Southeast Portland
About Me:
I am a small business owner here in Portland. My company is Moreschi Container Gardens which basically builds planted flower arrangements for various customers. We also care for indoor plants for companies who love the idea of plants, but simply cannot keep them alive themselves. But before all of this takes place, I am a mother of two lovely children. My son has autism and we chose to look at it as a blessing because he is so smart. My daughter has decided she is a roller derby princess with brains so she keep me on my toes, and when I am not running my company or being a chauffeur, I am usually catching up on some sleep.
What do you love about Portland?
I love the possibilities that Portland provides. There is so much to see and do here, and it is all sort of weird, which feels like home.
My music:
I am truely unbiased. I appriciate everything.
Favorite quote:
"When life hands you lemons, make lemonade."

Hanging baskets & Containers

Have you ever bought an empty hanging basket, potting soil and two or three plants to go in it, then you patiently watch it grow, but it never really fills out like those you buy at nursery's? Here's the trick...

Oregon Slugs

Slugs....Yes, some of you may think they are cute...but they have a way of making sure you have no foliage in your garden. They also really like your vegetables, and there is nothing like looking forward to a salad in the summer and going out to pick your fresh greens only to find a thousand tiny chunks missing from each and every leaf. Missing leaves I can handle with only a little irritation, it's the poop they leave behind that seals the non-edible deal. As exciting as this may sound,…

This Weekend in the Garden

  Well...the rain has got to stop sometime, and rumor has it that this weekend is a possibility for some outdoor fun. So put on your gardening shoes and lets talk plants. I am hopeful that you have already spread some of your perfectly winter-long composted material over your vegetable garden. If not, it's not too late. No tilling yet though, you will just end up with clumps of dirt. I like to spread out the compost and let it sit on top of the soil for a few weeks before I start sifting it…
