Go ahead. But just to warn you, if you wake up in the middle of the night and hear the quiet screams of, "Feed us! Feed us!" you should know who it is.

You've gotten some great new plant ideas here--I think I'm going to use some too as my supply has dwindled over the years.

I agree with the others though--don't throw out your old ones! Maybe your local library or a nursing home would like them.

Mudbug, if you don't want to bother with finding people to give your plants to, just set them outside on your sidewalk and put a sign that says "free" on them.

Bananabrain, again, I tried to give you karma, but it said I had to spread the love around first. But, your quips always make my morning!

Thanks for all the suggestions, folks. The dead and dying plants will not go to waste - I have a little cemetery called a compost pile!

Time for a trip to the garden center soon.

Flattered. Glad to make your morning.
