Planning for Your Indoor Home Garden:

  • Choose a Location. Your indoor home garden will need to be in a room that has plenty of space and can take a little soiling.
  • Prepare the Area. Prepare the area for your indoor garden by removing clutter and clearing an appropriate space for the garden box.
  • Find a Light Source. You will need to install a skylight in this room of your home so your indoor garden can get the sunlight it needs.

The care for your indoor garden will be almost the same as for an outdoor garden, with a few minor exceptions. Following these guidelines will help your indoor home garden flourish throughout the year.

Indoor Home Garden Considerations:

  • What to Plant. It's best to stick to plants and flowers that normally do well indoors.
  • Watering and Feeding. Because the indoor environment is different than outdoors, you should feed and water your garden in accordance with the change.
  • Replenishing the Soil. Constantly monitor the soil of your home garden so that it has the nutrients your plants and flowers need to survive.

With just a little time and effort, you could be enjoying the benefits of a garden year round!
