Rolling Greens Takes Round Top Texas

If you follow us on Instagram you might have noticed our most recent trip to Round Top Texas. Round Top offers the most amazing Antique Fairs throughout the year where you'll find an irresistible array of beautifully displayed very early Americana, Texas primitive, and Continental furniture and accessories. If there's one thing we love more than plants it's antiques - so you know we had to be there!

A trip to Texas wouldn't be complete without staying at a dreamy ranch. Our team stayed at the beautiful Silver Spur Ranch where they began gathering inspiration from all around.

Now to the good stuff! Check out what we brought back with us:

Lots and lots of planters - because why not?

Quarried in Belgium, the base color of honed Belgian Bluestone is a very dark and smoky indigo blue with fossils and hints of charcoal grey.

Clear to milky white crystal geodes - a perfect little sparkle to your space. 

Beautiful South American Manta Rugs with both neutral + vibrant color pallets.

Make sure to stop by both locations and shop all new Texas products - available now!

A couple weeks ago, we had the pleasure of co-hosting a special brunch event with The Lucini Italia Company at our Beverly location. Lucini's passion for creating authentic, handcrafted gourmet foods made this collaboration extra special for us!

We transformed the exterior succulents beds and patio at our Beverly location by positioning a beautiful dining table and chairs by Found Rentals in the space. The dining room table was blooming with beautiful florals from our store and dish + glassware from Dish Wish.

Wisteria at Rolling Greens

There’s no mistaking the sweet fragrance of wisteria as it perfumes our garden in the Spring. Its beautiful large, drooping clusters of vibrant violet-blue blooms bring life to any space, and we couldn't be more excited to have it in-stores!

How to grow + care Wisteria 

Pick the perfect spot

  • Open, well-drained, deep areas are ideal.
  • Make sure it receives plenty of sunlight.
  • Wisteria requires little watering since this vine is drought tolerant.
  • Plant in the Spring or Fall.
  • Dig a hole as deep as the root ball and two to three times as wide. Space plants ten to fifteen feet apart.

Ongoing Care 

  • Apply a layer of compost under the plant each spring, followed by a 2-inch layer of mulch to retain moisture and control weeds.
  • To control growth and encourage flowering, prune wisteria after flowering in early summer by cutting side shoots that arise from main stems back to 6 inches.
  • In fall, shorten these same laterals back to 2 to 4 buds. Remove shoots arising from the base of the plant as soon as they appear.
  • Pruning wisteria is key!

Shop our selection of Wisteria - available at both our Culver City and Los Angeles locations!

#GatherWithRG: Spring 2017

Building a community and partnering with local creatives is something our whole team is super passionate about, so we couldn't have been more excited to join everyone together for a beautiful brunch over the weekend!

We first began with setting up our Beverly location by transforming our arrangement bar into an intimate space. Our friends at Sweetgreen catered a sustainably curated brunch as we kicked off the morning with a mimosa bar and sweets by Whisk & Whittle!

Obviously, a Spring event wouldn't be complete without fresh florals! As our friends arrived, we each created our own unique bouquet and began to mingle with everyone. It was great seeing familiar faces and meeting new amazing creatives.

We had such a wonderful morning celebrating with creativity and are already planning the next event! Thanks to all of our friends and partners for celebrating with us. To see more from our gatherings check out our hashtag #gatherwithrg on Instagram!

Perfectly Cooked Poultry with Anya Fernald of Belcampo

Grilling season is almost here and we're excited to have been able to learn about all things chicken from the one and only Anya Fernald, CEO/Co-Founder of Belcampo

We had the pleasure of hosting an event with the Belcampo team at our nursery where we learned the difference between a Belcampo chicken and an ordinary market chicken. Can you tell the difference? Belcampo takes an old-fashioned approach to meat. They raise it on their own land, process it in their own facility, cut it by hand in their own butcher shops, and make sure every bite of meat you have is the best you've ever had! 

The perfect topping: Salsa Verde

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 bunch Italian parsely
  • 1 small bunch of fresh basil
  • 4 anchovy sillets
  • 3/4 cups of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cups of capers
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Take Root
saturday.jpg

It is with excitement that we bring you our new seminar series - Take Root! Lead by Co-Owner Greg Salmeri, this design-based series allows you to learn the tips and tools to managing and crafting your own garden and home Rolling Greens-style.

With Greg's guidance and the help of our specialists, you can have an intimate look into what inspires us every day. This weekend, Greg lead us in an Instagram takeover in which he introduced the series, discussed his plant favorites, his garden abode in Laguna, and how finding beauty in unexpected places shapes the lifestyle + brand of Rolling Greens.

This year we will be offering four seminars with brunch catered by our friends SWEETGREEN - a wonderful destination for seasonal, simple and healthy food. Each seminar will be uniquely different and will reflect upon the seasons, holidays and culture in which we live. The seminars will not only be informational, with demos by Greg and exclusive Q&As with our plant specialists, but they will also allow you to take a piece of what you have learned with you, whether that be your own mini potted plant, arrangement, or tools.

Our first seminar - Farm to Table: Urban Veggie Gardens - will be on March 12 at our Los Angeles location and will feature how to grow an herb + veggie garden in your own home and will cover topics such as what to plant and where to plant your garden!

For those of you interested in participating in multiple seminars, we will be offering a special bundle package to help you save - 4 seminars for $300! We can't wait to have you share in our new exciting developments and we hope to see you there!
