Florets - Floral Quote - # 158 - by Igor Josifovic and Judith De Graaff

'Florets - Floral Quote' is a series of blog posts where I feature quotes by authors - mostly well known - but you will also find some obscure ones.

All of them have written one or several books about flowers, green plants, gardening, interior styling or interior design. Many are experts in their field but what is the most important is that they are all passionate about flowers and plants.

I love books and in my ever growing library I look for quotes that I hope will be both inspiring and be useful while arranging flowers or green plants in your home.

"It's very understandable: when we buy a new plant we're excited and want to take good care of our new plant friend. We lavish it with care and attention, and give it a drink of water every day. But most plants only need to be watered once or twice a week - and some much less often. Our overeagerness turns out to be a fatal mistake, and the new plant bites the dust. As a side note, a tip: the finger test is always good. If the upper layer of soil is dry, you can water the plant again."
