All About African Violets – Episode 4.04 – It’s All About Grooming

Welcome to my Sunroom

Welcome to my Sunroom, you guys!!!  I’m going to quickly today because I have a lot to share with you!

Tips and Treasures

I’m trying an experiment this week. I filmed myself grooming my plants on the stand. Normally I would do this and film it for you looking down at the plant on a counter or table. I thought it might be more interesting to see me do this as I normally do it.

Please let me know if you like this or prefer to see these types of teaching videos in a more controlled environment. :-)

A Look at What’s On the Stands

The look is also quick this week because I know that grooming section was long!

Keep Moving Forward

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been thinking a lot about how best to move forward with the podcast.  I hope you enjoyed today’s “beginner basics” video! 

In my state – Illinois – we have a full-on mask mandate again. 

PLEASE – Get Vaccinated.  And keep practicing the 3 Ws:

  • Wear a mask
  • Wash your hands
  • Watch your distance

Thank you for joining me today – I hope your days are filled with all the things you love :-)
