Soul, Soil and Sun

With this constant state of snow accumulation, it’s time to crank up the tunes and put in a mixer of soul, soil and sun. While swaying to the beat, this is a perfect weekend to size up your indoor plants’ living quarters and soil conditions. With the heat blasting and the dust flying, you may think that watering is enough to tend to these indoor companions. If you are anything like me, changing the pot size, the soil or even giving the extra shot of fert is often overlooked. With chilly temps predicted for the weekend, outdoor activities could be limited. It's time to give those indoor plants a little extra TLC.

P.S. In the case of this Begonia, ‘Phoe’s Cleo’, moving it to another window recently produced a blossom.

So in the words of Meister Eckhart, “What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.” It’s the season for contemplating. There’s plenty of catch-up gardening time in the spring.
