Marche Atwater

atwater marche flower plant garden (14)I love getting the chance to visit Marche Atwater every spring and pick out new plants to add to my inside garden as well as view all the amazing flowers they have there. Our apartment doesn’t offer much space on our balcony or by the windows so I love being able to day dream and think about what I would plant if I had a whole yard and house to fill. I just wish I knew more of their names. If you know any botany 101 books that include photos and North American plant varieties let me know as I’d be interested to try and learn so when I post photos of them I can identify them too.  We ended up leaving with a bunch of new plants, including a few air plants, a variety of succulents and a licorice plant to name a few. I also bought a small bunch of flowers to test grow on the balcony as I am unsure if they will get enough light. It’s so nice to have a space filled with life, I love it so much. I should probably take a few photos my what my garden looks like now with the new additions – maybe later this summer have they’ve grown a bit.

A start to my Garden

plants

Me and Victor went to Atwater Marche to visit plant nurseries last week. We were looking to expand our inside garden which we’ve wanted for years but have been scared to do since I’m a plant killer. We had a few succulents and bamboo a few years ago that pretty much keeled over and dead as soon as the winter hit for no reason. I’ve been weary every since of the possibilty of growing indoor plants in Montreal but I’ve had a little vine plant for almost a year now that managed to make it through the winter and I’ve pretty happy to see it growing now that it’s spring.

plants So I decided Round II was in order, and we’ve been on the hunt since. We’ve already picked up a whole bunch of herbs for the kitchen and another vine plant from an outdoor market a few weeks ago.

plantsplantsI’ve been wanting to start a herb garden so I started that first and seeing how well the vines were doing I decided to try and find large plants for the house as well. The Atwater Marche has much large plants so we were excited to visit and I loved how amazing all the flowers and plants looked so I thought I’d share you photos from our trip there as well.

I also got some cat grass to discourage Butter from eating the other plants and the chives (as you can see in the picture above of her snacking on it). I’m growing the cat grass from seed and it’s already sprouting after a few days so I’m very excited to see how my little home garden turns out and maybe buy even more plants.
