I've always told people "I cannot keep plants alive." And, maybe at one time, it was true.
Basil is one of those herbs used in many recipes to add some delicious flavor. But what does it do for our bodies?
Guinea Pig bedding can get expensive; especially when you have to change it at least once per week. My daughter figured this out quickly and researched other bedding options for her Guinea Pig.
Does anyone else have a countless number of empty food cans, plastic containers, milk jugs or even wine bottles under their kitchen sink? No? Just me?
After doing a little reading, I've concluded that my basil plant most likely will die...BUT, I can still reap the benefits of my basil plant by harvesting it and drying some leaves to use later.
I have tried to get my backyard looking beautiful by planting perennials for about nine years now (since we bought our house).
Plants outgrow their pots. Well...if they don't die first (am I right?). I think about the next pot before it's even time to repot it.
Once I began splitting my Peace Lily, I realized the roots were super tough and I actually required scissors to help the process.
The question "does talking to your plants help them grow?" has been around for a long time.
Buy your plant, find a cute pot for it, squeeze it out of the growing pot, pack it into new soil and water, water, water...right? Not completely!
