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

That colour is so vivid and bright @Saradestin! It clearly loves the spot you planted it in.

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you so much @JoSometimes !! This soil is very poor so I have to create a rich and acidic one for them to be happy. And I think they are 💙💜🩷

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Beautiful, @Saradestin ! 💜💜💜

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

Thank you so much @Titian06 ! 🤗 This year is not as beautiful as last one, but I haven’t been able to care for it as it deserves. I am surprised it still shows up every year giving me these beautiful flowers! 

Re: The BIC Plant and Gardening Thread

One of the nurseries has a stunning bulb displays! Their sign says (basically) “if you like this, come back in the fall to buy bulbs!”
