Marg Hutton

Marg is the brains (and the green fingers) behind going Potty with Marg.

Marg creates succulent and cacti arrangements in a variety of individual and often quirky pots.

These mini gardens are very resilient making them a perfect gift for someone with a busy lifestyle (don't we all!?)

Marg goes to a lot of trouble selecting the plants, which she propagates and grows herself, matching them with suitable pots.
Sometimes she enhances the arrangement with stones or figurines.

Marg will be bringing a large range of her potted creations to Mountain Makers next week, so be sure to check out her display.

You'd be potty not to!

Idle Hands are Imogen and Amber ...and they make stuff!

Such varied and wonderful stuff!

Their aim is to use quality supplies of Australian origin where possible.

And to be as green as possible - by the use of recycled and upcycled supplies.

And to create everything with love and care.

And it sure shows!
