Plant of the Day (POD) – Arizona Sun Gaillardia


Today was a slower day, over the last week we’ve been really focused on developing a better user interface and user experience on our website. A lot of late nights and long days, as a result, I took a day off and relaxed. Congratulations to Spain on winning the Euro Cup, undoubtedly the greatest international team ever.

On another note, I did do some work today, put together one of our first Herbal Planters. Funny to think initially I didn’t think people wanted Herbal Planters, but over time due to customer demands we have created one!

This planter is dark stained, with Oregano, Genovese Basil, Mint, Cilantro, Parsley and Thyme, pictures will be up tomorrow.
