Winter days are dragging on and many of us are ready to get our hands back in the dirt again. Instead of looking out of your window at your dull, winter landscape, try these ideas to bring some greenery inside.
Have you ever heard of a Mini Indoor Garden? Miniature floral worlds used to be popular in Victorian times and they are making a comeback in today’s trends. They are a great way to satisfy a green thumb appetite during the winter and they also are great for kids and apartment dwellers to enjoy. You can purchase an indoor garden kit that comes complete with everything you will need to create this self-contained biosphere. Expect to find a container, plants, soil, drainage material and garden elements in your kit and then let your imagination “go wild.” If you want to save some money, go out and buy your own mini indoor garden supplies and do-it-yourself. If you have a young daughter, she is sure to love taking care of her own fairy world. Mini indoor gardens can also teach your kids, on a very small scale, how to take care of plants.
Another way to survive the winter blues if you are a plant-lover is to start growing some bulb flowers inside. Forcing bulbs to flower insides does not require much skill. For the easiest solution, buy bulbs that are pre-chilled and ready to pot. Bulbs such as tulips, hyacinth, crocus and muscari are excellent options to add a little springtime to your wintertime. A landscaping professional can help you choose a bulb flower that works best in your home.
