I hate cruelty to plants. I dislike it when plants are not shown respect. I frown when I see dyed heathers. I want to talk very severely to the plant buyer when I see dyed moth orchids with their insanely, inky blooms.
So you can guess how I felt when I saw these little beauties being offered by a nursery in the Netherlands. *
I was going to save this for Paddy’s day but I can’t contain my disgust any longer! You can have an echeveria to suit your nationality. How cool is that? Not very cool at all actually. It is horrible. And imagine how awful they will look when they start to grow if they don’t die with the indignity of it all.
* Photos are from Amigo Plant nurseries who are, perhaps, better known for ‘glow-in-the-dark’ echeverias. I hate to think what they are working on next!
Actually I know. They have just exhibited it at a horticultural show in the Netherlands. It is ‘Paint your plant’ – ‘With this concept children can colour the leaves of the plant. Fun for a party.’
no, No, NOOOOO
I am just glad I only had pass-the-parcel and jelly when I was a child or I might have ended up spraying graffiti on cabbages.
What do you think?
at least the frost will kill them!
