Buying Plants as Gifts

Plants are the gift that continues to give long after the special occasion has passed. When buying a plant for someone, look for compact plants with lots of foliage. You shouldn't see roots coming out of the pot. And if it's a flowering plant, try to find one that hasn't yet fully bloomed. Be sure to include care instructions with the plant.
