Green Thumb Sunday


There was a population explosion among my African violets this summer. Almost every pot is in violation of official occupancy restrictions.

Just one problem. If I split everyone up, then I don’t have enough room to accommodate all the new pots. Once more, the outdoor plant stand has been pressed into service.

My poor aloe, on the other hand, is in dire need of larger accommodations. It has become so top heavy that it constantly falls over, breaking or injuring its branches.

A larger and heavier pot should prevent any further flopping.

Gardeners, Plant and Nature lovers can join in every Sunday, visit As the Garden Grows for more information.

Lovely violets! Do you use blooming fertilizer and vitamins?
