Years ago my thoughtful husband gave me a beautiful hanger for Mother's Day... it wasn't from Country Garden, but it was sweet, and I didn't need to say anything about where he bought it. Using diplomacy is a skill I have acquired as I
. I highly recommend it.
It was a pretty plant hanger, but boy, it was crowded, root bound and by mid June it was done.
I decided to tear into it, to the shock of my beloved. I separated the plants, put them into individual pots to give the roots some room to grow, then very slowly they bounced back. I wish I had known, back then, all the tips C.L. is giving us this week in her Blog Post, to help prevent this scene from happening.
My husband now no longer buys potted flowers for me, for fear I will tear into it as if I'm tearing into his heart. I really don't blame him, the poor guy.
I told him to leave the flowers to me. So far this has worked and there has been peace throughout the kingdom.
You too can learn what to do to keep your hangers from looking like something the cat slept in.
In her post below, C.L. gives us simple tips to keep hangers looking fresh and revived though the season. Hopefully this should help to keep the peace in your kingdom too.
Be well -♥
