Unique Items Found at Edward’s

At Edward’s Garden Center, we pride ourselves on finding quality, unique items for our customers to purchase. This year, many of you may have noticed that we changed the layout of the gift shop to offer more items. We have also added a small section near our Home of Gnomes that has antique-like items for your garden.

More space means more great items for you! Here’s a look at the changes we have made in the gift shop and some of the items you can find.

Gift Shop Gifts
From air plants and wind chimes, to Fairy Garden accessories and gifts for kids, our gift shop has something for everyone. For the Fairy Garden lovers, we offer a collection that no one in the area has and each and every item is adorable. Pick up your favorites before they are gone!

Home of Gnome Antique-like Gifts
Our outside mini gift shop is full of items that have been repurposed. From painted buckets to ceramic shoes with plants growing in them, you never know what will strike your fancy.

We have so many great items in our gift shop and around the Garden Center that we can’t possibly put them all on our blog or Facebook page. You will just have to stop in to see what else we have. With Mother’s Day just a few weeks away, you may want to stop in and pick out something for the mother, grandmother or wife in your life.

Air Plants & Terrariums Available at Edward’s

Terrariums and air plants have been quite popular the last few years. They are easy to care for and allow you to get really creative with designs, themes and decorations. They also grow almost anywhere!

So what are air plants?

Air plants or Tillandsias are a genus from the bromeliad family that don’t require soil to grow. The come in a variety of colors and sizes and can grow with little care. There are about 550 types, plus hybrids. Tillandsias are native to the southern U.S., Central America, South America and Mexico. They can be as small as a couple of inches or as large as three feet across. (Chicago Tribune)

Air plants are resistant to pests and diseases and are fairly forgiving and, with ambient air and the proper light and watering, can last quite a long time.

One of the great benefits to growing air plants is they make the air better. Seriously, scientific studies have proven air around air plants is cleaner and more pure.

We love them because they look great in miniature gardens and terrariums.  They can grow inside or outside or both. This year in the gift shop we have added a large selection of air plants and air plant containers.

If you are interested in growing some air plants, stop by the gift shop and speak with Diane, Debi or Amy. They will be happy to give you advice about how to care for air plants and what containers to grow them in.

Why wouldn’t you want to grow them? 🙂
