Snake Plants

We get it. Fluorescent lighting doesn’t always bode well for the psyche. Between washing out your complexion and straining your eyes, the eerie florescent glow can be downright harsh.

If winter cabin fever has struck and you find yourself daydreaming of gardening outdoors in the warm spring sunlight, wait no longer. While we can’t bottle up the sun and swap its light out for those darn fluorescent tubes, we can dish out some indoor thriving plants that will help brighten up your day.

We all have that neighborhood friend who lives down the street. They’re your afternoon buddy, they make you late for dinner and are a part of your earliest memories. Here at Fossil Creek Nursery, we too have a neighborhood bud who lives right next to us, but instead of playing basketball together, we create and perfect handcrafted landscapes.

The holidays come and go, as does the life of your Christmas tree. Before you kick them to the crib, consider one of these reduce, reuse, recycle options for your tree this season!

The Pine Needles

They’re the most iconic plant of the season and sometimes the most finicky to care for. December 12th marks National Poinsettia Day, so we’re here to give the holiday how-to on all things poinsettia!

Now that we’ve moved to the season for indoor gardens and plants, we’d like to give you our expert advice at all things indoor plants. Even after your plant purchase from our nursery, we care about the condition and quality of our products. Post-purchase care often involves repotting, watering, pruning and even reading. That being said, there are all kind of studies out there about a plant’s response to sounds.

We’re here to settle the myth once and for all: plants like being talked, read and sang to.
