Hi Everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! This little area in our dining room has brought me so much joy. Just a quick tour. I love NY Topiary and their selection of myrtle. I also have shopped from Bella Vintage Home for topiary. The Orchid was from the super market! My favorite pots are all Wakefield Handmade. http://www.wakefieldhandmade.com and if you use code “howsitgrowing” you can save 10% on your order. Not sponsored, I just adore his work, he’s a great friend and such a massive talent. He has an amazing new line out right now taking Spring pre-orders.
Myrtle love tons of water, tons of light. Orchids, sparing water, good light. I’m totally new to citrus, so we will see what happens, but I absolutely love my propagation from Brandon Lark Roberts, he’s my dearest friend (http://www.instagram.com/brandonlarkroberts) and I smile every time I look at it.
Glancing at this area and seeing gifted pine cones from my friend Kerrie, little decorations that are vintage and were well loved by others, it just all speaks to me. I am so excited to introduce you to our little man Baxter too. He’s just the best boy and we are thrilled he is part of our family! I hope you enjoyed this video and I’ll be back very soon showing you my plans for planting under my grow lights and winter sowing as well.

How’s It Growing?
Thanks for watching everyone. Orchids are new for me. I promise I won’t be watering with an ice cube, so please, disregard that point as I have had many helpful viewers tell me it’s a bad idea! 🤗
Baxter is the sweetest! And your myrtles are enviable. I don’t dare try them because I’m far too neglectful for them to be happy. Happy belated birthday!
LOVE that pot on the kitchen table! What size is it, Laura?
Lovely……I have a vision of being there
Always wanted to grow a lemon tree think I'll try it now. Like your topiaries. I have a ponytail palm ( Guatamalian) don't like the other kinds. Do you have to cut the bottom and sides of the soil to keep them small? Thinking about doing that to my palm. Love your little puppy. So sweet! 💗TFS
Lil Baxter is precious!!!
Long time no see. Happy belated Birthday Laura 🌹! Baxter has some interesting markings. Could be mistaken for a squirrel or a ferret from a distance 👀 I'm sure your boys are enjoying him too!
How do you keep your amyrillis from leaning?
I need a pot overhaul…mine don’t work well together at all. Your set up looks so natural and welcoming. And Baxter is adorable!!
Is that the grandfather clock chiming? Is it a wind up?
I was all in love with those myrtle until I saw BAXTER! 😍😍😍
I’m in love with Baxter and it’s such a joy to hear you. Been a tough holiday season here but a new year is now upon us. God bless.
I love your videos! Thanks for coming in to share your dining room with us. BTW,I have an almost 10 year old fur baby. He's a rescue and I don't really know his breed but he looks like Toto from The Wizard of Oz. His name is Baxter!
Laura, your home is always so lovely & charming. I love your details & your plants are pristine! How do you do it?! Thank you so much for sharing. Baxter is aaaadorable & I love his haircut! Happy bday🤩
Everything is just beautiful! You have such great ideas. Congrats on your new little guy and happy belated birthday!😊
Everything looks great even Baxter but I missed your signature…a little bee 🐝 😉 Happy New Year Laura
I love the comment of a potting shed in your dining room. So cozy and lovely. I am thrilled you love your little Tamarak cones..you use them in just perfect little ways. Thank you for sharing today❤
No ice cubes! They are tropical plants, this can cause stress to roots. Just pu them in water for 10 minutes every two weeks and thats it.
Everything is beautiful. If I may offer some advice for your orchid. Orchids are epiphytes and do not want to be potted in soil. Phalaenopsis should be potted up in a bark mix or bark and moss mix (sphagnum) for good air circulation to the roots. It will grow perfectly in your beautiful orchid pot with the lightweight bark mix.
Omg your new pup is precious! Love this video! Thanks!
Baxter has a racing stripe down his back, just like my Ruby! Very special❣️
Looking beautiful Laura! Thanks for the tour!
Happy belated birthday Laura and thks for this video, lovely to see your plant display and baxter is very cute. The wakefield pots are very unique, wish we could get them here in Ontario, Canada.
Hi Laura and hello Baxter it’s so nice to meet you. I love your dough box. My mom has one just like it.
Hi Laura, belated Happy birthday. Baxter is so adorable. Love all your plants and your topiaries are lovely.
