DIY Kokedama String Garden: Guest Post by ProFlowers

Hello Everyone! Today I have something a little different for you – a rather unique guest post on how to make a DIY Kokedama String Garden by Taylor Poppmeier from ProFlowers (disclosure:  this is NOT a sponsored post).

I rarely accept guest posts, but when Taylor – who has previously contributed to the blog (see How To Repot A Plant) – approached me about sharing this ancient Japanese string garden DIY, I was more than a little intrigued!  And I’ll tell you why. There is something so casual, so delicate, and so beautifully unstructured in this lovely little garden DIY that I think it would look so pretty in almost any room of the home.

So, if you’re ready to get your green vibe on (even for those black thumbs among us!), read on to find out how to make your very own Kokedama String Garden.


DIY Kokedama String Garden

It’s time to take your green thumb to new heights!

Kokedama string gardens are a centuries old Japanese art form where a plant’s roots are wrapped in moss, bound by string and suspended. With deep roots in Japanese tradition, this string garden’s natural aesthetic and simplicity make for a clear decor element for just about any space. These natural pieces are making their way back into the modern decor scene and we are loving every bit of it!

Whether you’re looking to add visual interest to your living space, bedroom or bathroom a string garden might be just what you need. The best part is, a kokedama is probably a lot easier to make than you might think. To help you create your own, ProFlowers put together a step-by-step DIY kokedama string garden tutorial. Let’s get started!

    I love kokedama’s we have quite a few in our garden and they’re almost maintenance free which is such a bargain. I haven’t actually tried them inside but I might just bring a few indoors and see how they do. Loved these super clear instructions on how to make your own. Some of the garden centres here charge a fortune for them
