I decided that I just need to have a little Spring NOW. I have this large copper container that my mom gave me. I just bought 3 potted lavender plants and filled the bottom of the container with small rocks (so water doesn't accumulate around the plants roots), then I filled it with potting soil around the loosened root ball. I put them in a sunny window for part of the day and, so far, they are doing great.
This reminds me of a post I did on the color lavender which you can see here.
I am just in a lavender mood these days!
You should give this a try. It costs the same as one bunch of cut flowers and lasts much longer:)
