‘Planting Dreams…Or Just Plants’

If you haven’t heard of ‘The Creative Collective’ yet, go and check out this link here! The latest activity on the list is ‘Planting Dreams…Or Just Plants’. The idea behind it is to encourage you to go to a farmers market or large plant store. Buy one plant that inspires you, along with one plain pot. Do as much research on your plant species as you can. Then care for it and watch how your research gives it a full life. Alternatively, you could buy a bag of seeds instead.

So last weekend off I headed to local garden centre. I have to state I have none, I mean less than zero gardening experience, and I can’t even keep a house plant alive. However, always up for a challenge and an excuse to enjoy the recent gorgeous weather I decided to throw caution to the wind and have a go!
I decided to buy a mix of already grown plants and some seeds. I have to admit I found the whole experience quite therapeutic and really enjoyed planting my seeds and decanting my plants into their pots.
I think I am most excited to see what happens with my seeds, if they grow and what they will eventually look like! I went for sunflowers and a mixed seed pack of wild flowers.
Keep your fingers crossed for me that they spring to life!
