African Violet

My wife grows these on the kitchen windowsill.

    Beautiful! What's the secret to getting them to bloom? Mine usually have plenty of leaves, but no flowers.

    Mela says that yours are most probably in the wrong place. They like a warm, airy spot, out of direct sunlight. She suggests that you look for special african violet plant food and says you must only ever water them from the base tray as getting water directly on the leaves or stems can make them rot.

    Ah, good advice. Thanks! :-)
