    • I love to grow anything.  Houseplants, vegetables, flowers, you name it.

    • If I had a backyard, I would have a vegetable garden and a grape vine, but I don’t so my kitchen window looks like a jungle with all my houseplants. I have Purple Passions in the kitchen and bedroom, a Wandering Jew that’s hogging all the space, an African Violet (gives me purple & white flowers), a Christmas Cactus (gives me pale pink tinged with yellow flowers), several peanut cacti in glass mason jars that came from one over 15 years old, bamboo almost 3 feet high and I placed a few grape seeds in a container to see if I can get it to grow indoors like I did a few years ago. I mentioned on another thread that I bought my first orchid (it’s a tiny one) and so far, so good, if it survives I’ll get a big one.

    • I love flowers, so I am getting back into my house plants seeing I don’t have a home with a yard at the present moment.

    • herbs are the only thing I can grow recently.  Oh and cactus.  The yard is doing well but I am trying to learn how to do better and stop having a brown thumb.

    • Yes, as of right now I am taking a garden class to help me with the volunteering that I’ll be part of in May.  I love to grow everything, from houseplants to perennials, herbs, annuals, shrubs..right now hub and I put in our first small pond and we put in our pond plants from last year..if you have a pond plant, you remove it from the pond in mid to late fall (depending on the region you live in) clean off the algae and just plant it right into a bed of soil outside, container and all..you can trim off any loose or dead leaves and it will stay dormant all winter...come spring, pull out the container from the dirt, clean up the outside and place right back into the pond..this way it will continuously grow and a good form of recycling.estatic

    • Don’t you love your Christmas cactus, kyah?  I have one in an urn in my bedroom window and believe it or not, it has bloomed 3 times since last fall.  Crazy, but lovely.
      I live in the country and my garden is actually bigger than my home.  It is fenced to keep out the deer and I grow lots of perennials,herbs,roses and yeah, some stuff to eat during the summer.  I love my roses and lavenders and raspberries and the tulips are just starting to pop up.  Can’t wait to dig in the dirt

    • I love to grow pretty much anything.  I planted numerous herbs this year with 11 tomatoe plants, cucumbers, bell peppers (red & yellow).  Our roses are doing beautifully!  The Islander newspaper actually took pictures to publish in next month’s paper.  Plus I planted 6 packs of zinnia seeds and they are doing great.  I love to plant them every year so I can just walk downstairs and cut fresh flowers and bring em up to the table.

    • I’m not so good with indoor plants but I love hostas. I have many varieties all over the yard. I also do great with shrubs and various flowers I plant outside. I also like to plant tomatoes.
