It's garden beginning time for many of us, especially in the South. How and what to plant was confusing for me. I was so much wanting a container garden on my patio. With just a walker I couldn't even go into the yard at all and my husband is a just let whatever grow grow until the neighbors complain. Then use the riding mower and weedwhacker. We have huge trees so limbs always need picking up but they love doing it at their young ages. But the 12 year-old has determined that it is WORK now. Due to climate change we cannot get anything to grow in the front yard except 3 huge trees over 30 years old. They shade the entire yard. Last summer the four grandkids did manage 9 Aloe Vista plants and I tried to repot my 2 indoor vines I'd had since Mother died in 1997.
One of my sitters did know about all that stuff and I have a bucket of daffodils now in my front yard. Not bad with all the cold, rainy spring we've had. However the money ran out to grow a patio garden but that's OK cause broken limbs (on me) stropped it.
But my puny indide one is growing great! I have a long but narrow bay window just where the dinnet sits so it gets sun all day. When it came time to bring the vines in my largest one--don't even know his origin--had to have a table all it's own and it is grown up past the curtains and started toward a bookshelf.I have put vases from previous generations around it. The morning light is great. This is the original plant. I won't bore you with my indoor garden anymore except to say I have a sweet potato vine also. I don't know their life span though.
I wish I was growing like my indoor plants---healthy for now
