After a couple of months this Hydrangea is doing quite well. By the spring it should be blooming. Updated 1/19/09.

The heat really got to this Hydrangea. The brown leaves were cut back to foster new growth. Plenty of water and shade will help the hydrangea form new buds.

The attached picture is of a rescued plant that Kristin and her boyfriend Dan and have named Indiana. A few years ago Dan helped a coworker move out of his apartment on Indiana Street in Potrero Hill. The coworker was going to abandon his dying plant that was living in a cracked pot with shards in its soil. Dan decided to bring Indiana home and after 3 years and lots of love he is finally thriving.

Plant Rescue Launches online!

Plant rescue is ready to receive your plants that are in desperate need of revitalization. If you live in the Bay Area and have considered putting your plant in the compost bin, or for heavens sake the garbage can, think twice and email plant rescue.

We will arrange a pick up or drop off location where you can bring your plant(s) to give them a second chance. Your plant will be documented on the plant rescue blog. Once your plant is showing progress you will be asked whether or not you would like to take your plant home with proper care instructions or to receive a photograph to place where your plant once lived.

You will also be encouraged to leave your plant comments to promote healthy growth and a sense of well-being.

Plant rescue strives to foster a community of plant appreciation and cultivation to promote healthy plant practices and care. In the future, plant rescue will place rescued plants up for adoption. Stay tuned...

Plant Rescue begins

This spider plant was the inspiration for plant rescue. It was found on the corner of 20th and Bryant Streets in San Francisco. It was abandoned curbside along with an easter cactus in 2005. Since coming into the care of plant rescue, the spider plant has propagated a sister plant and enjoys the company of other rescued plants.
