Tough luck living in Minneapolis, MN this weekend! Since it seems like the spring pond season will never come, I found this video filled with blooming flowers quite cheerful!
If you like tattoos, particularly a flower tattoo, this plant highlighted in the video would be perfect sitting on your front steps or planted near your pond, or even placed in a pot sitting on top of your skimmer box. (I saw something like that last year.)
A little background for the video: Because I am part of the plant world, I subscribe to various plant magazines. (To be perfectly honest, this doesn’t have much to do with ponds or leaks in your pond or even fountains...)
The spring trials are basically a bunch of growers showing off their newest, coolest plants for growers and nursery people. So by watching this video, you are getting a sneak peak at what nurseries in Minnesota will have soon! (Please note: your local nursery may or may not have these plants this season.)
Anyway, enjoy the video! Keep in mind that it is made with a nursery grower in mind, not a backyard pond enthusiast but I hope it brings a bit of spring to brighten your day!
Jeff Chudek has been building ponds and waterfalls professionally since 2005. As a kid, his favorite time of year was spring, because the spring thaw created so much mud and puddles, and all the trees and plants were waking up. He loves figuring out the best way to use something, and fixing things that are broken. He's good at coming up with ideas, and helping choose the best idea for you.
