So, you’ve booked your two weeks off but how are you going to avoid a total plant massacre when you get home with your tan and your stick of rock? Here are G&T’s tips for necessarily abandoning your plant babies.
If you do have a friendly neighbour then either give them your spare key or lift up your plants for a holiday at their gaff. DO show them how to water, plant deaths are normally due to too much lovin’. DO bring them back a nice bottle of sangria to say thanks. Natch.
GIVE’EM A GOOD SOAK
Don’t trust the bloke downstairs with his watering can? Sit your plants in the sink or a tray of water and give them a good soak before you leave.
DON’T LET THEM DROWN
We’ve had NO rain but this is blighty - it will come back. Make sure all your pots have drainage holes and none are left sitting in deep trays before you leave.
Right, just time to pack your pants and passport!
