Planting English Ivy

Planting English Ivy

Alright, so last weekend was a holiday weekend, I finally had all the materials for the mason jars, I just needed to plant something in them. A few weeks ago, when I was still dreaming of all-inclusive tower kits, I bought a bunch of seeds for herbs and peppers and greens. Unfortunately, most of those require full sun to grow really well (or the grow light in the tower kit of course), and I don’t really get any full sun in my Pacific northwest abode. So, it was time to find some alternatives for my jars. I embarked on a journey to find seeds for house plants… only, that’s not actually a really common thing. Turns out house plants are easier to grow from cuttings than from seeds. Or nursery containers. With soil. Also, apparently very few places have seeds in the dead of winter. Who knew.
