22 in Garden Planter

16 in Art Planter

{shop :: Facebook :: Instagram}

Since we are focusing on “Planting the Seed” this month, it only seems fitting to spend a little time diving into the literal. Bringing plants into your home creates a warm, alive atmosphere and (on a metaphorical level) invites growth and the space to breath into your home. My personal focus as of late has been plant oriented. Granted, it is spring and the vegetables and flowers we planted have started their reach to the sun so it got me thinking about my indoor space and how much I needed that greenery in my rooms, not just in my backyard.

Chelsey Rosetter and Ben Farber created Plantography out of sheer desire. Rosetter and Farber began creating wall garden boxes for friends and family and soon realized that the demand was so high they needed to expand. On a personal level, I’ve been researching indoor planting boxes such as these for awhile now and I must admit that Plantography is the absolute standard in aesthetics and sheer functionality. From garden planters to art planters, your foray into bringing the outdoors in is right in the palm of your hand. And, friends, let’s make a pact: let’s all hang one of these Plantography planters on our wall and call “Planting the Seed” a done deal.

Plantography is giving away one 22″ Garden Planter to one lucky winner AND one 16″ Art Planter to a second winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than
Please visit Plantography and tell us: What is your favorite plant or flower and why?
Start checking the winner’s box on Tuesday, April

    Holy moley, these planters are great! We have very few shelves where our two plant-chewing cats cannot get, so our options are limited when it comes to house plants, but bringing our plant game to the WALLS is a whole other story! Genius idea!

    We have a gorgeous garden (that is mainly my husband’s domain) that is full of delicious veggies and herbs, decorative greenery and a weeping cherry tree. My aunt gave us tons of bulbs and sedum last year to expand the ornamental plantings around our house, and we have three lilac bushes near the garage that I cannot wait for their fragrant blooming period. However my favorite flower is unrepresented in our yard: the crocus. I just love walking through our urban neighborhood in early spring and watching those purple-headed beauties pop up in random places, promising that “yes and truly, warm weather WILL be here before you know it.” I’ve long wanted to find a good spot for those early heralds of beautiful and sunny days in our own yard. Maybe this year I’ll be able to figure it out!

    I love Jade plants. They’re so easy to grow and my grandma gave me one!

    I love peonies. They’re like roses without the overwhelming perfume smell. Unfortunately I can’t grow them in my part of California because it’s too warm for it to go dormant in the winter (except one variety I haven’t found yet).

    Of what I can’t grow, I can’t choose. I started growing my own vegetables and herbs 4 years ago after being inspired by all the British cooking shows I watch and their pride in growing their own. It’s definitely been a learning process and dealing with mother nature has proven it’s challenges, especially the brutal summer heat last year.

    I love this idea! Hanging succulents on the wall is a fantastic way to add more greenery into my home. Maybe they’ll see more sunlight on the wall.

    I have a favorite plant, but I’m not sure what it is. It was part of a basket from my grandpa’s funeral 4 years ago. It’s impressive that it’s still alive because every plant I’ve bought from stores since then has died. I have a black thumb! It makes me really happy that this one is still green. As a side business, my grandpa used to trim trees. He loved nature. I like to think he’s keeping it alive for me.

    Brugmansia (such an official word for such a magical, fairy-land  looking tree!) The smell is heavenly and I feel like a little girl sticking my face in the trumpet shaped flower.

    I love so many plants and flowers, but one that is special to me is lavender. It grows in my mother’s garden in explosions of purple-grey and scent, and every time I smell it, no matter where I am, I am brought back to that warm, safe place.

    My favorite plant is my Christmas Cactus.  I have had it for years and  just love all the blooms on it.  Though this year it decided that March would be a better time to bloom than December – it was a beautiful as ever.

    Tulips…simple and beautiful sign of spring.

    At different times in my life, I’ve loved different plants (for different reasons).   Right now, it’s the eggplant!  (Aubergine!!!)  It combines my childhood love of flowers and my adult love of learning to grow my own food.  (If I got a second choice, I would pick succulents.  I planted them in mason jars that I painted white for wedding favors.  I love giving away plants!)

    Wisteria. Both of my kids were born in March and we have wisteria outside of our bedroom window and when it starts to bloom, it reminds me of the time they were born!

    I love this little pine plant – I gave it to my hubby when we were dating and now years later it is still thriving and it is fun to see it grow.

    I would say the yellow daffodil because they remind me of my happy childhood growing up in Montreal Canada.

    Since buying my house, I have fallen in love with my rose bushes. I pour all of my (very limited) maternal instincts into taking care of them. They thrive in spite of my attention and they make me happy every time I see them.

    Susanna B. says:

    Gardenia! The fragrance is amazing. My mother used to put a gardenia plant on either side of my bed when they were blooming and it was wonderful to fall asleep with that fragrance!

    Courtney J says:

    I love honeysuckle flowers because they remind me of when I was in elementary school. Large bushes grew near the playground and when my brother, mom and I would walk our dog at the school on weekends (yes, we were in walking distance…this is the suburbs), I’d pick the flowers and try to suck the nectar out. Looking back on that now, it seems kind of disgusting, but I thought it was cool as a child.

    I love the planter with the deep.purple succulents..The colors are so beautiful…Looking at the planter brings me back to a trip I took with friends..At the time I had little money to spend on souvenirs of our girls trip. So while my friends were buying their fancy items..I would take a walk and snip off a piece off a succulent,plant growing wild along the coast..By the time we got to SF..and got to Haight Ashbury I met a man who lives now  where Janis Joplin lives and his cousin where Jimi Hendrix lived. He gave me permission to cut a.piece of the succulents from the yards of each… I came home with the most amazing souvenirs and they were free. To this day I still have the succulents in a large pot.They would be beautiful next to or even replanted in one of your planters..

    My favorite plant is the blossoming cherry tree in my front yard. It is gorgous, and has beautifull pink blossoms. It is acctually taken from a branch that had to get cut off of my first cherry tree, and it lived.

    I love ferns. Seriously! The woods near my house are packed with them in summer time and I just can’t wait until they pop out every year.

    My 50+ yr old Hibiscus…..yep, my dad planted it for me in an indoor planter he built in the house when I was a little girl…..my mom left us the house after she died so my husband and I are in the midcentury home I grew up in watching all this stuff grow and bloom as I speak!!

    My favorite plant is a sedum because in the fall they are a beautiful rust color and the bees love them!  Another favorite is the toad lilly.

    Monica Borge says:

    My favorite plant is the aloe vera plant because as a kid I was extremely reckless and loved to be outdoors and would often get scrapes and bruises. Not to mention I grew up on an island so I know sunburns…This plant helped heal me and make me better. It really made me realise the power of the earth and natural world around us.

    Peonies are my fave…so elegant & fragrant.

    Eliza says:

    Basil basil basil basil basil.    I have never experienced more joy than growing something that I use CONSTANTLY.  I watch it make my neighbors, friends, and family happy and nourished – I make a lot of caprese salad and pesto pizza in the summer!  Alongside that happiness, I love watching the little plant miraculously make leaves over and over again after I’ve harvested it almost bare.  It’s a lesson in hard work for me.

    I love climbing moonflower because it blooms at night… vining upwards, reaching towards its namesake.  The fragrant blooms are absolutely intoxicating.   I’m riveted by nature that gets aroused in darkness in lieu of sleeping.

    Jenni Schaub says:

    I adore circus roses. They are incredibly difficult to find but I just love the explosion of color as they bloom! I would love to have a bush in my front yard so I could enjoy their bright orange and yellow hues every spring!

    Sharon says:

    My favorite plant is a cane begonia. They are also known mostly as cane begonias. They’re tropical and bloom nearly year round with graceful umbels of flowers that look like they would make a tinkling sound if they could. They bloom prolifically and the plants get stronger and taller each year. The leaves are beauties in their own rights, with greens and purples, pinks …..some shimmering.

    Coral M. says:

    These are so cool! My favorite has got to be a rose. I love the season when they are in bloom all around my neighborhood and I can take breaks during walks with my dog to smell all of the different ones. Perfect!

    Rachel says:

    My favourite flowers are forget-me-nots.  Not only are they gorgeous, but they remind me not to forget the good times I’ve had with the people I loved.  In our family, we plant forget-me-nots around the graves of those we love: family, friends, and pets.

    I love to grow herbs because they add such freshness and depth to my cooking. It’s proof to me that God wants me to feel joy in food.

    Jennifer says:

    This is an impossible question, but it’s such a super giveaway…so, I’ll choose one.

     Lilacs.

    My grandmother’s favorite flowers were Calla Lilies…white ones.  I grew up next door to her, and I used to spend afternoons playing at my Grandmother’s house until my parents arrived home from work.  She had a swing set for us in her backyard, and beside it….two large Lilac bushes.  I spent many spring days playing on that swing set with my cousins and breathing in the sweet fragrant blooms.  
    And so today, when I see Calla Lilies, of course I think of my grandmother.  But when I remember my grandmother and all the times we spent together, I think of hot dinners in her farm house, soft music from her record player, summer nights chasing fireflies, and her spring garden full of blooming lilacs.

    Charlotte D. says:

    Calla Lilies!  Love the purity, the color, the simplicity… I remembered seeing it for the first time in the movie Stage Door with Katherine Hepburn.  I feel in love with it right then and there.

    Renee A. says:

    I would love to have one of those planters in my kitchen. My fave plant  is hydrangeas because they are just so beautiful and make me smile every time I  see them.

    Lilies of the valley remind me of my grandma. Magnolia’s remind me of my childhood home and Peonies make me happy because all my dead dogs are buried underneath them;)
