Used to have a very green thumb. With age and ailments my gardening pursuits have faded but I still love to grow some beautiful tomatoes and flowers.

I can cut and sprout about any plant. Gardening was a joy before accident 19 yrs ago.

I have always had success with plants and small trees. My main course of action is to leave them alone and let them grown with care but mostly on their own. my tangerine tree gave birth to 50 babies.

my only problem is plants get to beg and then I have to give them away. Otherwise, I grow plants that shouldn't be doing so well in my area. Main thing to remember is not to over water.

I kill everything. I'd love to have a garden but unfortunately I live in a townhouse where everything is done by landscapers.

Would like to but don’t. No inside plants. Outside plants are much easier. Have plenty of those.

My thumbs turn black every time I plant anything.

We like plants and do our best, but by no means are we master gardeners or landscapers.

Grew up on a farm. I definitely appreciate those with a green thumb but I'd rather be doing something else other than gardening, tending plants, etc.
