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

@sister13  Love this! From now on I’m doing nothing for the pollinators!!! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Haha exactly - you’re welcome pollinators!! @ather 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 It’s funny because it’s true… 🫠

 

I’m not sure of our plans this year. I do want to do some carrots and spinach. They grow really easily. My coworker gave me a few of his pepper seeds last year. I need to remember where I put them though…

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I know, right?! There is nothing like fresh carrots!! @JoSometimes 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

That is hilarious @sister13 😂 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I thought so too!, @faeriegirl 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

This totally sounds like me @sister13 😂😂😂 omg! I've been so lazy with my plants since they've been pretty much dormant (sigh tropical plants) but spring is coming up and I'll be repotting a bunch of plants to share with the community! Thank you for the tag & the reminder of the thread! My app sucks and it doesn't show me different threads but basically the same ones over and over 🥲😭

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

I have not had his luck with the app in the past! All of my poor indoor plants need repotting so maybe this is the year I actually get to it! Can’t wait to see yours too! @jaaayp 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

The plants really should repot themselves.. theyre alive.. right LOL @sister13 😂😂😂

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

That's great!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 @sister13 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

🤣🤣🤣 @lmaster 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Dirty house? Same deal right @sister13 😂🤣 thx for the tags. PS yr before last my husband bought 2-3 tulip 🌷 packages on sale. He didn’t have time to put them in the ground and so he just sticked them in the pot. Last year we have couple bloom and somehow ithey got confused and come back in the middle of winter. 😂🤣 I take pictures if they actually make some bloom.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

That’s great! We had a late fall and I saw a few daffodils start to peek out, but I just put some more mulch out and told them to stay down a little longer, lol! @blackkitty2014 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

LOL - @sister13 ! 🤣  I have sink flies, so I either have to put the dirty dishes immediately in the dishwasher or the refrigerator. 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Haha! @Titian06 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

My cosmos were such a joy this summer until the early extreme cold zapped them! Also, the iceberg rose and morning glories were lovely! You can see out Dog Tuff grass plugs filled in pretty well.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

@sister13 You grew nasturtiums! They remind me of this vegetarian restaurant back home. There was this one pizza they had on the menu that was topped with nasturtium leaves and petals, which were also part of the decor on the patio. It was delicious and surprisingly filling.
