New houseplant project I am thinking about getting started.


By Scotkat


I was browsing in one of my houseplant books when it was raining bad yesterday.

And saw this lovely collection of houseplants planted as 1.

So as you see in garden centres they sometimes have small potted houseplants.

Want to pot them in a round pan but this would need drainage holes.

Then look nice old bowl for them to grow in my conservatory.

Thought this would look nice all potted up.

I am starting to build up my collection again of houseplants.

If it's going to keep on raining maybe we should all join you in doing some indoor gardening! I look forward to seeing you finished result.

This is going to be a mini garden ,but to grow indoors instead of out.

Hopefully so get started ,I may even see if Dobbies have large Bonsai deep bonsai dishes ,that would look nice for my mini garden.

I'm not much good with houseplants. My garden gets lots of TLC but my houseplants get a bit neglected, don't know why really. Only got 2 now and they were daughters' rejects needing a home. They're both big and do make the room 'come alive'. Enjoy your project.

Today its very wet so shall take chance and put houseplants out in the rain for a shower.

Never did find a deep big dish to plant mini houseplants but have built up house plants

Not so say if I come across a deep dish I shall go ahead with my project.
