This year, with the “polar vortex” well underway for most states, it might seem like a flight of fancy to think of trying to garden when everything is freezing. If you are missing the outdoors and are longing to see some greenery, how about some indoor gardening to get your “nature” fix? Here are some ideas to get you started:
Why Not Wall-Mounted Planters?
One or more wall-mounted planters are a great way to add natural greenery, bring the eye to eye level or above, and add color and texture to your design. And there are so many wall-mounted planter designs and so many ways to work them into your home design! Place one wall-mounted planter on an accent wall near an entryway, place two on opposite walls to flank hallways, or cover a wall with multiple planters for a breathtaking display of greenery.
Try Your Hand at Terrariums
Along with wall-mounted planters, terrariums are a great way to add greenery indoors without sacrificing floor space. Hanging from the ceiling or placed on a tabletop or windowsill, our variety of terrariums are perfect for air plants, moss, and other low-maintenance plants. Simply spray them with a mister every once in a while to keep them hydrated.
The More You Grow—Seed Kits
Looking for a fun project for you, your kids, or the whole family? Grow mushrooms, flowering plants, strawberries, lettuce, and other live plants in the comfort (and warmth!) of your home with a seed kit. They come complete with everything you need, whether you’re a novice or expert gardener. A great way to grow an edible garden indoors, even on the kitchen counter or windowsill, you can have fresh herbs and other foodie treats at your fingertips!
Start a Windowsill Garden
Window boxes aren’t limited to the outdoors—there are just as many indoor uses for them, one of which is a windowsill garden! Grow herbs, ferns, succulents, flowering plants, and anything you like! We recommend growing hardier, cold-resistant plants, as they may still be somewhat affected by the cold coming from the windows. If it gets too cold on your windowsill, try placing your window box on your mantel, a bookshelf, a wall shelf, or on your table top for a gorgeous winter arrangement.
Plant a Work of Art
Create lush, living art with a living wall planter. Meant to be enjoyed both indoors and out, these living walls are perfect for shallow-rooted plants, as they come with a moss barrier that carries nutrients needed by plants, and absorbs water and light needed for healthy plant growth. Create your very own, one-of-a-kind plant art in endless designs and colors!
