Wake Up With Al on the Weather Channel

Peyton and I returned to the Wake Up With Al morning show on the Weather Channel. We love appearing on the show even though it is so early in the morning. If you do not tune into it I highly recommend it. Al Roker and Stephanie Abrams are not only extremely knowledgeable about the weather but are both hilarious too!

This segment we talked about one of my favorite topics small space and container gardening. Most people have soil issues where they live wether its too sandy (me on Cape Cod), rocky, full of clay or whatever else the issue may be. The easy way around this is to plant in containers. This way you can make sure that the soil has all the nutrients that your plants need to grow. 

We had some great products to show off for small space gardening. The Mini farm box is an all cedar raised planter that comes on wheels so once its planted its still easy to move around. The Gardener's Best Grow Bags are a lightweight, colorful planter option. For the beginners out there with no space at all the Urban Jungle Veggie Garden Basket is a great starter kit or gift to bring out someone's inner green thumb. If you are looking for a chic update on the tradition hanging basket look no further than the Zinc Sphere hanging baskets from Terrain. I loved the herb tower from Williams-Sonoma. It can hold 17 small plants so its great to grow a variety of herbs in a small space.
