It’s not really a secret confession because if you follow me on Instagram you probably already know what I’m going to say.
I have a thing for house plants.
It’s taking over my life. I love to look at them, tend to them, propagate them and just spend time potting around with my house plants. I know I’m a weirdo! My slight addiction is not helped by the fact that a fantastic independent plant shop opened up in the village a few months ago.
I’ve always loved house plants and it was something I missed when I moved here. I just couldn’t find anything but those horribly ugly furry begonias. Not being a fan of them and not sure where to buy houseplants I just stopped looking. Well looks like Plants are the new black and they’re making a comeback or it might just be the perceptive set in that now that I have a local plant dealer I’m noticing house plants all around me- I somehow doubt it 🙂
There’s something that happens to a house when you add plants to it- almost a heartbeat. I know corny!
I’ve also started to propagate some of my little succulents. I ordered my first succulents online a few years ago and they were starting to look a bit leggy. I figured they were dying so what the hell I’d give it a go and I’m happy to say they look fabulous and I’ve given some away as gifts.
