This is for all the new gardeners who want to sow different varieties of indoor plants, including edible and decorative ones. If you would like to know some simple, but practical home-grown wisdom regarding a garden that’s easy to maintain and gives you both body and soul nourishment, then read on.
Though some people seem to have all the luck, along with large spaces to maintain a kitchen garden, others, such as those who live in an apartment, have only small spaces. Still others have no a backyard, yet all can indulge in gardening as a hobby growing potted vegetables, herbs, floral plants and indoor greens.
A good choice for flowering plants that do well even when there’s limited areas for growth, such as planter boxes and pots that have been prepped with potting soil are nasturtiums of the compact kinds such as Whirlybird and Copper Sunset.
Marigolds, Iceland poppies plus smaller varieties of sunflowers are another option that will surly make your indoor garden area happy. These plants are short, easy to care for and not likely to take over your walls the way trailing plant varieties tend to!
If you’ve chosen herbs for your indoor garden, small tin-pot containers work well, as long as you make sure the needed sunlight (a minimum of 4 hours) and water nourishment is provided regularly. You can check your local nursery for prepared soil-mixes that will contain the right balance of grub for indoor garden glories.
Make sure you check for proper drainage (at the base) of your plant containers. Punch holes if these are missing, so that excess moisture escapes and your plants get the needed warmth as well.
If you’re planting herb seeds, try an old home gardener’s trick by pre-soaking them for a few hours before planting them in pots filled with potting soil. Next, cover the seeds with a quarter inch more of soil after you’ve randomly scattering them over the base soil and rosemary and thyme will surely see you through the season with a their wonderful aromas!
