My Interest in Gardening
I love gardening for these
1. I love to water my plants and
look them up on my computer at home.
2. I love the smell of my flowers
3. I love to dry my flowers and
4. I love to pot my plants.
I love to water my plants whenever
they need it (at least 1 time a week). I water them all including cactus, spider plants,
primrose, English ivy, gloxinia and others. I also love to look up my flowers and plants
on my computer in the "Better Homes and Gardening" CD for in instructions; on
caring for them, buying them, plants and flowers for different seasons, and what to
"spray" and how to spray them. I love to spray plants and I think most of them
like to be sprayed.
I also love the smells my flowers
and plants give off. Some are in bloom for all seasons (although they ALL do best in the
spring and summer). I can, at different seasons, buy them, by looking in my computer. I
love to dry flowers and plants and hang them upside down for decorations. I recently
learned to dry flowers. When they are ready I wrap them in thread and hang them upside
Finally, I love to pot my plants
and flowers. When stems fall off I immediately put them in a glass of water, and when they
are ready (by that I mean the stems are ready) I repot them. Some live and some die (the
cactus usually die and also my herbs usually die too). But the ones that live, I repot.
I also love to pot flowers and
plants in season. (I tried bulbs but they didnt live.) I buy flowers and plants on
sale (usually) or I get them as gifts (as in Valentines Day, my birthday, Saint
Patricks Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Halloween or just in general) and as gifts from
my father, older brothers, and friends.
In all, my interest in plants and
flowers keeps growing! Unfortunately, I am not allowed to have outdoor plants or flowers
because my apartment doesnt allow it. I hope to soon try again with herbs and bulbs.
I hope to someday try my luck with vegetables too!
I love my plants and flowers and
they are all a growing interest to me!!
