I do not have a green thumb.
But still, come spring I find myself developing hope of suddenly becoming the true garden-mummy every plant and flower deserves. A garden-mummy that will tend to their juicy green needs, water them regularly, bring them too shady safety as soon as it gets too hot for their delicate petals to bear. The woman all neighbours will envy for my beautiful provence-like balcony.
Picking out the flowers is no problem and repotting them, but they never survive longer than a month with me as their nurturer.
Every year it’s so depressing and such a waste of money…
Except for my Bonsai.
My little IKEA-Bonsai has been with me for 4 years and never let me down. The little one has hardly ever shed a brown leaf and remains a beautiful shape throughout its green life.
This is my favourite and at the moment only plant I keep in my living room.
Such an eye catcher as well!
Well ok maybe not to all guests who enter… but definitely for me…it’s proud owner.
What flowers do you keep that won’t let me down easily?
Any advice for me?
