Tuesday's Tip-off: The best way to spruce up your room

Purchase a succulent or cactus. Not only are they fool-proof for any aged gardener (okay, apart from the spikes) but they look so pretty, brightening up a dull window sill, and they bring a bit of the outdoors in. I've had my cacti for a couple of months now and I'm so fond of them, I've given them names, Yoda and Jar Jar. Both of them have flowered so I must be doing something right.
