More Plant Necromancy

Its been about two months since I came back to a dead looking avocado tree whose leaves had all dried up and fallen off. Because the stem was still green I didn’t get rid of it, continuing to water it and hope. Today its put out little buds.20161015_145959

Apologies for the blurry photograph, I’ve drunk slightly too much coffee today so there was some camera shake involved.

Moral of the story, if its still green there’s hope.


Spring Onions


I’m quite proud of these. At some point I decided to try regrowing vegetables from scrap ends and this is one of the results. If you want to try this for yourself all you need to do is put the cut ends in water for a few days until they sprout new green shoots and then transfer them to a pot. You can actually see how some of the ones in the image are splitting into two plants!
