Recipe for an Unhealthy Indoor Environment
Serves Chokes one
3 c. dog hair
2 lb. dust
Repeated inhalation of cleaning product fumes
Dash of gourd mold (ditch that pumpkin!)
Clear the air with wintertime container gardening from Artefact Home Garden.
Your refreshing jolt of cold-weather chlorophyll begins with an aesthetic consult from co-owners (and sisters) Maureen and Sue Walsh, who pop by your home to assess your color scheme.
The two creatives kick up dirt with heretical designs, mixing up vegetables and herbs alongside indoor-thriving tropical orchids and Mediterranean olive trees. Brown thumbs exhale over their hearty moss and succulent terrariums, while horticulturists spring for perennial arrangements that can be scooted onto the patio come May.
Customers cherry-pick from a hothouse of containers (vintage iron urns, oversize glass carafes, carved wooden bowls); reuse-recycle types are also welcome to unearth their own planters.
Available at Artefact Home Garden, 1000 Pleasant Street, Belmont (617-993-3347), $50 and up.
