Just because you don’t have a garden or outdoor area, doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy your own little garden! After all, plants not only looks great and add colour, they are also therapeutic!
Here are some great options to incorporate an indoor garden:
Kitchen garden pots
If you want something small, quick and convenient, kitchen garden pots kits are just the ticket. Perfect for windowsills, the kit generally comes equipped with soil mix pellets, seeds and a recyclable plastic pot the size of a large coffee cup. They can come in a variety of seedlings, including basil, parsley, tomato, chives, chilli, coriander and strawberry. And there’s nothing better than having herbs on hand for that last minute pasta or herb bread!
All-in-one kitchen herb planter
For those who don’t have time to pick out pots and herbs individually, these sweet, handy little kits come with three, hand-finished pots that include herb seeds such as parsley, sweet basil and chives. They look wonderful on the kitchen table (as long as it receives some light) or sitting on the windowsill.
Of course, you can’t go past a cute little succulent or a row or two of them on the windowsill or the kitchen table. Choose some pots in your favourite colour or mix and match for a striking effect. Even if you forget to give them water, they are very forgiving, as they have the ability to store water. This is an excellent option for those whose thumbs aren’t so green.
Mushroom growing kits
If your home doesn’t receive much light, then don’t despair! The humble mushroom is your friend. Not only do you get to grow them from scratch, you also have the added benefit of eating your crop once they have grown. Think mushroom soup, stir-fries, pasta and gravy! And the beauty of a mushroom kit is that they are idea for small spaces, plus they can be grown anywhere in the dark!
