Going Green on Gardenista: Top 5 Trending Posts This Week

Julie Carlson November 15, 2013

This past week, Gardenista’s issue theme was “Love Letter to the Houseplant.” Erin and Michelle explored the history of indoor greenery, sussed out the best exterior green paints, visited a greenhouse restaurant in England, and discovered the new “it” plant (hint: it’s not the fiddle head fig).

Above: See the nine exterior green paints that made the cut when Meredith surveyed our Architect and Designer Directory in Architects Pick the Best Exterior Green Paints.

Above: Some of us at Remodelista, when faced with gardening obstacles (read: vermin and insects), tend to give up entirely. Which is why we have Erin Boyle to help us out; see her tips on Getting Rid of Fungus Gnats. And curious what the next “It” houseplant is? See Erin’s pick here.

Above: Apple Flip cocktail anyone? Kendra explored the offerings in the Ethicurean Cookbook, new from the team behind the Ethicurean restaurant in Somerset, England.

Above: “I hate houseplants. I mean, really hate them,” Meredith writes in Houseplants for a Hater. So how did she learn to love houseplants?

Above: Amanda explored the evolution of indoor greenery in 5 Houseplants That Changed History.  

Above: See the Woven Hanging Pot that made Julie rethink living with a hanging plant.
