Hi there! My name is Mara and I'm a plant enthusiast living in beautiful Stirling, Scotland. Having a garden for myself is my childhood dream, but unfortunately I still live in a flat... Nonetheless I've always had some plants in the house. I am originally from south Italy, where the weather is mild pretty much all year round except for hot summers...making indoor gardening very easy, basically water, repot and go, with occasional fertilizing...my plants have always been thriving with zero effort (also, having a sunny balcony helped a lot)! When I moved to Scotland I was enchanted by all the beautiful flowers and thriving gardens everywhere, but can't figure out how to keep my own plants alive! The flat where I live now has huge beautiful windows with large windowsills, perfect to decorate with plants. I have some in my lounge, it's very easy in the summer, but every winter all my plants die! Now, winter is coming again(pretty quickly I' say) and I don't want to say goodbye to my plants again! Some of them are cuttings I've gathered outside while hiking and I took so much effort to make them grow, I really want to help them survive the winter. Which is why I'm here! I am not experienced at all as a gardener, just know the basics, but I am determined to learn more this year and improve my gardening skills Thank you for taking the time to read all that!
