Thursday in the Garden



Remember THIS post showing our great, HEALTHY nip plant?



Look at it now.....sad.  Spindly stalks, dry leaves.  Mom just put it in the laundry room window where it will get more sun and she's going to trim it back.  We hope it helps.  


Any advice?  We sure hate to lose ANOTHER nip plant!

We'd cut it all the way back. There's plenty of nip there to keep you all happy for quite a while. Stop by today for Calista's Birthday. We gots lots of nip for efurrybuddy. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

If you cut it back, it will return. At least that has been my human's experience. Except that she can't seem to grow nip inside at all - but cutting the plant back outside seems to help it stay bushy.

Cutting the plant down is probably a good idea. We hop your nip plant can be saved!

Definitely cut it back...Think of all the lovely nip you'll have and the plant will be able to grow you more

To lose a nip plant is a tragedy!! ;)

Mum says prune it! Whatever that means? I thought prunes were skinny plums!!! Good luck!

Oh dear the nip plant is looking kind of sad - maybe a trim will perk it up.

More sun will definitely help your nip plant. It needs to be in a bigger pot as it is probably becoming root bound. If you don't want it to get too big. Prune it and the roots. Repot with fresh potting soil or just plant it outside :)

Mom has the best luck with plants that don't care if she neglects them. All our ideas have been made. Bigger pot, cut it back, and ,abbé check online to see if it needs to dry out before watering or stay moist all the time.

More sun and a bigger pot should save it.

Yer Nip plant survives INSIDE? We would eat it all up here. Ours only survive outside where they grow fast or inside protected in the plant-light shelfs.
