Description

Welcome all plant lovers, plant experts, plant enthusiasts and beginners! I am so excited to share my adventures with all things plants! I am not an expert but join me in my ongoing journey of slowly becoming an expert! I have been passionate about all things plants for YEARS. With everything that I have explored on social media or plant websites I realized there seems to be TWO THING MISSING... a US Midwestern perspective in the amazing world of social media outlets, podcasts or blogs AND just straight, no fluff plant info. I am a proud Wisconsinite and we have a different and somewhat complicated environment for growing houseplants & plants! BUT just because we have a different environment doesn’t mean we can’t learn from the experts on the East and West coasts or around the world! Want to join my adventure? Then FOLLOW Houseplant Homebody on Instagram and Facebook and go follow my personal plant inspirations on Pinterest. You can find me at ALL of those places @houseplanthomebodyllc. And DON’T FORGET to get involved! Comment on posts or pictures, ask me questions, provide your best plant advice or tag @houseplanthomebodyllc in your posts or comments. There is so much to learn in the plant world and I want to encourage everyone to soak it up! Houseplant Homebody is the best community for ALL THINGS PLANTS.

Ep#34: Landscape Design & Plants Pt. 1
01:16:32

I am just as passionate about landscape design and plants as I am houseplants! Landscape plants were my first love and within a year or so working at the garden center, I was able to understand design, environment and plant material.  Learning all of that allowed me to create landscapes for customers and advise about appropriate plants. In this podcast we will talk about what to think about when picking out plant material and potential plant material considerations. I am currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and my hardiness zone is 5a. The plants I will be talking about are specific to my area but plants do extend into several hardiness zones. Make sure to do your research for each plant and check your own hardiness zone.
