As the Holidays approach, the senses are overwhelmed with the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of Christmas. It’s amazing how many of these flavors are plant-related: from the Evergreen Christmas trees in living rooms to the cinnamon and cloves in christmas cookies, the Golden Cedar wreaths and the Mistletoe. As the weather turns crisp and icy outdoors, we bring in the outside cheer with boughs of Holly, Poinsettias, Pinecones and Eucalyptus branches. The relationship between festive plants and Christmas go way back (if you’re curious here’s a neat article on Chrismas’ horticultural heritage).
Here at Woolly, we like to keep these green traditions ALIVE– both figuratively and literally, so we keep our Evergreens alive and cozy all year ’round in Tinas, Lanas and Steves. Our Poinsettias come wall-ready: they’re nice and cozy in Wally and the Holiday cheer lives on and on…
From our green homes to yours…we wish you a lush, lively, woollyful Holiday!

As Thanksgiving approaches, aromas of rosemary, sweet basil, cloves, sage, majoram and nutmeg waft to mind. Fresh herbs and spices are a quintessential part of any Thanksgiving feast, so instead of buying sad little herbs in plastic boxes at the grocery store this Thanksgiving, grow your own! Use the herbs to cook your fresh herb stuffing, your herb-roasted turkey (or Tofurky), your gravies, salads and pies and then, use the herbs as edible centerpieces to enjoy and celebrate the harvest during the meal as well– doesn’t that sound herbalicious? What are you growing for Thanksgiving this year?
