As if weeding outside was not enough to keep a gardener busy in spring,
there is also this issue of potted plants.
They need attention now, too.
I pot up house plants before I bring them inside in the fall.
(“Pot up” means that you move a plant into a slightly larger pot.)
I am always amazed how much growth occurs over winter inside
when it seems they are just sitting there waiting for spring.
These were in desperate need of more space and soil.
A plant screams by shriveling, drooping or turning yellow.
Not only have they been potted up and fed some plant food,
they are now enjoying their first pollen-washing downpour.
Don’t they look happy?
