Flower Dots are a simplified planting experience intended to introduce a larger audience to the experience of growing flowers.
Designed in collaboration with a graphic design firm, the tubes feature bold graphics and clear instructions on how, where, and when to plant bulbs. The instructions encourage various in-ground arrangements making participation in landscape design accessible and hands-on.
Flower Dots are for everyone. Dots can be planted in a pot on a balcony or as a part of a large layered bed.

How does a landscape
architecture firm grow an idea?
Flower Dots began as an autum gift to clients and collaborators. In the first year, five varieties of bulbs were selected, each presented in a unique package. Daffodils, tulips and alliums were chosen.
In the second iteration, Flower Dots expanded to include more species and curated pairings. Additionally, a special edition was designed for children.
Flower Dots continue to be distributed as gifts to clients, architects, and other collaborators. This low-cost way to encourage the act of planting holds potential. Plans to expand the collection and to reach an even broader audience are underway.

"...we are human in good part
because of the particular way we
affiliate with other organisms…
To the extent that each person
can feel like a naturalist, the old
excitement of the untrammeled
world will be regained…Splendor
awaits in minute proportions."
