I said ‘Yes!’ immediately when shown these groovy new hanging saucers ! They can’t be called hanging baskets as they look nothing like baskets. They are powder-coated, galvanized metal dish gardens that you hang. They come in bright ‘Mad Men’ colours like orange, turquoise, retro greens and red. They are made in Vancouver by the very talented Todd Holloway and sold in a few retail outlets such as Vancouver Special on Main St and at Southlands Nursery. There are two sizes : 17.5″ diameter is $128.00 , 16.5″ diameter is $118.00 unplanted.

We have a small stock of these hardy orchids for sale right now . They are Cypripedium hybrids, bred in Germany from North American native species. They are stunning ! Cypripediums are found in every Canadian province and many American states. I have a vivid childhood memory of a clump of yellow ones growing in a hedge down the street from us in St. Boniface, Winnipeg ! Now that’s hardy for you ! Ours are in bloom, and are about eight years old. They are (sit down) $75.00 each.
