But then I realized that if you live in a city like I do, there are very limited options for live plants other than those half dead, highly toxic things they sell at Home Depot.
I’ve been obsessing over Annie’s, a California based nursery that specializes in Rare, unusual annuals & perennial plants, including cottage garden heirlooms & hard to find California native wildflowers. Genius! Plants are lovingly cultivated, come with snappy descriptions and care instructions and are generally tres affordable (most plants are between $4.95-$8.95 a piece).
And fear not, there are lots of great apartment dweller options. My personal favorites:
How about great basil for the kitchen windowsill?
Or amazing succulents for that terrarium you’ve been thinking about?
