Urbanjunglebloggers – Plant Shelfie 2

November 5, 2015

I’m back! Yep, not having been able to join the last two editions, I’m happy to be part of the November Urban Jungle Bloggers fun.

Urban Jungle Bloggers is a monthly series, devised by Igor and Judith. The idea is to get some green into our homes, especially for us urban folks! Every month they invite bloggers to share ideas for creating an urban jungle through styling challenges, DIYs, green tips and tricks. Every month there is a different theme on the topic. You can follow and get more urban jungle bloggers inspiration on their Pinterest boards and Facebook page.

November’s theme is: ‘Plant Shelfie 2′.

Same shelf as Plant Shelfie 1 but with different plants! Meet my new babies.

Loving my new string of pearls in this concrete container. I think the colours really complement each other. Bought both from Grace & Thorn.

Hoping that I’ll manage to look after these string of hearts, from Grace & Thorn, potted in this black glass vase.

I’ve had this white ceramic bowl for a while (bought at  Botany shop) and found these gorgeous little succulents at Grace & Thorn. Think it’s a match made in heaven.

I’ve never had a Fittoria before (also from Grace & Thorn). Apparently they’re not difficult to look after. Have had this deep olive diamond cut glass vase for years. Am always looking out for the sophisticated smoke and tranquil blue ones! If any of you know where I could find them, do let me know.

Nice touch from Grace & Thorn to supply the customer with these printed cards with instructions of care (on the reverse side). Thank you!

And for a bit of fun, the lovely Stella Baggott (Atelier Stella) vase, bought from westelmUK, is filled with some yummy organic broccoli. My mini succulent in this mini vase seems happy too. Result!

Looking forward to everyone else’s plant shelfie!

    String of pearls is one of my favourite plants – love the flow and sculptural look of it. It looks really good in that concrete container – such a great contrast and shows it off really well.

      Yes, me too. Not sure why I’ve never had one before!
      In the beginning I wasn’t sure about the concrete container but now I really love it. Also love the difference in scale.

      Ha. Think the Broccoli looks really good in the vase.
      Great instructions card. Small detail and huge impact.
      Thanks x

    What a gorgeous collection Tina! Absolutely love the string of hearts, I nearly bought some the other day, wish I did! How cool would it be if you really could grow mini broccoli in pots… Have a lovely weekend x

      Thank you Mel!
      I also love both the string of pearls and string of hearts. Not quite sure why I’ve not had them before…. hmmm…
      Gosh, would love to grow broccoli, am a little addicted to it. They have to be the baby ones with leaves, steamed and with olive oil, lemon and salt. YUM!!!

      Thank you Mel x
