Get an Instant Green Thumb


I love houseplants – they keep things bright , provide bursts of color and help keep things healthy inside those four walls we call home.  I do pretty well keeping houseplants alive, but could always use a tool that would help make things easier – both inside and outside.  I also am a big fan of summertime and planting new shrubs and flowers outside to enjoy all season long.  But it can be hard to turn a brown thumb into a green thumb without a lot of hard work.
