The Easter Bunny got into my plants!

Want to add some colour to your plants this easter? Try adding easter eggs! Decorating easter eggs can be a fun family activity and a great way to express creativity, one egg at a time. This weekend we spent some time decorating eggs using crayon shavings and food colouring. The results were lots of colour and personality. Add your eggs to some basic plants for some easter fun.Easter-Decorating

Extending the life of holiday plants

Just because the holidays are over, doesn’t necessarily mean your plants are over too. If you are looking to keep your plants for awhile longer, here are some quick tips:

  • Cut off any dead leaves or branches. A bit of grooming will allow the plant to focus its energy on the living parts.
  • If it’s been the centrepiece of your table, move it to a window sill to give it lots of light. As well as top up with water when needed.
  • Try some plant food. Sometimes adding some plant food to their diet, can give the boost they need.
  • Adjust their pot. If you have multiple plants sharing the same pot, you may want to consider replanting them into their own pots to give them the space they need to grow.

Hope these tips allow your plants to flourish well beyond the holidays.
