The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Hello BIC friends and fellow gardeners! Whether you have a container on your balcony, some indoor plants, a whole garden, or even if you just happen to visit a botanical garden or see a lovely space or plant in your neighborhood you want to share, this is the place! Please share pics, tips, plans and tricks about all things gardening!  

 

For many years I had a container balcony garden with mostly flowers and herbs (when travel allowed), and I am now embarking on my first backyard landscaping and gardening journey. 

I am often taking inspiration from the natural world around me and have recently had some spring inspiration for the Makeup Challenge of the Week and have loved chatting about gardening in our other threads, so I thought a new thread would be nice. 

It’s always so interesting to me to see plants and gardens from different regions and countries, so I hope you’ll join the conversation!  

PS: if you create a makeup look based on some plant or garden inspiration, please feel free to post your look or flat-lay here, too! 


Here are a few pics of my spring bulbs to start and I’ll share more soon (kindly ignore the weeds)!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Samtian syngonium tri king, syngonium albo, aaaand philodendron white princesses. I believe they're more widely available now if you search online or at your local nursery! 😊

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

These have some beautiful leaves @jaaayp! Can’t believe they started off so tiny.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@JoSometimes yes.. during the pandemic plant madness it was impossible to get your hands on any of these without chopping off your hand in exchange.. im glad it's kinda dropping in prices now tho!! 🙌 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I know @jaaayp! One of my friends was in an exchange. I had nothing to offer except some strawberry runners. 😆

 

Even supplies were in short supply. I got an order pretty early on in the pandemic and was able to make a few raised planters. But the following year, I couldn’t get a hold of anything!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@JoSometimes the struggle!!! Yaaaa plant swaps are very common. I'm interested if you ever got something rare! 🙊

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I have one that miiight be interesting. Not sure what its name is though. It’s kind of viney and has green and purple leaves. I’ll take a proper picture once my phone’s camera is fixed. Not sure if I can even ship plants across the border. I know when it’s overseas, they’re very strict but I’ve never tried just Canada to the states. 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Your plants are definitely loving your care and they are thanking you by giving the best of them @jaaayp ! So beautiful! They are really unique and gorgeous! 💚💚💚💚💚

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Saradestin thank you 😊 I should be doing better as a plant mom and not a deadbeat dad like ive been doing 🤣

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Oh, they are so lovely! I’m Glad they are doing so well in your care! @jaaayp 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Titian06 thank you! 😊 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Today I am going to share the pride of my garden, my most loved corner (at least at this point, but it will be difficult to surpass this beauty)

I am talking about my caladium. I had them in pots in my apartment balcony and I planted the bulbs in a rush after buying the house and before the trip to Europe, too close to each other, because I didn’t have the time to dig more and clean the area. I will do it for next year. They don’t need to be taken out in winter, but I will do it just to re-plant them more separated so they can really shine! I have so many varieties! ❤️❤️❤️

I think this one is my favorite!

I have probably missed some. I still need to get a few that I have seen and I don’t have. 
In love!!!! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Saradestin Whoa those are cool looking!!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Aren’t they so pretty @Samtian ? There are so many different varieties and all so beautiful! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Saradestin Yes they are!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

These are so brightly coloured @Saradestin! I can see why they’re your pride and joy! They seem like they’re doing well even if they were planted in a rush. 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you so much @JoSometimes !! They make me happy every time I look at them, so beautiful!!

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Saradestin those are stunning!  I can't believe how large they are!  They must be happy 😊.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you so much @CookieGirl1 !! Some leaves are huge! And this is with a quite poor soil. Next year I need to work the area much better and prepare it nicely for the bulbs to grow bigger and happier! But that is the best spot for them: morning and late evening sun, and cool shade the rest of the day. Good dose of humidity, and nice temperatures day and night. What wouldn’t be happy in those conditions? 😁

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@Saradestin wow, I'd be amazed if they could actually get BIGGER.
