There is nothing I love more than a house full of plants, which makes it even more unfortunate that no matter how hard I try, I can’t keep a single one alive. My friends resorted to giving me a potted cactus… which somehow sadly deflated. I’ve been known to kill a plant from OVER watering it (who knew!?). I realised I’d hit rock bottom when I found myself proudly watering a very realistic looking FAKE fiddle leaf fig tree.

At some stage in 2016, I got really embarrassed by how many times I was visiting the nursery to replace the leafy friends that hadn’t made it. So, I started compiling a list of all the best places to pick up pots and plants around Adelaide.

I might be a plant murderer, but there’s always a silver lining — and in this case, it comes in the form of a list, to help my fellow anti-green thumbed friends.
