On our social media channels we asked for pictures of "#stayathomeplants". Thanks a lot for your feedback and the great pictures! 


In Pankow-Berlin #wirbleibenzusammen, #wirbleibenzuhause. Am Ostersonntag wird gegrillt auf dem Balkon.


1. Aloe vera ( to make a face mask out of its gel) 2. basil, parsley, coriander, cress ( for cooking and making salad) 


Planted this cutie last autumn in the garden by my old home and totally forgot about it over the winter. Now finally rescued her a couple days ago and brought her to my new home. Looks like she enjoys it! Can't wait to make my first homemade mangold-meal!


@Greetings from the North America home office of @UniCologne. We’ve *bean* growing!


Had to start over again with my balcony last fall due to months of construction. Unexpected dwellers welcome (I'm talking about you Geranium robertianum!). Birds and insects like it.


Two weeks ago I sowed sugar peas


My jade plant doesn't seem to be doing so bad. Can't wait to see it grow even more



Vor ein paar Jahren habe ich eine Zitronenmelisse im Schrebergarten gepflanzt. Mittlerweile ist meine Lieblingspflanze überall im Garten - und auch zuhause :-)


Two years ago I accidentally broke a leaf off my jade plant. Plugged it into a bit of soil and now this little fellow grows happily and brightens each day of lockdown.


Raddish, one week after sowing.

And sweet woodruff, waiting for May.


Dies sind Tulpen, die ich mir vor zwei Jahren aus Amsterdam mitgebracht und in unser Beet gesetzt habe. Seitdem kommen sie jeden Frühling und blühen sehr schön.
