The Kermodi Bonsai

Ever spent alot of money on a bonsai and it died? I know. and I wouldn't do it. Now you can have the coolest looking plant that looks like a bonsai but not truly a bonsai and this means bonus for you. With succulent jades and curly ficus you get the same form and structure but these are virtually un-killable. The kermodi bonsai selection is available right now. Definitely call us for options.

Terrariums and Vivariums, oh my!

We've been experimenting with Terrariums this season, and are loving the results. These small landscapes encased in glass feature lush ferns, moss and lichen or subtle cactus groupings - all of them are unique, housed in organically shaped glass vessels and each one is distinctly "kermodi".

Look for them at Homewerx and Vancouver Special or come by and see them in the shop.

Fresh Start- September Sale

I think we should have a new year's celebration come September.
I always feel renewed and relaxed by the summer downtimes and when it comes crisp and clear in the fall I just go NUTS with new plans, new creativity, new motivation.
So yes, we are back and at it! Planning for new products and new ventures and new designs to showcase. Come and join us at kermodi for some green tea as always and take advantage of some of our discounts on summer and special stock. Now 30-50% off.
( and yes, this is a very large opuntia with fruit- photo taken in the fall in sevilla, spain )

Backyard Inspiration

I'm an apartment dweller, and I wish for a little patch of green to call my own someday. If I did have a backyard I'd want it to look like this - lot's of places to sit, lounge and no lawn to mow! (photos via http://thebrickhouse.tumblr.com/)

Recharge on the grass?

No, iphones don't grow from seeds (I wish!), but even electronics like a good lounge on the grass (that might be a stretch...). Either way, you can charge your electronics and hide pesky cords with this recharger concept from Kikkerland.
