So here it is, the first of 12 (!) teacher gifts i must make this year...it needs to grow. I put moss on top of the soil, and put in a sunny place, and try to feed every day, so the flowers will come on. I will try to remember to post a photo in a week or so, hopefully, the petunias and Sweet William, begonias and marigolds and such will survive and become colorful. This is the part i am not good at - making the stuff grow. Oh well.
How to make these pods, as well as information about gathering and processing greenbriar was published in Backwoods Magazine, November/December 2008, in an article I wrote titled "Random Weave Greenbrier." Back Issues are available on the Backwoods Magazine website.
