Never give up on plants!
I hate throwing plants away so when my wife Jill was about to throw a small foliage plant into the compost heap recently, I decided to rescue it. It’s a small spathiphyllum, or peace lily, that was on a windowsill in a spare room, and sadly neglected! The plant has a healthy root system, but is starved, so to save it I’m removing all the old yellow and dead foliage by cutting it back to pot level. Only the green, healthy leaves will be left. To encourage new growth, I’m pointing it into a slightly larger pot and if kept moist and in a light, warm position, it should recover and make some new growth over autumn.
