Plant Food for Thought

Is your loved one someone who used to, or still does, enjoy gardening? They may not be able to get out and dig in the garden anymore but having a plant inside to care for may being some of the same wonderful benefits. 

Not only are plants aesthetically pleasing and it is said they can purify the air in our homes; they can also bring a sense of responsibility, independence and control to an elder who lives alone or is in need of a companion that doesn’t take much effort to care for. 

So for these benefits and more perhaps your loved one will get great satisfaction in the addition of a new house plant!
