Herb Pruning

Where did all the rain go? We had the best spring ever! It rained so much, I really never had to water our flower & herb gardens. However, now it’s dry and hot out there!

The hour before it gets dark is not quite as hot…so, I ventured out to prune the herbs. (and any plants that were out-of-control)

When I have all the extra clippings…I usually bring them inside to make little bouquets. This time, I made one big centerpiece.

This one includes, silver mound, pineapple sage, chives, sage, and dusty miller. You may be able to tell, but I do adore the silvery tone plants :)

I arranged the clippings in a large jar a placed it into this vintage bucket. (the bucket is for sale HERE in our ONLINE SHOP)

Of course, my sweet Jovi B had to be a photo bomber :)

And that’s how I use my clippings from pruning the garden :) How about you?

Do you make bouquets out of left-over clippings too?

I never like to trim my herbs because I feel like they look like they went to the salon and got a bad haircut! So I let them grow and they look wild. I do like your bucket! The silvery herbs are my favorite too.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.

Of course I love the pail. Everything in your home looks so refreshing. I'm sure your home smells beautiful now too!

We had a summer just like yours...rain, rain and more rain and in the last two weeks hot and dry. Been watering to keep things going. A beautiful bouquet!
