Indoor Garden

During long winter months when the ground is frozen solid and the pleasure of gardening is either a distant memory or a future waiting to unfold, indoor garden can fulfill the urge to the green. Indoor gardening had its first heyday during Victorian times. Not only do plants cleanse your household air and improve the aesthetics of any indoor space, orchard plants can provide you with fresh, organic foods. It’s possible to produce large quantities of fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, succulents and all kinds of beautiful flowers in your own home all year round!

The more you know about your indoor plants and where they come from, the easier it will be to keep them healthy. Understanding a plant's native habitat can help you decide which potting soil to use, how often to water, what window the plant should be in, and whether or not it needs extra humidity. But even if you don't have specific cultural information about each and every one of your houseplants, our experts will help you create a beautiful and 100% functional indoor garden.

Here are some tips on caring for indoor gardens:

Let there be light!
Light needs depend on the type of plant, but most plants do need bright light and during winter months a few hours of direct sun. Rotate your plants every few days so all sides of the plant receive equal amounts of light. If they are displayed in a location with low light, leave them there only for a couple of days and then return to a sunny window.

Get it sharp
Pruning requires a sharp knife or scissors. A blunt cutter can do harm to the branches and hurt your plant, which can be crucial in winter time, when plants regenerate slowly.

Water wisely
Winter watering is tricky. Since most plants get into hybernation during winter months, you don't want to water them as often as in the summer time. Nevertheless it's best to keep the soil evenly moist. Be sure each pot has a proper draining bottom layer for better water utilization. Don't let your plants stay in a saucer of water, and never let them dry out completely.

Don't let them starve
Fertilize once a month (except during winter), with a well-balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Please mind, that each plant may need its special type of ferilizer, though there are multi-purpose formulas that may fit them all.
