Everyone wants to have a garden with good and healthy plants.
Before purchasing a new plant, you would like to know if the plant is healthy or not. The best way to do so is by taking a good look at it.
If you see that the plant you want to purchase has something abnormal near the roots or if its leaves are worn out, it is a sign that the plant may not be healthy. In such a case, you may want to consult the gardener or the shopkeeper.
Also, if you can choose from a plant with blooming flowers and a plant with little buds, it would be advisable to go for the one with little buds instead of blooms because plants develop their roots better. If they develop their roots, they have less of blooms than buds.
However, if you do not have too many options, then you may consider the ones with flowers and cut them off once planted, and they would develop their roots in a couple of weeks. Apart from the flowers, you can also choose healthy plants by looking at their roots. The roots that hold the soil together should be white in color instead of brown or soft. White Roots are the ones that are healthier than others.
Once you are sure about the roots, you would like to see if the branches are strong with thick and rich leaves, which is a sure sign of a healthy plant. Please do not go for plants with torn leaves or flat and withered leaves because they will die fast or catch diseases as they are not healthy enough. So, next time you plan on buying some new plants, consider all these factors to choose a healthy plant that would sustain and thrive well.
