Gardening is a hobby that many people love, but not everyone has the space or time to care for a large outdoor garden. With so many people being indoors all day in recent times, having a miniature garden inside your home is the solution to have the best of both worlds. To start an indoor garden, you need some plants that can grow inside!
This root vegetable thrives in dim lighting and is relatively easy to care for. The only thing to keep in mind is they require a deep container to account for their large roots. If you’re looking for a crunchy addition to any salad or dish, radishes are the one for your limited indoor space – just make sure they have room to grow!
Microgreens are the tiny sprigs that can be found atop salads and other dishes in many restaurants. When growing your own, all they require is a small square of space on your windowsill that has access to light. Within two weeks, you’ll be able to cut them from their planters and top them on your own homemade salads and sandwiches.
A fool-proof plant to have inside is one of the many varieties of herbs. They require very little sunlight, even less during the winter months, and can be put in a variety of spaces within your home – as long as they have a little bit of light. Herbs like basil, parsley, cilantro and oregano can be grown and added to any dish you create in your kitchen for an added boost of flavor.
Scallions are from the onion family but are sweeter than the normal yellow or red onion. If you’re brand new to gardening and looking for a plant to begin with, scallions are the vegetable for you. They only require an occasional watering and access to minimal sunlight. They are the perfect gateway plant to put in a garden window.
Start Your Garden with a Garden Window
To begin your indoor garden, you need a space to put your new vegetables! If your home doesn’t have many windows or areas of light, attaching a small garden box or planter to your window is an easy way to give the plants access to sunshine and not be on the floor taking up space.
Garden windows bring light into your home and allows your home to be more energy efficient in the warmer and sunnier months. Window World offers a variety of garden windows that vary depending on your home’s needs and price range. This kind of window offers a solution that gives you the best of both worlds: the ability to have a garden and extra light into your home without having a lot of space for a garden.
