Until not too long ago I considered myself as being quite green fingered, however lately instead of "green fingers" I've earned the title of “death fingers” in the house due to the plant situation. Every plant in my care turns yellow and eventually goes to that big garden centre in the sky. I can't think what it is, over watering, under watering? Time of the year? Who knows. Maybe I need to talk to them more... Would they understand me though?
I've even got a cactus which isn't doing too well. Aren't cacti immortal? In the right hands maybe. I'm considering getting some artificial plants, although I've never been too keen on those. I think you can get some which are convincing though.
...Poor plant. Forza!
On a brighter note, I bought a new cactus last week with a flower on it which is looking good. I can't decide if the flower is real or not, especially as it's still alive.
Also I've planted some basil seeds which are doing well. The first few weeks they seemed to be growing each day, but now they seem to have slowed down... Fingers crossed. Here they are:
Hopefully it won't be too long until they're in the ragu. Sssshhh! Don't tell them that.
