October 2013 picks for the Gardener

ORGANICALLY INCLINED Local entrepreneur Matt Pfeilstucker loved the idea of creating a mini potted garden with succulents. So he decided to make his own pots from recycled molds and a mix of concrete, perlite and peat moss. The result is PeaboPots—durable, lightweight, porous containers that are ideal for growing low-water-use plants. Available pre-planted and in various sizes and shapes, they can be found at For the People at Union Biltmore, Biltmore Fashion Park, Phoenix, shopbiltmore.com/union, or peabopots.com.

CHIME-A-LOT Fans of Woodstock Chimes will appreciate the gentle tinkling sound produced by the Moonlight Waves Wind Chime. Made with 34 antiqued copper-plated steel disks and an ash hanger finished in black, the outdoor piece offers a lyrical version of waves coming ashore. Measuring 34" long, it can be found at woodstockchimes.com.
SOLAR POWERED Energized by the sun and aglow by night, the Mint Solar Tea Lantern sets a romantic mood in the garden. The hand-blown glass light with steel handle utilizes a “warm white” LED with a sensor that activates at dusk. It measures 61/2"H by 5"W and comes in various colorations.
