We are all in love with succulents, right? Since writing this post on repotting succulents last year mine have been growing along nicely but some started to look spindly in their pots. Time for a succulent makeover!
I brought all indoor plants out to the balcony for a good repotting and makeover. The smaller succulents would be sweet grouped together in a pot, so I put together little succulent scenes.
By the way, do you see the sad spider plant on the right in the photo above? My cats love to nibble at the ends…
All nice and new and ready to come back inside. I’ve heard it’s good for indoor succulents to spend some time outside in the summer but it’s not warm or dry enough yet and they’ve actually done very well being inside only in the last few years.
The balcony garden is doing pretty well too! The strawberries will be our first harvest. We’ve already had a taste of the tiny wild strawberries and the big ones are getting ready too.
The sugar snap peas have flowered and started to produce and the little apple tree seems all set to produce more than last year’s one apple.
Kale is my new favorite food to grow on a balcony, so easy and fast!
The only thing giving trouble is the salad. It’s growing extremely well but is having problems with thrips or whiteflies. Anyone have a non-toxic suggestion to get rid of these? I would be eternally grateful.
I caved and bought some flowers too. The ones I am growing from seed are taking their sweet time and I needed a bit of color to liven things up a bit.
Now all that remains is to wait for summer so the tomato and pepper plants will get a dose of warmth and sun and hit a growth spurt.
