Do you have a plant that DOESN’T bring you joy?

I do. There is one particular that has been bothering me for a while and I finally did something about it as I explain in the video below:

While there may be some sadness when removing a healthy plant, I confess that I didn’t feel that this time. The frustration that I feel each year with its under-performance in my garden that I was ready for it to go.

Here is the tiny orange tree that didn’t bring me joy.

Although it doesn’t show in this photo, there was a healthy root system on this tiny orange tree.

I sat and watched them plant my new tree. They did a great job!

I will keep you updated as to how it does. It will be hard to wait for two years for new fruit, but it will be worth it!

What plants do you have that no longer bring you joy?

    You didn’t account for why you didn’t like the tree. And, you planted another orange which further deepens the mystery. Finish the story so we can appreciate a forthcoming happy ending.

    Noelle,
    This was SO helpful! I want to plant a citrus at my new house, but I’m waiting for a planting plan. When is the rain coming? I see some of the comments were dated 2/22.
    Thanks again for the excellent video.
    S.
