Bundle a small plant in a peat/soil/sand combination. Bundle that in moss. Tie it tidily in string. Place it on a pretty dish and a Kokadama display is created.

Kokadama is a Japanese art form in which plants  grow free-standing in a bundled moss ball rather than a pot.

Hang several from the ceiling, and you will have what is popularly known as a string garden.

Look for our Kokedama nook next to the front door of the shop.

Please remember the nursery will close Saturday, October 4.We apologize for any inconvenience.

Lots of fall/winter veggies are in stock to get your cool season gardening under way:
