Welcome to Natural Accents

Sharon Haines

 

I work with all natural materials:  dried and/or preserved grains, grasses pods, cones, herbs, everlastings, flowers, fruits, vegetables and wild materials.  Methods of preservation include air-drying, glycerin treatment of fresh materials, dyeing, bleaching and using a food dehydrator.

I start seedlings in flats under fluorescent tubes in the basement in early spring.  As they grow, I move them to the cold frame and later into my 1 1/2 acres of gardens.  I also purchase exotic, unusual and hard to grow natural materials from around the world.
