Not everyone is born wearing garden gloves. Sometimes, gardening is a learned skill, not one that comes naturally or for which you immediately have passion. If you believe there’s a fair chance that you’ll forget about your garden pots full of plants, then you’ll need to choose pot plants that will handle neglect. Here are a few such options below.
If you’re quite forgetful when it comes to plants, then perennials may be an excellent option for you. Once you plant them, you can almost leave them to their own devices to flourish and thrive. Perennials such as garvinea, gerbera, and jade will also look stunning as they bloom, even if it’s not your effort that got them to that point.
Perennials will also live for around three to five years but will spend a lot of this time in and out of growth. If you don’t require the prettiest plants in your garden pots year-round, add these to your shopping list.
Australian weather conditions can be quite harsh, with intense heat seeing only the most robust plants survive. Succulents will be one of them. These robust and beautiful little plants will look striking in your garden pots, but will also thrive on neglect. Ignore them, treat them poorly, and they will repay you by looking vibrant and colourful.
