Re: speaking of nurseries and recycling

Our garden club also had a speaker who demonstrated making wreaths our of succulents. If I recall correctly it was the same type you described, Auralie.

Some years ago our garden club had a workshop on living
wreaths, but these were made with succulents.  Barbara
Novich, from Ardsley, taught us to do these things.  She
used a standard wire box frame like you use for Christmas
wreaths, filled it with sphagnum moss and soil, and planted
it with 'Hens and Chicks' and several other types of succulents.
It was a lot of work - someone in the club said "I would gladly
pay someone $75.00 to make me one of these."  But they
were fairly permanent - could live out over a winter and with
some upkeep look good the following year.  I gave mine
away, so can't say how permanent it really was, but they
were attractive.

There you go....have not seen them done with the soaker hose but just sprits daily? The couple of herb ones I saw never got tacky since you continue to
nip them for the herb.  Can't rermember now which ones were used.  Two of
the wire wreaths were used and encased the plants/packing. At least that is
what memory serves!
