Annual Trip To Westwood
Last week I made my annual trip to one of my favorite places - Westwood Gardens in northwest Arkansas. As you can see, they have almost every color and variety of poinsettia grown.
It's fun to see what's being planted for spring. The first plantings of geraniums were almost ready to transplant into display baskets.
Along with the larger plants, I like to
purchase a few of the small 4" pots for
arrangements that I can place around my house. I add sprigs of greenery and berries from my backyard plants.
Although I've never used my plants as cut flowers, Southern Living offers some great ideas. An important step - the tips must be seared immediately after cutting to keep the sap in the stem.
