I'm a freelance writer just returned to Tassie from 8 years on the mainland. I've been writing honestly about personal experiences since school and now I'm sharing my experiences, opinions, passions and wicked sense of humour with the world.
Plant this one on your calendar
Did you know there are over 391,000 species of vascular plants? Like seriously that's a lot!
Perfect gift for someone? Love to be a green thumb? After something for your window sill? Need to brighten up a space? Take some plant life with you? Succulent or cacti?
I find it astounding the number of people who just love plants. My brother once told that he goes to bed thinking about them! Now that's a passionate plant person! I'll have to admit most of the plants I've owned have died but that means I've just worked out I need low maintenance plants. I just assumed all plants need sun and water but I've been told there's a bit more to it than that!
Just in time for Spring... It's back! After a successful first market in June, The Plant Market is back at West Village! This time you can expect more vendors than last time with handmade and locally grown products from the most passionate plant people! Browse through the selection of indoor and outdoor plants, flowers and herbs. There's also free face painting for kids, kid's craft and to top it off live music as well. Some of the stalls you can expect to find:
