Let’s See If a Ligustrum Japonicum Can Survive the Potter With No Luck
There’s this one potter, set against the house, where very little if any direct sunlight reaches. The last plant there, the Persian Lilac, started out well but started to die the slow death. So, I went to Old City Farm and Guild instead of the department store nurseries this time, in hopes of getting some guidance of what I could plant that would survive.
They suggested a Ligustrum Japonicum.
One of the differences this time when planting a plant is using compost. I’ve been buying garden soil, usually whatever was on sale, some mulch, and maybe, just maybe, some sort of fertilizer or something advertised as helpful in the growth of plants. But the guy at Old City Farm and Guild highly recommended using compost, so let’s see what if it makes a difference.
