How to grow and care for thyme. There are many species of thyme, and growing them is incredibly easy. Learn all about the plant here!
My first Six on Saturday post! Featuring philodendrons, Billy Balls, Daffodils, and the inevitable LA smog.
Looking back at the whole year – the lockdowns have had some changes. More plants at home, and definitely going outdoors more often to get some fresh air!
Finally putting the old daffodil bulbs back in some dirt (only a month late…), revitalizing some old dirt on the balcony, and sewing some Billy Buttons at the right time of year.
The Ginkgo is currently most threatened not by disease or the environment, but by logging. Our homes are our own environments. We get a say at what survives, and can even help plants thrive that otherwise might be disappearing.
After a few store-bought daffodil planters died at home, the dirt lay neglected in a bag on the balcony. Somehow, the daffodils have come back. I’m so excited.
I’ve had a bad habit of watering my plants every 2 to 3 days – when the top layer of dirt was just starting to dry out. I just never followed proper watering techniques – letting some plants dry out a bit more, flushing the soil, and the like.
We try to rescue the strawberries from a cramped life of fruitlessness. And, the olive tree finally shows a problem. Is it fixable?
Ever since I’ve put these peppers in, the majority of the fruit have been quite small.
I want to know why!
