My Nemesis Plant

Check me out at Happy to be at Home . I am writing about taking care of my mom:-)
You see this:

This is new growth on my poinsettia plant! The one plant that I have not been able to keep. The one plant I was not going to try. And here it is with new growth!! Yeah me:-)

Now, let's see if I can keep it alive. Cross your fingers for me (or your green thumbs:-)

Gardening Thursday

We had such great weather this weekend however is too early in the season to do anything outside. It did inspire me to get my spring plants ready.

I didn't get as much done this weekend on my indoor garden as I wanted to. I was able to repot my five pots of impatiens. That is what you see here under the grow light. Once they have re-established in the new soil, I will prune off the leggy looking portion so the healthy new growth will come through.

I also repotted 2 ferns (not pictured here). Next week, I have got to get my seedlings transplanted into bigger pots and start some new ones. A gardeners work is never done:-)

Test seeds
