I had so much fun at CB2 last weekend, we’re doing it again! OK, so that’s a partial truth. I did have a lot of fun, but the second and third dates were pre-planned. This week we’re going to be playing around with the Shore Polyterrazzo Planters and the Galvanized Square Planters.

CB2 West Hollywood
8000 W Sunset Blvd.
Saturday, April 28 / 2–4pm
(free 2hr parking with validation)

I love the modern shape and practical style of both of these planters. The Galvanized Square Planters are made out of galvanized iron. They’re coated in a clear laquer finish to keep them pretty for years to come. The Shore Polyterrazzo Planters look like heavy stone, but thanks to a mixture of polyresin and stone, they are actually very light.

This week I wanted to highlight the use of top dressing (i.e. a stylish “mulch” made out of whatever your imagination can come up with that will hide the soil). Got any ideas? If you need help getting your mind working, there are several ideas in Small-Space Container Gardens. Think wine corks and river rocks…

Also, I want to mention the other cool stuff you can see and touch and taste while in the CB2 store. Mikey is an ubertalented floral designer and he will be showing off clever ideas to incorporate fresh flowers into your life. And you’ll definitely want to stop by Cindy’s table. She brings really tasty stuff from Whole Foods to showcase great summer party food ideas. The artichoke dip last week was DELICIOUS!

I was the queen of gardening in a small space when we were in our last apartment (700 sq f). I now luckily have a lot more room but still find myself gardening for a smaller space. I just can’t get it out of my head! Love these containers and might just have to order some from Crate and Barrel.
