Terrariums on ‘CBS Sunday Morning’


Terrariums are making a comeback, if 'CBS Sunday Morning' has anything to say about it.   Their story on today's show features long appearances by Tovah Martin and Paula Hayes, and awesome promotion for the Terrain store in Pennsylvania.  Warning: a 30-second commercial is required viewing (and the one I saw tried real hard to make me like BP).

  1. Since I don’t get CBS Sunday Morning, I wasn’t able to see it…but am delighted that my friend and GGW colleague was highlighted. She is super talented…as we all know. Am not surprised about Terrain…I know orignally that they were planning to open a chain of stores throughout the country, like was done with Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, don’t know if that has happen. But they sure did hit a home run with’aspirational gardening’…all the more power to them!

  2. Thank you so much for the mention, Susan, I really appreciate it. We had several children at the Terrain workshop, which put a fulfilling spin on it. Plus, feedback from young people contacting me afterward kept that spin rolling. Several teachers also touched base. We need terrariums right now.
