The last time we attempted to foster a plant, it wasn’t pretty — let’s just say we may be the only people on earth able to kill a cactus (not kidding). And while we’re constantly ogling the pretty, plant-laden decor that fills our favorite local restaurants and boutiques, we aren’t so successful when recreating our own iterations … until now.
We’ve tapped Leigh Okies and Allison Futeral, the adorable twosome behind dreamy Temescal Alley haven Crimson Horticultural Rarities, to show us how to whip up three, easy-as-pie plant DIY projects — charming vertical garden included! Trust, these ladies have the greenest thumbs we’ve seen yet (just take a peek into their flourishing shop and you’ll see how seriously they take the craft). So, if you're ready to get your urban jungle on in a cinch, let’s dig in, shall we?
