Spring is right around the corner, which means traveling is on everyone’s mind, making this a great time to talk about indoor gardening. You may be wondering what traveling and indoor gardening have in common; not only is indoor gardening a great way to grow your own produce, but it also allows you to enjoy fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers anywhere, at any time. Whether you’re in a dorm room or taking a trip for spring break, you can enjoy your own personal indoor garden. No matter where you go, what you choose to grow, or who you’re with, your travels will always include amazing plants to enjoy year round from your indoor garden. Here are some tips on how you too can make your own unique indoor garden.
Decide on a style of garden
There are two general styles of indoor gardening: container (the typical soil in a bucket) or hydroponic (the use of water instead of soil). They are both great options for indoor gardening, and both allow you to grow fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers.
Choose the right space
It’s important to pick the best spot indoors in order to have a successful garden. Select an area that has a lot of windows and sunlight.
Control the environment
This step greatly increases the success of your garden. Take the time to control air temperature, water frequency and soil condition.
Decide on your plants
Some popular fruits and vegetables to grow indoors include tomatoes, peppers, strawberries and grapes. If you want to grow herbs or flowers, you can choose from basil, chives, marigolds or peace lily.
Enjoy your indoor garden
Now that you’ve created the perfect garden fit for you, don’t forget to have fun and love what you’ve designed wherever you are!
