The plant world turned upside down
Had to laugh when I saw this DIY suggestion at lifehacker.Â The Topsy-Turvy craze is spilling over into the ornamental market. The project looks like it could be fun. Recycling old containers into upside down planters. The orchid is a great subject, too.
If you don’t want to tackle the project yourself you could head over to Velocity where they will sell you the completed project, called a Boskke Sky Planter Classic for just $75.
When the world seems “turned upside down” why fight it?
I am not fan of the Topsy-Turvy. Last year I wrote that, “one wonders how many people who planted a tomato in a Topsy-Turvy will do that again? I canâ€™t think of any one item this year (2009)that so perfectly expresses peoples excitement about gardening, and yet tells of their utter lack of knowledge about gardening. This things just donâ€™t work out here where summer time heat gets in the 90â€™s and 100 degree F range. They dry out much too quickly, yet I have many customers who bought them (not from us). People still love the idea of a gimmick.”
