Home Improvement | Green Fingers

Well, where to start.
I was given a plant of a random lady on campus in my first year of university - my gorgeous yet slightliy troublesome cat completely demolished this plant.
And this huge beanstalk look plant has now grown in its place.
I have no idea what is is, but I like it.
Some other random plants have grown in the same since.
Amazing what will grow in just a pot of soil....
But with cramped conditions I decided to replant all my lovely plants!

Plant seeds and compost both from Pound-land.

You can see my tree plant on the photo's! Its craaazy tall.
I also had a sweet violet in the pot, of which i've transferred into the cute little watering can pot from pound-land!!

My lovely little cactus was a Christmas present, 
The small white, red pot and purple pot given to me from a friend and look so cute!
The large white daisy post was thrifted for one whole squid!

I don't know much about gardening AT ALL.
All I know is:

1) Be GENTLE, with everything.

2) When you take the plant out, gently rub the outside of the plants roots to break them up a little.

3) When you place soil into the pot, use the back of your hand to keep compressing the soil down before planting.


Yup, thats it. Literally.

But It was a really fun thing to do and now my flat looks a lot more beautiful for doing such a simple little thing!

If you have any idea what my plant is LET ME KNOW!?
