Interesting Garden Project Made Easy

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. - Zenserly/kulasa

     My green thumb has been put into a slumber for sometime. I remember when I used to ask the hubby to bring me home a new plant every weekend and the kids would be joking that all I ever say is "plants, plants, plants," oh I sure do miss those days when the internet has not taken up most of my time yet. Guilty here and promising to balance my online time and gardening time. I found the perfect inspiration to go planting again! The Gro Project is just the right thing to spice up my love for everything green and everything that blooms!

     Finally my head has a clear idea how to bring home fun garden projects what I love seeing most when travelling- blooms and wings around the house. The Ukelele garden inspiration I learned from viewing the facebook page of Miracle -Gro's The Gro Project, a growing movement of green thumbs is making me giddy with excitement thinking of setting up an akin project at home using our old worn out guitar to host some of the orchid plants a friend gifted me with a week ago. All I have to do is make a little twists of the instructions and materials as presented beautifully at The Gro Project of Miracle-Gro.

Moisture Control Potting Mix

     For the materials, I would make use of our old guitar and then Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix, an orchid, one of the crawling plants I bought, a drill and Miracle-Gro Shake 'n Feed Plant Food.
As illustrated at The Gro Project I will have to:
  • Drill- make holes in the bottom of the guitar for drainage, the songs the hubby sang to me using the old guitar then would come to life when the plants would be thriving inside the guitar's body!
  • Fill- pour potting mix into the opening
  • Plant- unwinding a few strings to make room
  • Nurture- let it sit outside and give it as much sun, water and Miracle-Gro Shake 'n Feed Plant Food as needed
  • Green Thumbs up- prop it up on our porch and feed the plants every three months to keep them looking fresh and the orchid flowers blooming! I am excited to see how the orchid and the vine will magically thrive together like me and the hubby together in our home :) I trust Miracle-Gro to do the trick and my love for gardening once again unearthed by The Gro Project adventure!

     I could just imagine the hubby's grin when he finds me not inside our room tapping on the computer but having my hands busy handling soil, petals and leaves and Miracle Gro. I could almost hear him saying, "look who's found her way back to gardening!"....and I would quip, "yeah, thank Miracle-Gro,"

     Happy Gardening and Saving Mother Earth in the process..and preserving The Joys of Simple Life....

  1. I have a black thumb. I do use Miracle Gro and it is probably the only reason things don't die the minute I look at them.
