Happy Halloween!

A video idea to steal

without comments

Interiorscape giant Ambius has partnered with eHow to produce a series of educational videos. They’re geared mainly toward DIY-ers, but are a good example of short, punchy videos that quickly explain the value of plants and how they can improve a home or business. You can watch more of Chris and the rest of the Ambius team here.

Plants make sexy gifts

without comments

America in Bloom has produced a series of videos to promote the value of plants as more than just pretty extras. They’re low-budget, and a little low-brow, but they do a great job of getting the point across.

We’re on the road this week. Brian’s in Nashville testing new Ram trucks, and I’m headed out to Chicago to visit Ball Horticulture’s display gardens.

And since country music makes better songs about pick-up trucks than it does about downy mildew, I’ll leave you with the great Tim Hus.

Movie reivew: Watershed

without comments

Special in from Richard Restuccia today is his review of “Watershed,” the latest documentary of water in the American west. Narrated by Robert Redford, the film tells the story of the Colorado River and what the future holds for the most important water resource west of the Mississippi.

Saturday was the film’s Southwest U.S Premier; the sold out event packed The Water Conservation Garden amphitheater at Cuyamaca College. Watershed is one of the best films I have seen about water and definitely hits its goal of making water interesting to consumers. …

This is not only a must-see water management winner, but a great human interest story, too. So if you get a chance to see the movie, I wouldn’t miss it. You don’t have to be a water conservationist to enjoy it.

You can read the full review at ValleyCrest Takes On.
