While it would be easy to grab a few potted plants from Home Depot and call it a day, the flowers I really love dont come that way, or come at a high price point. So I meandered through the aisles with my cart, looking for Hollyhock, Dahlia, Zinnia and Gladiolus seeds and bulbs that I could plant. I also came home with Tulips and Poppies, and a few pedestrian-looking terra cotta pots and planters which I have since painted.
There is something fun and relaxing about getting your hands in the dirt and planting something that starts as a tiny seed and blossoms into flowers resembling the beauties above. I hope I still feel this way after months of tending to my little pots.
Do you have a green thumb? Any gardening advice for this newbie?
