A New Perspective…

We are still very much inspired by Boskke’s Sky Planters ability to defy gravity and 
change our perspective on gardening!
– – – 
Just a few reasons why YOU need one OR more Sky Planter(s) in your life.
Reason 1 / SAVE SPACE
Rather than wasting precious space on the ground, Sky Planters utilize the ceiling space – giving you the ability to grown an indoor garden without having to make any sacrifices to your living space.
Reason 2 / PURIFY YOUR AIR
Increase well being and concentration by surrounding yourself with natures natural purifiers. 
Emitting oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide are what plants do best, so leave it to them.
Reason 3 / CONSERVE WATER

Most potted plants lose water through evaporation and drainage. Boskke Sky Planters are equipped with unique reservoir feeds water gradually to the plant’s roots. Genius!

Reason 4 / THEY LOOK AWESOME
Honestly we can’t get enough of these super cool planters. They are awesome.

We have just received a top up of these – but get in quick.
Shop in-store or online here.

 

Destination: Toronto

In honour of Canada Day we thought we would share a glimpse into one of our favourite Canadian cities, the metropolitan hub – Toronto.


YOU HAVE TO VISIT/

Toronto itself is a massive melting pot of style, cultures and scenery. There really is something for everyone. Segmented into ‘neighbourhoods’, each offering a different array of cuisine, fashion, services and sights to see – here are some of our favourite MUST SEE neighbourhoods in the city of Toronto.

Luckily for us pictures are worth a thousand words – and thanks to Toronto based photographer Sam Javanrouh we have compiled an amazing array of photos to showcase the electric city itself.
