Step-by-Step Making the Perfect Garden Hose Wreath Into the Perfect Holiday Present

Are you looking for the perfect gift for that perfect garden fanatic, your perfect landscaper, or just plain anyone on your list that can’t stand their old garden hose?  This post was originally written by the wonderful Jennifer Shanley.  The post is so popular that I it’s become Perfect Garden Hose tradition to share it in the beginning of December, and this is year three!! If you’ve seen the post three years in a row my apologies, but for any new readers you must let me know if you try it.  So back by popular demand, here’s how to make your own Perfect Garden Hose Wreath.

First, get your Perfect Garden Hose at on of these great retailers.  Our 50′ Perfect Garden hose is available in blue, red, green, beige, grey & pink.  Obviously we recommend using the green color for your Perfect Wreath.

Next, carefully remove the packaging from your hose. But, hang on to it so you can show your lucky recipient that this is no ordinary garden hose!

Once you’ve removed the packaging use a two-inch ribbon in the color of your choice (we used Red with gold trim), tie the ribbon around The Perfect Garden Hose and secure with a knot. This knot will not show once you have applied your bow.           

Next, start at knot and carefully wind your ribbon around your Perfect Garden Hose, leaving one to two-inches of space between the ribbon for it to show through.

After you have wrapped the ribbon all of the way around the hose, tie the end of the ribbon to the original knot at the top.  Make a bow or buy an existing one to fasten onto the original knot at the top with floral wiring. To learn how to create your own perfect bow, click here. Trim the ends of your bow to the desired lengths, and add your own personal touches such as pine cones, greenery, lights, ornaments, etc…

Finally, hang your Perfect Garden Hose Wreath indoors, outside or present as the Perfect Holiday Gift.

Attracting Birds During the Winter Months

It's Mid-November, and it's time to start thinking about our backyard feathered friends.  I already have my resident Cardinals "yelling" at me in the morning because the feeder is empty, so I've got to get going myself.  By now the shelves at your local hardware or big box should be stocked to the gills with bird seed.  I suggest taking a weekend to see if you can identify what kind of birds take up residency in your yard for the winter and purchasing your birdseed accordingly.  However if you don't have the time you can always buy a blend that will accommodate just about any bird.  If there are birds that you'd like to see search out what kind of seed(s) or food will attract them, and try to attract them.  I've outlined some tips on attracting, and taking care of your yard birds below.

Overwintering Geraniums Redux

I originally wrote this post a couple of Autmuns ago, but it's just one of those posts that I think deserves a yearly redux. Last year I added about six geraniums to my overwinting project, and all six did great and will be overwintered once again this year.  Not only does overwintering save your geraniums from the compost heap, but it saves you money as well!

Landscaping & Clean-up Tips for Fall

Since it's the first day of fall I thought it would be appropriate for a fall post, even though I'm really not ready to let summer go.  However, I happen love fall in the garden, I use the cooler temps for large projects I've planned and when I clean up I tend to really clean up.  I always feel the more I clean in the fall, the better my gardens look in the spring & summer.  That said I wanted to share a few of my fall landscaping tips, including cleaning up.
