Recently, the popular TV series, “30 Rock”, bought Silk plants from us to create a green landscape for a scene with guest star, Al Gore.

Autumn Garden Ideas

Monday, November 9th, 2009

To take advantage of the beautiful Autumn weather in New York, we recently visited the “Kiko in the Japanese Autumn Garden” exhibit at the NYBG. We are inspired by the fantastic shapes and colors of the Mums.

As for the rest of the garden, many of the flowers are gone so the foliage and pines come to the foreground. After our visit, we are full of new ideas for our next year’s Silk plant productions. See some of our highlights in our photos!
