10 Conversations You Should have with your Plants!
As a parent and chief of the Glen Ivy Gardens I want to express the importance of clear communication. My children behave better when I clearly state my expectations of them and so do my plants. You only get one shot at raising them so providing them with a loving and well-defined foundation is very important. With this in mind, here are my expert tips for a few conversations you should absolutely have with your plants:
Don’t drink too much - Water is so important and it’s a drought year.
Choose your friends wisely - That cactus is gonna get you into trouble!
What’s that noise your listening to? – Country builds character so turn down that punk rock.
You can’t be seen in that! - Terra cotta is classic and suits you much better; that plastic pot isn’t fit for a plant as beautiful as you.
Eat your vegetables - There are carrots in your compost and they are good for your eyes.
Get plenty of exercise - You don’t want to grow up with weak limbs, do you?
Respect your elders - That’s an old growth forest, you know.
Do your homework - You will be tested on biology.
Cleanliness is next to godliness - Stay out of the mud!
Are you feeling okay? You’re looking a little green. - Good for you!
