Enjoy the idea of having a beautifully landscaped garden but don’t have the time or desire to perform the upkeep? Fear not, reluctant gardeners- you can achieve your goal of looking like Mr. and Ms. Greenthumbs without having to hardly lift a finger! Here’s your guide to plants and flowers that are almost ridiculously easy to keep alive.
