37 Products For People Who Definitely Don't Have a Green Thumb | 22 Words
Via Amazon

Killing plants is basically my hobby. If you ask me to housesit, your house will be fine — but your plants will be dead. If I put a potted basil plant out on my balcony it will die within days. Flowers wilt when I walk by. There's a chance I'm bringing the apocalypse, but I think I'm just really, really bad at gardening.

So when I say that I've tried a ton of these gardening products — and that they actually work — know that you're hearing it from someone who can't even keep a fake bouquet alive. And I know you think I'm probably exaggerating about how bad I am at gardening. For the record, I'm not. And if I'm being honest? It took me buying an AeroGarden to finally be able to grow plants from seed to flower. That thing literally did all the work for me, which might be cheating — but who cares? I've got fresh basil to cook with every night. And if you keep scrolling, you can, too!
