More than likely you know someone who has said they have a black thumb and they can't grow anything. Maybe that's you. The good news is there is no such thing, however people can have a real fear of being responsible for another living thing, such as a plant. Along with the anxiety that it could possibly die or it's too much of a commitment.

Regardless of what triggers the plant fear factor, expert horticulturist and marketing manager, Stacey Hirvela with Proven Winners, joins us on this episode to dispel these fears and offer so excellent solutions to overcome them. Included, the mind set that it's less about the plant and more about learning experiences, what to do with that plant you received as a gift that isn't really your taste and what to do with that plant that you've just grown tired of.

Once you get past the plant fear factor, you'll begin to appreciate all that the experience provides such as reducing your stress level, adding a focal point in your garden or landscape, to the confidence boost when your plant begins to flourish.
