Believe it or not, gardens don’t always have to be an outdoor thing – lots of people keep gardens in their own home. An indoor garden can really liven up the home, but there are a couple of things to be aware of should you decide to start your own indoor botanical garden.
1.) Make sure your indoor garden is stocked with plants that can grow well indoors. Most plants can make that transition as long as they are in a location with plenty of access to the sun and there is a decent enough temperature.
2.) Be wary of critters. Bringing a garden into the home can sometimes bring some nasty stowaways. Proper insect countermeasures would be prudent to have near the indoor garden and throughout the home.
3.) Be wary of climbers. Climbing plants do one thing and one thing well and if you aren’t careful, they could take over the room. If you have a climber, give it something to climb like a small stick or a miniature wooden grid.
And, while this goes without saying, make sure whatever room you put this garden in can handle it. Sunrooms are usually ideal, but if you need help remodeling or reconstructing an area to handle the garden, you should consult the pros.
