town any time soon? The print on the wall fit in with my arrangement too as it’s a little lady working away in her glass house – it’s called Fertile Earth by Harriet Lee-Merrion – LOVE her work!Growing mintindoor gardeningThe plants potted in glasses without any drainage are for a temporary display and will be watered very sparingly until I transfer them outdoors when it’s a little warmer. Just as well I hear Dean whisper – he might be feeling a little crowded in here with all my new friends these days!Spanish bluebellsVictorian glass plant cabinetmacro plant imagesBe sure to visit our lovely Urban jungle hosts Igor and Judith and the whole UJB’s gang for more inspiring green fun. Happy indoor gardening! xxxIndoor garden

    Wohoow more and more planties are joining your family! I’m sure Dean will feel better when they can happily thrive in the garden outside ;) Not sure when though, it’s been freezing here these past few days. Hoping for warmer days soon, also at yours’. Have a great time in Wales Jeska!! xx
