D and I took a short trip to Home Depot to pick up a couple things today, and looking through the garden center I got inspired. We have some different spaces in our front yard and enclosed patio that could use some cute plants, but I so do not have a green thumb and so am not sure how to begin. I want to get plants that are not toxic for pets or kids, obviously, but also are hopefully somewhat hearty since I'm not the best at keeping up with plant upkeep. Oh, and should be able to take a good bit of direct sun. And is it ok to transfer a plant to the ground now, as we approach winter? I know it's California so it'll be mild... It would be nice to have something in the ground by our housewarming party next month.
So, anyone have any advice?
