I've always wanted a garden.
I've only lived in apartments since becoming a grownup.
So I had plants, in little pots. And I've learned I have a black thumb. I've killed many an orchid, African violet, baby Arica palm, and even a cactus!
But I still want a garden! And I'm determined to find something that won't kill my chances of getting my full security deposit back and that our precious-yet-giant doggy can't attack!
And then I found this on Re-Nest [Apartment Therapy's wonderful spinoff for green living]:
It's a Simple Garden, and it can grow anywhere! And not die!
And one day, when I can prove I haven't killed anything, and when I get a yard, I can have my flower garden.
Do you have a green thumb or a black thumb? What would be your best advice for a beginner gardener?
