KEEPING IT GREEN
Winter can always be a difficult season to get through — the days are short and the weather can be bleak. It can be hard to keep a lot of plants alive, and a lot of the time, you don’t want to be outside watering plants and tending to a garden in the cold winter weather!
But there is something you can do to overcome the dreariness — dress-up your home with some gorgeous interior greenery.
A great choice is a fern, or a few ferns; they add a lovely soft texture to any area.
Maintenance is straight forward — trim stray fronds, remove any brown bits — they are best placed in indirect light and need to be watered whenever the top of the soil is dry to touch.
Succulents are great options — they are like mini sculptures with many different shapes and textures.
They are easy to care for, they need direct light, well draining soil that can easily dry between watering. These are also great for children for these ease of care. You can find so many beautiful varieties, even at local farmers’ markets.
Look into what suits your family and grab some for winter.
