Houseplant Help: Are your indoor plants feeling neglected? As the sun is getting stronger, houseplants are starting to wake up and grow again. Now is the perfect time to give them some fresh soil, a larger pot, some fertilizer, and a bit of tidying up. I’d be happy to help you with this ‘dirty’ job! I have years of experience with plants, indoors and out. No plant too small! I’m also available for pet sitting and housecleaning services until gardening season starts in early May.
