Description

When it comes to sprucing up your house and health, spending a little green on greens is a worthy investment. It’s not just about improving your indoor aesthetic; even if you don’t normally notice a plant’s presence, seeing a plant can subconsciously make you feel calm and relaxed.

That is until you realise you don’t know how to look after it, the leaves start turning brown and limp, then one day you notice it is past the turning point. Oh well you think, “I've never been good with plants, I can’t even keep a cactus alive” you throw it to the curb and start again with a plastic imposter. 

Never fear, Amy is here and she is going to teach you all you need to know about keeping your indoor plants alive.

You will learn

  • the benefits of having indoor plants
  • the best types of plants to keep indoors
  • the do's and don’ts of indoor gardening
  • how to repot a plant (the right way)
  • how to make your own home made pesticide
