My Verandah hosts pop-up garden for Christmas
While we’re well versed in the language of pop-up shops, a new pop-up garden has hooked our green thumb’s attention. Run by landscape architect and outdoor stylist Johanna MacMinn, My Verandah is a residential garden design company, which helps shape outdoor pockets into green oases. While Johanna can usually be found pairing furniture and made-to-measure cushions with vertical gardens and potted greenery to create outdoor living rooms during the week, she’s paired up with the folk at Inspiring Beauty Medispa and Hidden Secrets Hair Salon in Toowong to transform the skinny space between the two buildings into a thriving pop-up garden. Aeriums, moss balls, vertical gardens, hanging planters and Pantone pots dot the outdoor cranny, with many a cacti, fern, succulent and floral foliage ready to be draped in ribbon and given as a gift for Christmas.

137 Sylvan Road, Toowong
