Such cleverness: a hanging lemon tree...


Isn't this one of the most fun ideas? 
A living lemon tree, the roots carefully wrapped in a moss ball,
suspended rather more as sculpture than as horticulture.
It's by the imaginative Jenna Spence,
who makes and sells other fabulous hanging plants too through her store Mister Moss in Melbourne. 


Absolutely love Jenna's Christmas trees,
also wrapped in a moss ball and then bound with string.
I have been pondering what sort of a tree to have this year, 
and think this may be quite the ticket. 

Now I cannot grow Kangaroo Paws for love nor money.
(Think I smother them with love, kindness or maybe just water. 
Whatever.
It always ends tragically. For the Kangaroo Paws.)
But maybe, this version may work. Even for me.

Apparently you just dunk them in water once a week and they are good to go.

The lemon tree is in her own home, 
and you can see more, and discover more about Jenna on the inimitable Design Files here
