Apart from Steff’s sparkly Christmas tree plant, we haven’t had any plant life in the house for ages. I decided that I would like – at the very least – to start growing spider plants again. I used to have a lot of them, because I found them fairly unkillable and they propagate by producing babies very easily. A few days ago I ordered one from Waitrose (I couldn’t find them in local shops) and it’s arrived. A magnificent specimen with lots of babies already, so we’ll soon have a few more.
