I grow African violets and cacti.

i plant a few things in a garden, and i have a nice herb garden.

my mother is 90 and had a violet that was almost dead because she isnt able to tend it. i know nothing about violets, but i took it home and am trying to revive it. more sentimental than practical

any good resources you know of - id appreciate a link! or any tricks or hints. i cut it back to what was alive, and repotted. it is almost the right shade of green now! it was very pale almost dead looking.

They have african violet specialized feed. I think they like an acid soil with light waterings. Google it...my grandmother had one for a very long time. I think 20 years...but dont quote me on that. I know 15 for sure....

Keep the soil moist, but not wet, or they go yellow and rot, most general house plant foods are adequate in flower, go steady when they're not.

They are picky and easy to kill... my mom used to say they like to be watered from the bottom in a saucer.🤷‍♀️

Ducks loving there new area will make a small fruit n nut orchard in here as well Armonds are well suited for a small back yard grow nuts for proteins .
Yeah od, I think a lot of people overlook nuts or think they are too hard. Hope it goes well, you will be set for protein with all your nuts and eggs 💪.
I'm putting in a couple of macadamia trees next spring. Yes in Victoria, and no I'm not crazy. Two neighbours have them and they are happy and produce heavily. I think we are in a lucky spot for them - sandy soil, north facing slopes and very few frosts.
