When you decide to incorporate some houseplants, you should add them at the beginning of the month or the New Year. This time signifies a new start for your family and your house. The most important factor in selecting indoor plants is their overall health. If you have a brown thumb, you want to pick easy to care for plants. A plant that is struggling to survive will put out bad Feng Shui.

My passion is gardening. Along with my husband and children, each year we grow a garden large enough to provide our family of five with over half of our needed produce. Besides vegetables and a small berry patch, I also focus my attention on beautifying our home with strategically placed flowers, herbs, and flowering plants. Gardening is more than just a hobby; it is a way of life.
