These sweetpeas were cutout from our garden. To get this photo, it wasn't a easy-ride. Maybe you could help?
Must admit I am not a green-finger. I was brought up in the city in Japan and am used to live in a small house with no garden. Now I am living in a sort of country town in North England. It’s only been the last four years that I've actually experienced so-called “gardening”. Anything to do with gardening are all new to me. Plus, I am quite bad at growing any indoor plants. I either forget to water or over-water them and usually end up with killing them. It’s just so easy to look after, you may say. But it’s just so easy to kill them when coming to me. This is how bad I am sadly...
Up until now I was given quite a lot of potted plants on many occasions. Somehow I did the same mistakes and those poor plants looked dried up or no energy, including this white orchid and hydrangea that my mother bought for me when she was over here. So I’ve left the orchid pot in the bedside table and hydrangea in the corner of our garden. For some reasons, maybe due to the lovely summer this year, I have noticed the new green buds were shooting out from “looking-dead” hydrangea and orchid. I was surprised that they have survived for a few years like that! So I located the orchid on to the staircase window sill and replanted hydrangea in a garden pot. Then guess what? They both started to bloom! Oh, how lovely to see your face again, flowers! You must have toughened up by me! Now I enjoy viewing them everyday. Nice to have a sense of living around. They have a magic power to add a positive energy to our soul, don't they?
Sweetpeas are my first trial this year. I love their beautiful scent. I really enjoy having them at home as well as watching them grow in the garden. They seem to flower well after cutting some too.
If you know any tips for keeping them well, please let me before I do wrong again! Your kind advice - much appreciated! (both for me and poor plants!) xm
