Me and plants is just not the perfect combination. Every time I try again and I keep finding myself giving up after a few months looking at the horrible state my plants are in.

I wish to make things better and just found this book Me & My Plant (which you can download here) via Mieke Willems and her new (very inspiring) website. Luckily our new home will have lots and lots of light and the rest is up to me.

I also recently discovered via First of August there is ‘plant shelter’ for neglected plants. Rachelle, the initiator of the ‘plantshelter’ will take care of all your dried out, sad, ugly plants to make them healthy again!
