I don't have greenfingers. And I mean that both literally and figuratively. When I was little my Mum tried to encourage me to grow things. She picked the simplest thing she could think of. Mint. So I had my mint and I had my little bit of earth. On the first day when I had to actually plant the Mint, I found a worm, freaked out and never came back again.
This was the first of many traumatic and scar-inducing gardening experiences, that I'm sure will result in years of therapy in the future. However, I am willing to attempt to overcome this previous experiences. I intend to grow a cactus.
Cactus's are great. They are simple, minimal care, prickly (as to prevent against unwanted younger siblings) and they use minimal amounts of soil and what soil they do use you can buy in a pretty, worm-free bag. It's a win win situation. Plus Cactus's are cool, Cactus's are fashionable, everyone wants a Cactus. Right?
See! I told you they were cute. So If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org you can get one of these awesome cactus's (cacti, cactusus?!?!) in a bucket, with lace on it ($35). Trust me they are way cool and awesome decorations for either your home or garden. If you're feeling particularly adventurous you can also get a Aztec Skull T-shirt ($20) or a Painted Tea Light Holder complete with twine (2 $15, 4 for $25). These are all awesome bargains and it would fantastic if you guys could shoot me an email and order something.
Lots of Love
