Do you know what else other than good smells puts us in a good mood? Nature. Whether you’re sad or stressed (or having a writer’s block), a walk in the park can make you feel better.

Another way to connect with nature is to have your own garden at home! You can pick up some tips at The Plant Story’s Miniature Garden Workshop.

Happy weekend all! We have been busy workshopping. Today, we hosted Garrick & Fiona and Chu Mei & Greg at our WorkStudio as they chose to create a Rainforest Garden in Paulownia jar and the Water Garden in Tempo jar respectively. They are reeeeaaallly good with great eyes for aesthetics! Special shoutout to Chu Mei for being our ardent supporter to have attended our workshops at HortPark, Marina Bay and now at our WorkStudio! That would make her one of our longest-supporting customer and her gardens are still doing really well! Thanks for the privilege to serve you once again and congrats to your new phase of life with Greg, the guy who prefers to grow useful plants he can consume 😉 Thanks for the loving afternoon spent. 🙏
