Post holidays are my FAVORITE time to pick up new plants. While I’m a bad plant mommy, I KNOW there are others that are out there who are FAR worse. I picked up these sorry looking plants last night for only a couple of dollars. The others were “dead-dead.” These are only “half-dead.” 🙂 These are the fighters, the plants that TRIED to survive in a department store setting, minus sunshine, water, and any care whatsoever.
Over the years, I’ve pick up a BUNCH of these abused misfits and stuck them in my garden. They’re ugly now, but give them a week or two in the ground, and they should pop back up, better than ever. I have trouble growing “healthy” plants, the ones that were babied and treated right from the start. These new guys will forgive me if I forget to water them or if I stick them in an iffy location.
They won’t know I’m a bad plant mommy! 🙂
Have a great day!
