LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Lifestyle Expert Chris Olsen's goal in life is to "always out-do-himself". And when it comes to plants, that is his motto!
Plants with the Natural Look
Most of us crave some type of living indoor plant or plants for color or simply to add a little life to a grey day. Most of us, as well, want something that looks great but is still low maintenance. I have a great "jhemajang" look that you can create yourself by simply making a collectable display of succulents, echiveras, and if dish gardens of miniature houseplants. If you arrange these plants with other items such as old books and even old cigar boxes, one can have a great living display that adds what I call the "Botanica Gardens" style to your home.
Containers with a Spring Flair
My goal in life is to "always out-do-myself". This would be a great goal for all of us especially when it comes to container gardening. Sure you can plant your winter pots with pansies, ornamental kale, assorted evergreens and perennials, but for a spring twist, mix in some branches of pussy willows, forsythia twigs, and even cherry blooms. Spikes of these spring flowers vertically bursting out from the center of any planted container will give your porch or patio a new and fresh look.
