I have many different talents (yes, thank you, thank you very much), but planting and keeping flowers alive has never been one of them. I do not have a green thumb. But what I do have is a unique ability to kill every single plant I have ever come in contact with. So my 'green thumb' is more of a yellowish-brown color, you could say.
You see, when we first moved into our new house last April, I tried and tried to keep previous owner's blooming beauties alive. (they were stunning) But, no luck. My flower killing spree just continued.
two thumbs down.
I’ve tried indoor flowers, flowers that require little water, flowers that need very little shade — the list goes on and on. They always start out healthy, but then the plant dies on me. The problem is though, I love flowers and refuse to give up. Although I may be singlehandedly wiping out entire populations of plants, I am not yet ready to let it go.
However, to make things even worse, my lovely other half was a landscaper in another life time. I promise you this! He’s just a natural. He keeps our lawn perfectly manicured and mows the grass about 12 times a week. He has even offered to help me. However, I refuse to surrender and will not let him take over! I will and can do this on my own.
So please help me turn the tide on my plant killing days. Any words of advice from the professionals out there would be helpful and very much appreciated! I want a pretty little yard with pretty littttle flowers :(
