Self Help for Plants

We expect a lot from our plants ~ nourishment, clean air, beauty ~ and sometimes they need a little help. To be their best, to live up to their full potential. A crutch for a sagging limb, a net so they don't fall, a trellis to support their climb. Self Help introduces new works by Smalltown designed to give our plants a helping hand
