Pot ‘um Up; Move ‘um Out

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?
