Segment 1: Grilled fruit smores

Remember how fun it is to grill s'mores. Bring back that memory with grilled fruit. Take 10 inch stems of Rosemary that are nice and sturdy. Remove all leaves but the top inch.  Then go ahead add cut slices of fruit such as peaches, apples, and whole grapes and slide them unto the rosemary stem. Then let your guest grill their own skewers in an open fire or on a grill.

Segment 2: Exuberance in a pot

Add life and height to your containers this spring. Since bamboo is ready available and usually free, cut 4 foot pieces preferably the top of the bamboo stocks since they are most pliable. Then create a obelisk in the pot by taking 4 separate clusters of bamboo and arching them to together at the top and then tie them together. Fill the container with colors and flowers for  a spring and summer extravaganza.

Check out the videos for step-by-step instructions! And you can always visit Chris at Botanica Gardens, located at 1601 Rebsamen Park Road, for help on any gardening projects.
