The Brown Thumb Chronicles: I Kill Plants (…often)

May 21, 2010

Its mildly embarrassing to be a brown thumb when you work at Woolly Pocket.

Its with great regret I tell you that just last month a tender succulent died while in my very own care. It took me awhile to come out. It just sort of happened at a staff meeting – I blurted it out while Jeff looked on in horror.  Everyone sympathized. Sara even related to my plight! It was then that I realized I was not alone & instead of crying about it I wanted to figure out what I was doing wrong so I too could have family of healthy happy plants in my house!

Every week I am going to be documenting my struggles with plants & attempts to have a little bit of Stephanie’s green thumb rub off on my own brown ones.

I know I’m not alone. I know you’ve killed plants before too. Or, maybe you’re too afraid you’ll kill one to even try! So, I think we should do this together. Tell me your plant gripes, suggestions, most feared species, whatever – I’ll tackle them! Let’s do it together!!
