Once again, I have asked the question, “Why Not?”
The results this time is a tree in the house!
This past year for my birthday a friend of mine gave me a Magnolia Tree. She told me it was root bound and needed some TLC. So when I got it home I put it in a big pot with some great soil and TLC’ed it all summer long. It was looking so good with new shiny leaves. When the cold hit I just didn’t have the heart to let it stay out there and freeze. So, while my husband was tired and in a moment of weakness, I asked him to bring it in. What looked like a small tree outside is now a rather large house plant.
A little added surprise……. there was some leftover Impatiens in the pot and now they are sprouting new leaves. I wonder if they will go into full bloom? Oh, maybe the tree itself will bloom. That would be really cool.
I also have another plant that I am trying to make live forever. It’s a Poinsettia that I got at Christmas last year. I’ve been told that I have to put it in total darkness in order to make it bloom. I will be sure to share the results when that happens.
