Tough Love

Today I decided to give my old tired pot plants a bit of TLC. Some just got a  gentle trimming and a scoop or two of fresh top soil. Others might not agree to call the way I treated them “tender”, though… Remains to be seen if these survive:

  1. i am thinking they will do fine

  2. Some plants respond better to tough love. I have saved some and lost a few...but my creeping charlie loves to be cut back....then he grows twice as fast.

  3. Will you be putting them on your balcony when the weather gets better? Keep us posted on their progress!

  4. My plants usually get TLC when spring arrives and I can change the soil and wash off the dust outside. They do survive on tough love though, don't they?
    Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  5. They should be fine Monica. I hope so anyway.
