A small water feature for kids to engage in! Water from a cistern can be pumped into a stream bed, that leads to small puddles. Fun splashing and hot weather refreshment while learning about the outdoors? Wonderful! Not by the ocean or a river this summer? No worries!

This Magic Carpet Spirea wowed us with its stunning colors earlier this summer!๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŒž 'Walbuma', commonly sold under the trade name Magic Carpet, was bred by David R. Tristam of Walberton Nursery in West Sussex, England. It was selected from third generation seedlings of self-pollinated Spiraea japonica 'Goldflame'. 'Walbuma' is a compact and spreading shrub with terminal clusters of small bright pink flowers. Its young shoots and leaves are red and mature to variations of gold, depending on light. In full sunlight, mature leaves are golden; under partial shade, mature leaves are greenish gold; and in dense shade, mature leaves are bright green. Fall coloration is a rich russet. 'Walbuma' is considerably shorter than its parent plant, growing 1 to 2 ft. tall and 2 to 3 ft. wide. _______________ #permaculture #urbangarden #seattlegardens #spirea #magiccarpet #hgo #colorburst #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #homegrownorganics #permaculturelandscaping #kirkland #beautiful #spiraeajaponica #vibrant #stunning

We've installed over 150 rain gardens in the Puget Sound region! We love seeing how they've aged over the years and created habitats for diverse beneficial soil life in addition to stopping and filtering runoff water. Today, Seattle manages nearly 100 million gallons of polluted runoff each year using green stormwater infrastructure methods. The goal is to manage 700 million gallons of runoff a year by 2025! If you live in a targeted sewer overflow basin, you may be eligible for rebates to install a rain garden or cistern. Interested in seeing if you're eligible? Shoot us a message for a consult or check out our website (link in profile).๐Ÿ’ง๐ŸŒŽ ______________ #rainwise #sustainable #organic #raingarden #permaculturelandscaping #seattle #homegrownorganics #seattlegardens #permaculture #makeadifference #organicgardening #urbangardens #greeninfrastructure #grip

A low-maintenance plant after being established, the beautiful and ghostly dusty miller is resistant to deer and frost. As with most silvery, furry plants, growing dusty miller helps the garden remain attractive through the heat of the summer. You'll find these wooly-looking plants also in far west Asia, northwest Africa, and southern Europe. Well-drained soil is a must to prevent root rot. Most gardeners choose this plant for the loveliness and contrast of the fronds, not the flowers. Colorful flowers nearby or in front can create a stunning palette!๐ŸŽจ __________________ #dustymiller #silver #seattlegardens #hgo #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #homegrownorganics #fuzzy #silverragwort #jacobaeamaritima #permaculturelandscaping

This lovely flower is the Columbine, hailing from the buttercup family. Also known as Granny's Bonnet, its leaves often bear the "doodling" of leaf miners (an insect larvae). But the damage usually is not serious and gives the foliage a sort of randomly "variegated" look that may be appealing to some gardeners. A perennial plant found in meadows & woodlands, the flowers of Columbines were consumed by Native Americans as a condiment. The taste is sweet and safe in moderation. However, the roots and seeds are poisonous, so use caution in handling them. Brightly-colored flowers that are tubular hold the most nectar, and are particularly attractive to hummingbirds. These include perennials such as bee balms, columbines, daylilies, and lupines; biennials such as foxgloves and hollyhocks; and many annuals, including cleomes, impatiens, and petunias. Once established, columbine plants are drought-tolerant. This makes them perfect for rock gardens or woodland gardens!๐ŸŒณ __________________________ #permaculture #ediblegarden #seattlegardens #edibleplants #urbanfarming #eatlocal #urbanforaging #hgo #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #columbine #flower #homegrownorganics #permaculturelandscaping

๐Ÿ’ชWhatchu talkin' 'bout comfrey being an absolute Wonder Woman of a plant? It's true! Comfrey is a powerhouse in the permaculture gardenโ€”attracting pollinators and beneficial insects, providing medicinal value, and enriching soil with nutrients. It's amazingly low-maintenance. Harvesting nutrients from deep in the soil with its long roots, comfrey is high in nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, potash, and calcium. Its roots reach 6-10 feet deep into the earth, breaking up heavy clay and creating channels for aeration and better water absorption in your garden. Being mucilaginous, comfrey is commonly used for helping heal wounds, preventing scars and treating existing ones, along with decreasing dryness and flaking of skin. The oil appears to work as an anti-inflammatory, an analgesic and an aid in the healing of sprains and broken bones.โœจ ____________________ #permaculture #seattlegardens #urbanfarming #urbanforaging #hgo #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #soilhealth #homegrownorganics #permaculturelandscaping #mulch #comfrey #naturalsolutions #healingplants #fuzzy #purple #compost #bioactivator #greenmaure #mustknowmonday

A custom designed living wall build using burlap, stone and tile. We love the juxtaposition of the greenery against the colorful hardscape materials! The idea for living green walls was first patented by Stanley Hart White in 1938, however it is Patrick Blancโ€™s name that is first noted for major vertical wall installation. After creating one of the most famous green walls at the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris, he was dubbed the godfather of the โ€˜vegetable wall,โ€™ carving the path for a whole new world of potential in sustainable architecture! Living walls are also referred to as green walls, vertical gardens or in French, mur vรฉgรฉtal.๐ŸŽ _______________________ #permaculture #seattlegardens #hgo #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #homegrownorganics #repurposed #livingwall #creative #gardening #greenwall #permaculturelandscaping #burlap #stone #tile #colorful #expressyourself #verticalgarden #patrickblanc #sedum

The colors on this #saucermagnolia were just lovely a few months back! Magnolias were named after the French botanist, Pierre Magnol. These trees are either evergreen or deciduous and bear beautiful and often very fragrant flowers that grow to be quite large! Fun fact - did you know that magnolias are pollinated by beetles? It's true! The hard work of sap-feeding beetles, tumbling flower beetles, leaf beetles and weevils (among others) keeps this beautiful and varied species of flowering tree and shrub going. #permaculture #urbangarden #seattlegardens #flowerpower #hgo #magnolia #bloom #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #homegrownorganics #permaculturelandscaping

Let's talk about one of the superheroes of a well-maintained garden - mulch! Mulching is hugely beneficial beyond making your yardscape look pretty. It can help retain moisture for the roots of your plants, add nutrients back into the soil, and suppress the growth of weeds!

A few weeks ago we spotted some slightly-past-their-prime #morels in the nursery! Did you know Washington has one of the highest number of mushroom species in the world? ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ„ In addition to blonde and black morels, other culinary mushrooms you can find include hedgehog, lobster, porcini/king bolete, Pacific golden chanterelle, white and blue chanterelles, yellow foot/winter chanterelle, black trumpet, oyster, saffron milk cap, coral hydnum/bear's tooth, cauliflower mushroom, Oregon black and white truffle, and matsutake/Japanese pine mushrooms. If you're interested in learning about how mushrooms can interact beneficially with your environment, check out Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World (the sixth book written by American mycologist Paul Stamets). In Mycelium Running, Stamets explores the use and applications of fungi in #bioremediationโ€”a practice called #mycoremediation. __________________________ #permaculture #seattlegardens #hgo #urbanfarming #growlocal #mycology #urbanforaging #organicgardening #permaculturegardening #homegrownorganics #permaculturelandscaping #paulstamets #mycelium

Did you know the California lilac bush (in the Ceanothus family) also works as a natural soap? Just add a little moisture and presto! Clean hands! Depending on the species youโ€™ll get a lather with a mild aroma. You can see California lilac growing wild in Oregon, California and Washington, and some species are found as far as Guatemala. ๐ŸŒฑ __________________________ #permaculture #seattlegardens #hgo #urbanfarming #growlocal #naturalsoap #urbanforaging #organicgardening #ceanothus #permaculturegardening #homegrownorganics #permaculturelandscaping

Is your soil living?? If your garden, flower beds, or even potted plants haven't been growing like they either used to or should, the problem could be neglecting of the soil food web. Growing beautiful flowers, massive gardens, are all accomplished by focusing on the organisms in the soil first, then the plant needs after. Here you can see beneficial fungal myciulum at work, actively breaking down nutrients, minerals, and other organisms, making them plant available for the nearby roots! Garden season is quickly approaching, despite the spots of rain, so don't sleep! Call/Contact for free consultation, and grow big this season! #permaculturelandscaping #permaculture #landscape #hardscape #garden #urbangardening #urbanfarming #veggy #flowers #planting #season #mycology #mushroom #mycorrhizae #fungi #CalPoly #student #slo #morrobay #pismobeach
