I have many friends who use houseplants to decorate their house. I have tried to do this, but I just kill them off after about a month. I know it can’t be that hard to keep a plant alive. I decided to do some research on houseplants.
I know….winter just got here. For me, it’s research time. Having a new deck has me excited with thoughts of what plants I can plant around it. I can see it now….glass of ice tea, crochet hooks, yarn, and the glorious scents of my garden!
Have you ever seen a cactus or succulent? Do you know what the terms mean? They essentially are coined for plants with water storing capabilities that are adapted to survive extreme drought. These are most often seen in places like Lowes or Home Depot during the spring, summer, and fall months.
I have a lot of trees around my yard, so I have a lot of shade. Unfortunately, many of my favorite plants want full sun. Landscaping is a challenge, to say the least. One can only grow so many hostas and ferns before one gets bored. I have noticed that in recent years, there have been many new plant introductions for shady areas, so apparently I’m not the only one with this particular problem.
