Everyone knows this little phrase, but let me fill you in on a secret … I DON’T have one.
My mother thinks she has failed me (she has flowers practically coming out of her ears) … and my dad is a corn farmer for heaven’s sake! But I couldn’t keep a plant alive if you paid me.
However, I came across this cute planter idea and I think one day when I have a home, I could give something like this a try!
The article on Urban Gardens (http://www.urbangardensweb.com/2011/07/15/cinderfellas-vertical-garden-planter/) went onto say that the designer used metal screens glued to the bottom of the blocks to keep in the dirt.
Instead of cacti like this Californian did, I would probably use these…
Because let’s face it, I bleed purple, and when and if I ever find my “green thumb” I’ll use it to spread wildcat cheer!
