GARDENING - Jjimmy Rockett from Bug Juice Gardens showed us bright color for the indoors. Jimmy says the holidays are coming up and friends and family will be over to gather. So how about decorating with live colorful plants? Cyclamen is a favorite for the bright color of reds, pinks and white. It is easy to care for and is gives any space a bang! Jimmy says you can even use them in conjunction with other plants as a center piece. Treat them as any house plant while checking the soil as to not to over water. Forced hydrangeas are also a big hit due to their big color as well. We all know of poinsettias so having some of these hydrangeas splattered thru out really adds a touch of dIfferent color and conversation. Topiary ivy also can add cool shapes and color by adding ribbon and colorful balls to change up the old standard of decorating a christmas tree. Jimmy says you could even add lights to the some of the taller ivy topiary. As always with house plants, never let the plant sit in water more than an hour after you water them, this could cause rot and that is not good. Jimmy also warns not to place plants near heat registers as this will dry them out faster. For more information, call Jimmy at (205) 981-1151, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.rockettsbugjuicegardens.com.
