As with our outdoor gardens, many things can go wrong when you grow plants indoors. Learn the factors that make for happy houseplants, including light, water, and temperature, and how to provide them. Common houseplant pests and diseases are also on the agenda, as well as how to treat them.
Bonnie Power has been a Massachusetts Master Gardener and member of the MMGA Speakers Bureau since 2016, and a serious outdoor/indoor gardener most of her life. Curious and research-oriented by nature, she has many horticultural interests and areas of expertise. Bonnie holds both a bachelorâ€™s and a masterâ€™s degree in Zoology, which informs her perspective on the management of garden insects; she is also an administrator for a â€œsick houseplantâ€ group on Facebook. A lifelong passion for organic gardening and soil health recently led Bonnie to take on a new role as manager of the MMGA Soil pH Testing team. She also volunteers at Garden in the Woods, a Native Plant Trust botanical garden in Framingham, where she is a guide. At home in Marlborough, Bonnie grows a variety of vegetables and ornamentals (with a bias for natives), organically, of course.
