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!

Learn + Grow Darling Duo Workshop

On Sunday, February 12, we brought Valentine's Day to Rolling Greens with our learn + grow Darling Duo Workshop. Mothers and their daughters, friends, couples and plant-lovers arrived at our LA location, ready to take on the day. Our special guests and hosts included Jaclyn Johnson, founder of online entrepreneurial platform Create & Cultivate, and her fiancé David. 

Our wonderful amenities from our event included refreshing drinks from our sponsor, Caliwater, originators of the prickly pear cactus-based beverage, sweet, colorful treats from bakeshop Sweet & Divine by Emmaline and a mini mani bar provided by Can Can Parleur, an organic boutique spa.

Our mission was to bring our participants together while educating them on the basics of planting their own succulent arrangements. Lead by our crafty Arrangement Bar Baristas, the workshop included one container, two 4" and 3" succulents, tools, soil, gravel and a topper. Those that arrived individually received one container while couples were able to take home a matching duo of arrangements to display side-by-side.

Participants were first instructed to place soil at the bottom of their containers in preparation for adding in the succulents. Each succulent was to be removed from its original pot, and roots cleaned of excess soil. The succulents were then planted into the soil, one by one, and topped with gravel and moss. The gravel and moss both held the succulents in place and doubled as unique, modern decorative elements. When necessary, miniature wire clippings were used to hold the moss in place, and tools such as metal clippers were used to remove any dead leaves or excess root material from the arrangements. Lastly, any leftover debris on the arrangements was carefully removed with compressed air and brushes.

Our guests left with their hearts, bellies and arrangements full. Brimming with fresh succulents, no arrangement was entirely alike with so many different varieties to choose from. It was a pleasure inviting our participants to our space, where they could celebrate their love and creativity, make new friends, and explore their passion for crafting and gardening. We look forward to having you join our next workshop - stay tuned for our March announcement!

Valentine's Day Gifting

This year at our Los Angeles location we are offering a plethora of Valentine's Day gifting options including fresh flower bouquets, grab-n-go arrangements from the Arrangement Bar and more! Whether you are searching for the perfect way to share your love with your special someone or simply treating yourself, our unique selection will bring convenience, brightness and taste to your memorable holiday experience.

FRESH FLOWERS

Our gorgeous, hand-crafted fresh flower bouquets come in a variety of sizes and styles - from small-large - in hand-tied bundles or fitted within our signature vases. The components of these bouquets include a base, made with decorative plants such as Tree Ferns or Achacea Tree Blossoms, and the focal flower elements, of which you would find Proteas, Spray Roses, Ranunculus Flowers and Anemones. These eye-catching, bright and aromatic flowers are interspersed among the base layer until a full bouquet is completed. The base elements really allow each bouquet to develop its fullness, as they are layered delicately upon one another by our expert Baristas. Because each bouquet is handmade, no two fresh flower arrangements at Rolling Greens are alike. It is with this personal touch that we are able to share our own love for plants and crafting in the garden and home with you and the people you love.

SIMPLE PLEASURES

Our Valentine's Day themed cards from stationary and lifestyle brand Rifle Paper Co. add a particularly sweet and handwritten touch to any gifting selection. These die-cut flat notes include a colorful, calligraphic illustration on the front of the card, with plenty of room to write on the back. Additionally, these cards can be repurposed as stand-alone art pieces to be placed decoratively throughout your home, even after the holiday is over!

GRAB-N-GO ARRANGEMENTS

Our readymade cacti and succulent arrangements provide a long-lasting and stylish alternative to fresh flowers. Paired with our bright, pastel containers, they highlight the essence and colors of spring and present beautifully as a collection when staged together. Our featured Hoya Kerri plant, also known as the Sweetheart or Valentine plant, is distinguished by its thick, succulent-like leaves that are shaped like hearts. The Hoya speaks where words fail - it is beautiful in its simplicity and a unique find that is guaranteed to tug at the heartstrings!

Ask any of our Baristas at our Los Angeles location about our fresh flowers and arrangements and find your perfect match today. It is with great excitement that we bring you our Valentine's Day gifting options and we look forward to spreading the love from our Rolling Greens family to yours!

Roses: The Edible Gift

Roses are red, violets are blue…you can have your bouquet, and eat it too! This Valentine’s Day surprise your loved one with an aromatic treat prepared with roses, because nothing is more romantic than a dinner cooked from the heart, or perhaps.. from their repurposed gift!

Here at Rolling Greens we have been recently very inspired by the ways in which we could use greens, flowers and spices in cooking, baking and mixology! We believe that our gorgeous blooms don’t just help make your garden a home - they make your kitchen a home too! And so, today we are featuring one of our current favorite cookbooks, Dandelion & Quince, to share all the ways in which you can use roses for your culinary needs!

ABOUT DANDELION & QUINCE

As described so eloquently by author Michelle McKenzie, this book pays homage to the things not so commonly found in your fridge or spice rack:

"Strolling through your local farmers' market or grocery store, you're familiar with the standard produce--the autumn kale and heirloom apples, the eagerly awaited peaches and tomatoes of high summer--and you know how to make the most of them. But what about the nettles, kumquats, green garlic, and quince? For those of you with a curious palate there is a world of beautifully simple yet overlooked ingredients to be discovered and enjoyed. Think Farro with Persimmons, Arugula, and Pancetta-Fried Hazelnuts; Chicken Thighs Braised with Fig Leaves. Dandelion & Quince is a lavishly illustrated cookbook and field guide for bringing the diversity of edible plant life into your kitchen and onto your plate."

This brings us to... our wonderful rose recipes!

THE ROSES YOU NEED

- Seasons: Spring and summer are the seasons to seek fresh roses.

- Year-Round Buys: Dried petals can be purchased year-round from specialty markets, tea shops, and online.

- Types: Choose unsprayed and fragrant blooms.

- Care: Keep the flowers in a vase of water, and pull the petals as needed.

HOW TO USE THEM

- Teas: Add fresh or dried petals to herbal tea or combine them with black tea leaves.

- Dip: Make a classic Middle Eastern dip - Combine plain sheep's milk yogurt with minced garlic, a pinch of dried mint, finely chopped Persian cucumber, soaked currants, and salt; garnish with olive oil, more currants, dried mint, and dried rose petals.

- Spice: Make Almond Picada, but add soaked, dried rose petals and chile; serve with grilled lamb and/or vegetables.

- Dough: Finely crush the petals and add to pastry or shortbread dough; the addition is especially welcome in maamoul, a Middle Eastern cookie stuffed with pureed dates.

- Sweets: Steep petals in warm heavy cream, then strain. The rose cream can be used for ganache, truffles, anna cotta, and creme brûlée. 

- Syrup: Steep petals in simple syrup, then strain. The rose syrup can be used to make sorbets (especially good with strawberry, rhubarb, or raspberry), lemonade, and poached fruit.

FEATURED RECIPE: BLACKBERRY, RYE + ROSE CAKE

Ingredients (Makes 8 Servings)

- 7 ounces unsalted butter at room temperature, plus more for greasing the pan
- 2 tablespoons dried rose petals
- About one cup (8 ounces) granulated sugar
- About 1 1/2 cups (10 ounces) blackberries
-  6 large eggs
- 2 1/2 cups (10 ounces) almond flour
- 3/4 cup (4 ounces) rye flour
- 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 batch Whipped Creme Fraiche

Steps

1) Line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper; butter it liberally. For cakes that have thick batters, the easiest way to line a springform pan is take a square of parchment and lay it across the base of the separated pan. Simply clasp the springform round on top (there will be an overhang, and that's fine). This method ensures that you can spread the batter evenly across the base of the pan without a circle of parchment moving around.

2) Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Crush the rose petals with 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar using a mortar and pestle. Toss the blackberries with 2 tablespoons of the rose sugar in a small bowl, then crush into a coarse puree using the tines of a fork (pieces of fruit should still be discernible).

3) Combine the butter and remaining sugar in a food processor, and pulse until combined. Whisk together the eggs and add them to the processor; pulse to combine.

4) Whisk together the almond flour, rye flour, sea salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the food processor, and pulse until the batter is thoroughly mixed, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.

5) Spread one third of the batter into the prepared pan, then gently spoon the crushed blackberries on top. Carefully spread the remaining batter over the blackberries. Scatter the rest of the rose sugar on top (you may not use it all). Bake until the cake has set and turned a deep golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely before unfolding and slicing. Serve with whipped creme fraiche. Store the leftover cake covered at room temperature for up to three days.

That's all it takes! Rye flour is dark, earthy, and a little funky, but the blackberries and rose petals really life and balance those qualities. The result is a cake that is as unique as it is harmonious!

If you enjoyed this recipe, Dandelion & Quince has a plethora of unique and fun-to-make culinary experiments that you're bound to dig into - sweet, savory, and everything in between! Our vast cookbook collection in our pantry department continues to blossom, along with all else in our store! Stop by our Los Angeles location today to take your pick from our selection!

We hope your Valentine's Day is nice and rosy!

Southern CA Winter Blooms

April showers have come early this year and have left our Culver City location ripe with flowers and greenery of all colors, shapes and sizes! Our eight greenhouses are now brimming with exterior plants, cacti, succulents, and exotic plants that are ready to find a home.

We also carry a wide selection of desert plants, flowering shrubs, grasses and trees ideal for landscape use. In addition, our colorful and thoughtfully-selected outdoor arrangements perfectly compliment any outdoor garden!

Today we are featuring our favorite picks from this expansive collection! See below for an inventory:

CACTI + SUCCULENTS

The Pilosocereus Pachycladus

The Pilosocereus Pachycladus

- The Pilosocereus Pachycladus is a bright, wooly blue cactus with spires. This spectacular cactus originates from Brazil and is particularly unique for its hue! It grows in a columnar-like fashion and can grow up to 10 meters tall!  

Agave Attenuata

Agave Attenuata

Agave Attenuate are slow-growing succulents that can reach a height of up to 5 feet! Their green leaves clump together at the base and they bloom a gorgeous yellow flower stalk during the summer. At Rolling Greens we carry lots of different kinds of agave that range in color, shape and size!

The spikes of orange-yellow flowers are from the Aloe Cameronii (Starfish Aloe). They sit in front of a bed of Kalanchoe Beharensis (Zig-Zag Felt Plants), and in background is an arrangement of Agave Attenuata (Fox Tail Agave) + Echeveria 'Perle Von Nürnberg' blossoms.

- The Aloe Cameronii (Starfish Aloe) get its name from its spiky texture. If you were to look down at a group of these aloes from above, it would appear as though you were looking down into the water at a giant starfish! Their leaves can turn completely red during the winter, or when they are especially dry. As you can see, they really pop when contrasted against lush greenery.

- Kalanchoe Beharensis (Zig-Zag Felt Plants) are a type of succulent and they are particularly unique as so, for their huge, scalloped leaves. These leaves can grow up to a foot in length and are covered in a soft layer of felt. They thrive best outdoors where they can achieve the most sunlight, but can be grown indoors in a large container where they can receive the greatest exposure to light.

Notice how we have incorporated the stunning Agave Attentua + Echeveria blossom arrangement in the background into a vintage birdbath!

OUR OUTDOOR ARRANGEMENTS

Succulent Arrangement: Clockwise from the top: Cotyledon Orbiculata v. Oblonga (Long Fingers), Echeveria 'Blue Curls', Kalanchoe Tomentosa (Panda Plant), Crassula Ovata ‘Hobbit’ (Hobbit Jade)

Succulent Arrangement: Clockwise from the top: Cotyledon Orbiculata v. Oblonga (Long Fingers), Echeveria 'Blue Curls', Kalanchoe Tomentosa (Panda Plant), Crassula Ovata ‘Hobbit’ (Hobbit Jade)

- Cotyledon Orbiculata v. Oblonga (Long Fingers), otherwise known as Grey Sticks or 'Purple' Chalk Fingers are eye-catching due to their peculiar shape, but are also distinguished by their blue-grey silvery leaves that typically clump together. They are easy, low maintenance and drought resistant. We love using them in our outdoor arrangements for an added touch of texture and personality!

- Echeveria 'Blue Curls' are native to the desert areas of Central America. They boast a stunning variety of colors, but primarily appear as a rosette with frilly evergreen leaves that have pink-hued edges. 

- Kalanchoe Tomentosa (Panda Plant) is part of the succulent plant species. It grows thick leaves for water-storage purposes - which means less watering for you! The velvety leaves grow in a rosette shape and are covered in bristle-like hairs. A unique and handsome plant, they appear primarily silvery-blue with the exception of their edges which are a burnt orange/chocolatey brown color. 

- Crassula Ovata 'Hobbit' (Hobbit Jade) are shrubby, small succulents with leaves that curl back into a spoon-like shape and have reddish tips! They look great in rock gardens and outdoor arrangements! 

Succulent Arrangement: An Echeveria 'Perle Von Nürnberg' blossom nestled in between Portulacaria Afra 'Variegata' (Rainbow Bush) on the right and Senecio Radicans (Sting of Fishhooks) to the left.

Succulent Arrangement: An Echeveria 'Perle Von Nürnberg' blossom nestled in between Portulacaria Afra 'Variegata' (Rainbow Bush) on the right and Senecio Radicans (Sting of Fishhooks) to the left.

- Echeveria 'Perle Von Nürnberg' is a beautiful rosette-forming succulent that has powdery-grey leaves with central pink highlights. Make sure to give your Echeveria lots of light and prune any dead leaves from the bottom as it grows, as their dead leaves can make a wonderful home for lots of mean bugs!

- Portulacaria Afra 'Variegata' (Rainbow Bush) has short, shrubby leaves that grow on a thick, reddish-brown, almost tree-like stem. Fun fact: They are also known as "Elephant Bushes" because they are a popular native food for elephants in Africa! These are easily manageable for those who don't have much of a green thumb as well. All they really need is some light and a bit of weekly watering.  

- Senecio Radicans (Sting of Fishhooks) can grow a trail up to four feet in length! There's no stopping these babies - they'll grow and grow! They look great indoors, but as you can see, they work perfectly in an outdoor arrangement as well! How do you care for these in California weather? Bright shade is the way to go.

VINES + MORE 

Bougainvillea vines

Bougainvillea vines

Bougainvilleas are flowering vines and they are a versatile plant. They can be trained on a trellis or made so that they spread vertically up a wall or off the roofing of your home! They make a wonderful accent to any landscape with their purplish-pink flowers. Keep them in lots of light and sun for at least six hours a day and watch them as they spread! They are guaranteed to grab lots of "Oohs" and "Ahhs" from any visitor.

Euphorbia (Not pictured) are flowering plants that are part of the Spurge genus. They range from tiny succulents to evergreen shrubs. Ask us about the variety of colors and sizes that we carry!

A FINAL SHOUTOUT

The products in our exterior gardens are thoughtfully selected, and very rich in their colors and textures! As you can see, our outdoor arrangements range in size and selection and come uniquely planted in our array of pots. Our freestanding greenery, cacti, succulents, vines and even our arrangements work best cohesively in an outdoor landscape environment!

Our exterior team maintains these selections very well and with lots of care! They are also very knowledgeable and very helpful in selecting plants, so don't hesitate to ask a member of our Rolling Greens team how we can help make your outdoor garden fantasies a reality.

Stop by our Culver City location Monday-Friday from 7:30am-4pm to make your selection today!

La Poterie De La Madeleine

This week we are featuring our gorgeous French Anduze pottery by La Poterie De La Madeline. The design of this pottery dates back to the early 1700's and originated in the Cevennes region of France. We have brought these illustrious symbols of French tradition and design to both of our locations and we couldn't be more excited!

Created by potters inspired by the Medicis, this pottery is iconic to French garden decor. Vincent and Guillaume Bimar started manufacturing their famous La Poterie De La Madeleine pottery back in the '80's. Their family is passionately involved in this ancestral trade that encompasses both tradition and modernity. It is a process that is true to history!

And as they have for hundreds of years, these beautiful pots are embellished by handcrafted garlands and medallions emblematizing the towns from which they originated. This year, along with the staple designs and colors, we have a beautiful selection of new natural finishes and modern silhouettes!

Our managing parters Greg + Laurie and our Creative Director Angela Hicks have been traveling to France for years shopping and buying pottery pieces. It is through their travels that Rolling Greens' relationship with La Poterie was formed, and so, each year we bring you the best that they have to offer, imported directly from their factory in Anduze, France.

The grandeur, craftsmanship and size of these elegant pots is truly something to behold. They make a stunning accent to any garden or home, and are guaranteed to become a part of your family tradition to pass on to the next generation. Stop by our Culver and Beverly locations to experience them for yourself!

All About Oxygenating Plants

Oxygenating plants are a great way to bring the greenery and freshness of the outdoors into your home. Whether you are using these plants as a statement piece in your living room or adding more variety to a developing indoor plantscape, you can expect these babies to grow! The Arafia Fabian Stump, the Philodendron Selloum, the Sansevieria and the Lipstick Plant are some of Rolling Greens' favorites- and they are all different in their origins and appearance! Read below for more information on what makes each of these so unique!

Aralia Fabian Stump
The Aralia Fabian Stump is a tropical, woody plant that grows upright in a column-like fashion with leaves that are green on top and maroon on the underside. The word "stump" in this plant's name refers to its final height- one that usually reaches about 3-4 feet! While they do flourish best closest to the window, where they can be exposed to the greatest degree of warmth and light, they only need minimal watering because of their small roots system. This plant's unique structure will add an innovative touch to your interior plantscape!

Philodendron Selloum
The Philodendron family boasts many stunning and voluminous plants, but the selloum is often overlooked! While this plant is native to South America, it also grows outdoors on the East and Gulf coasts. Indoors, the selloum can grow and take up to 5 feet of space with their beautiful green leaves! These plants love bright, indirect light and moist soil and are generally easy to care for. Please be aware they are toxic to pets BUT are good for the environment and remove formaldehyde from the air!

Sansevieria
Sansevieria, also commonly referred to as a "Snake Plant" or "Mother-in-Law's Tongue," are a part of the lily family. Their appearances are characterized by a very thick and beautiful spear-like structure. Sansevieria top the list as being one of the best indoor plants as they don't require a great amount of light and are very low maintenance - generally, you only need to water them every 2-3 weeks! In addition, sansevieria remove at least 107 known air pollutants from the air including carbon monoxide, nitrogen monoxide, formaldehyde, and chloroform. They produce copious amounts of oxygen during the night, making them a great choice for your bedroom!

While all of our favorites do oxygenate the air, it is the Sansevieria and the Philodendron that are most well known for their toxin-removal properties!

Aeschynanthus Radicans
Aeschynanthus Radicans, more commonly known as Lipstick Plants, have thick, glossy leaves that grow in pairs along their long, woody stems. As they bloom in the summer, each vine unveils clusters of tubular, scarlet red flowers that look like lipsticks-- hence their famed name! Because of their immense volume, these Indonesian plants are grown most commonly in hanging baskets, but can be trained to climb up trees as well. These plants take low light levels and dry conditions with ease!

We're not the only ones who are spreading our love for oxygenating plants! We have been very fortunate to have a growing Rolling Greens community that has continued to incorporate variations of these oxygenated plants into their home! Read more below.

Hanging Button Fern + Dracaena
Both of these plants are perfect for indoors as they help clear the air of toxics. Ferns are easy to care for, but can be tricky if they receive too much light and not enough water. Hanging your ferns in a well-lit corner with a hanging planter is a perfect way to put those ferns on display! Dracaena's are hearty plants that do very well in low light and low maintenance conditions. Their darker leaves pair well with a white container that will make the plant the star of the show.

Sansevieria
So nice, we wrote about them twice! Sansevieria are making a HUGE statement right now. With their variety of colors, they can fit into any color palette, and their stunning, tower-like shape make them design incredibly design-forward and trendy. If you're extremely modern, pair them with concrete or minimalist black/white containers. As an alternative option, to soften their shape, we like to put our sansevieria into baskets, as seen in the photo. You can find these baskets at Rolling Greens in black or red!

Ficus Benjamina
These plants have been flying off of our shelves this year! With their bright leaves and uniquely-curved tree trunks, Ficus Benjamins stand as a unique and elegant indoor tree option! If you seem to have trouble taking care of the popular ficus lyrata (fiddle leaf fig), these plants stand as a great alternative. We love displaying the Ficus Benjamin in large neutral containers, decorated with mood moss. In addition from their gorgeous shape, these plants do a wonderful job at cleansing airborne formaldehyde, xylene and toluene.

Satin Pothos
Satin Pothos function beautifully as hanging plants! With their velvety, speckled leaves, they blend seamlessly into any decor. They can tolerate lower light levels, humidity and much cooler temperatures than other plants and are one of the top plants for ridding the air of toxins. We suggest keeping these beauties in a hanging planter or on a high shelf where their cascading tendrils can be admired!

Ficus Robusta
Ficus Robusta, also commonly referred to as Rubber Plants, are another indoor low-maintenance option. These plants are incredibly resilient, thrive in a number of conditions, and are a great starting option for those who are looking into purchasing their first plant. With the proper care, they can grow up to 8 feet! Additionally, they improve air quality by converting carbon dioxide into breathable oxygen. We recommend displaying rubber plants in modern, concrete containers - pick out your own at Rolling Greens!

We have enjoyed sharing our knowledge about oxygenating plants with you today and admiring all the ways in which you have styled them in your living spaces! Stop by our Culver City and LA locations today to shop our plethora of selections, and don't forget to tag your indoor plant photos with #RGatHome for a chance to be featured!

#GATHERWITHRG: WINTER
unspecified.jpg

Our Holiday Gather event was magical! Hosted in our very own Los Angeles location, we transformed our pantry isle into a wintery wreath-making spectacle! 

This year we had the pleasure of welcoming a variety of new creatives into the Rolling Greens family and we are so thankful to have had our many sponsors help us in making this event possible! 

unspecified-4.jpg

We began by arranging our tablespread near our beautiful frosted Christmas tree in our pantry section. On our tables we placed our candles, glistening ornaments and lush, handcrafted arrangements that smelled just like Christmas! We made sure that our tables were as bright as our tree, especially with the beautiful patterned napkins provided by Local and Lejos!

At 6pm our creatives channeled in and enjoyed fruity crafted cocktails made with Rekorderlig Cider, and made their way to our mini wreath workshop set-up! There we provided wooden wreath frames, fresh greens, flowers and beautiful ribbons that were customized by the gorgeous calligraphy of Nicole Miyuki. Phrases like "Cheer" became a common favorite at the hand lettering station!

After our wreaths were made, we all sat down to enjoy a delicious warm meal provided by Stir Market! We topped off our gathering with a beautiful cake from Whisk and Whittle- the candied berries and frosting were executed on the spot! 

unspecified-10.jpg

With our tummies full, wreaths made, and lots to be grateful for, we ended our gather celebration with treats to take home- hand-painted ornaments from Nicole Miyuki with the names of all of our creatives!

We are so happy to have ended this year with such a beautiful event, and we can't wait to see what next year's #GatherwithRG will have in store! Thanks again to all those who attended and to all of our sponsors! Happy Holidays!
