They say January is a slow time of year for interiorscapers, but we have been all over the place this month!! Our AMAZING designer and new business developer, Alyce, attended the annual TPIE, Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition in warm sunny Florida! While down south she got the full tour of a few nurseries!! Take a look at the luscious plants that she got to see:

Annually every 3rd week in September marks National Indoor plant Week! We love this week because it showcases some of our favorite things: PLANTS!! This week is to remind us all of how important plants are to our happiness and even our survival! What are the benefits of indoor plants you ask?! Well let me inform you:
1. Purifies the air we breath: Plants break down chemical components found in industrial glues and paints and remove other pollutants from the air.
2. Noise reduction: Reduces distractions and makes it much easier to concentrate
3. Creates Oxygen!!
4. Connects us with the Outdoors: Plants in the work-space give a sense of connection with nature (something that you miss when you are inside all day, especially in the winter time!)
5. Ease tension: Plants moderate temperatures, increase relative humidity, and can personalize an office space.
And soooo much more!!
Last year to celebrate this week we were on the streets of Boston handing out plants to passerby's to bring a little life to the office desks! Guess what?!?! We will be doing the same thing again this year! We had so much fun with it last year that we knew that we had to celebrate the same way this year.
SOOOOOOOOO come find us on Tuesday September 15, 2015 on the Rose Kennedy Greenway at the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and East India Row from 10:30am till all our plants are gone! Looking forward to seeing you there!
Florida Nursery, Growers, and Landscape Association puts together a yearly show for us interior landscapers (and for the warmer states exterior landscaping) Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition or as us plant people like to call it TPIE. Here we get to meet with our vendors as well as very potentially new vendors. While we were down there this year we took time out of our schedules to visit some spectacular new nurseries!
Excelsa Gardens really just knocked us away! Their nursery was just darling and felt as though we had been swept away into a new and magical world. Here are some pictures of our adventures there! Thanks Excelsa Gardens for showing us around and sharing a piece of your heaven with us!
