Hi guys! As I told you, one of my Summer goals is to put up a nice garden in my house. It's a project that has taken me a month so far and seemingly will last a lot longer, but I'm really enjoying it, so far so good!
This project has two parts, the first one being taking care of the potted plants. It all began when I was given a plant and my dad said "Why would they give you a plant if it's going to die?" On that exact moment, I decided that plant wasn't dying any time soon. I took care of it and put it with my mum's plants, but the other ones looked so bad I decided I would take care of them too.
The first thing I did was visit my grandma. She is 95 and loves plants, so she told me what I had to do with each one. She was really happy to help too, because at her age it's hard to feel useful if you need to have mostly everything done for you. So it was a win-win!
For some of them it was just getting rid of the dry leaves and watering them, but I had to put some in bigger pots, cut off many branches and refill some pots. The cacti were particularly hard! This process took me an afternoon and a morning, but I finally managed to fix all the problems and ended up with a promising selection of plants. Some of them are still damaged, but I think with the right treatment they will end up being as healthy as the otheres. Here's how it looks:
That's it! Have a nice week!
A big big hug,
