Green little plants. “Semi-grasse”

I was showing you how to make pretty flower pots yesterday, here is the finished version with some plants I actually found in a friend’s garden. She let me take them home and I just replanted them, making sure to take all the roots and not cutting them off.

These are called “succulents” in English, “semi-grasses” in French, which means they are half way between a normal house plant and a cactus. I love the feel of the thick filled leaves.

These little guys only need watering about once a week and grow happily on a window ledge, preferably indoors if the climate near you is cooler.

Get your green fingers moving, it’s so therapeutic xxxx
