Growing Plants (An Attempt To)

Since I few months I’ve been wanting to grow flowers and herbs. I already bought several seeds to plant. But I never had the space or the things to plant them. Until last weekend. We bought a mini green house, ground/soil, garden gloves and some more seeds. I got started right away!

The Mini Green House

In the mini green house I planted basil, parsley, violets and peppermint. Just a few simple ones, who hopefully bloom soon! I have the little green house placed in the living room. It may be too cold outside — especially at night.


On our little balcony I did an attempt to plant dahlias and sweat peas. According to my mother dahlias are very hard to plant. So we’ll see! I had the dahlia bulbs stashed away in the bookcase for a few months. There was no mold on it, and one of them had even grown something green on in! So I’m pretty sure there will be hope for those dahlias. For the sweet peas? I don’t know. My mother planted them as well this month, and they are doing pretty good!


The only thing that might make it difficult for those plants are the kitties; Suki and Hiro. After months they finally stopped nibbling on our bonsai tree. I hope they won’t nibble on the flowers. Dahlias are one of my favourite flowers, so they better not touch it! We’ll see how it goes! They first have to start growing.

I also have some daisy, lupin and sunflower seeds to plant, but also more herb seeds and even for vegetables! Ah — if only I had a garden.
