Cool, Hot, Fresh - It's summer!

Even if Vancouver isn't really bucking up with the great summer weather - you can bask in the turquoise waters at home with kermodi's new summertime series called "Jewel". We've paired them with limey green succulents and cactus with, of course, the white sand beach to top it off!

Edible Kermodi

Fresh herbs simply make e-v-e-r-y-thing taste better. So sweep off the balcony or patio, or make room on the front stoop- herbs will thrive in the sunniest spot you've got available.

Kermodi's edible art herb gardens come in two sizes and will bring a blast of fresh greenery and zest to your summer picnic plans. Basil? Thyme? Mint? Which herbs will you toss into summer meals to create something delectable?

Garden Inspiration/Innovation - Pothole Gardens

We love creative solutions to problems. Example, British artist Pete Dungey. To highlight the problem of "surface imperfections" on Britain's roads, he created a series of public art installations in the form of pothole gardens. Call it guerilla gardening, art, or plain silly - whatever it is, it made us smile.

Werxshop 001: DIY Succulent Gardens by Kermodi

Handy design principles and a few trade secrets (shh...) were revealed at Kermodi's first DIY class held recently in Vancouver. Kermodi Living Art was honoured to kick off the Homewerx Werxshop series with Werxshop 001: DIY Succulent Gardens.

The DIY class was held on a sunny, spring Saturday at Homewerx modern lifestyle store on Davie Street. It
was devoted to the care and unique personalities of succulents ~ plants that store water in their leaves and roots. We played with many varieties of cacti, aloe and eccheveria, to name a few. Fresh, animated and very zen, succulent gardens from soft sage to vivid greens were composed by our keen plant artistes. Thanks to all those who got down and dirty!
