If you love to garden outdoors and love being surrounded by nature, you need to try some indoor gardening. You don’t have to have a green thumb to grow indoor plants and there many different low maintenance ways to bring the outdoors in.

First let’s get started with the benefits of indoor gardening:

  • They improve our air quality by filtering toxins that get trapped indoors.
  • They are usually less maintenance and plants are relatively safe from pests and disease.
  • They add a splash of nature to any environment, which is refreshing and soothing.
  • They can make any room look brighter and more attractive, which in turn lifts the spirit of the room, making people feel welcome.
  • They are versatile, can be moved easily and usually require little space

With the help of Home Life, we have put together a list of great indoor gardening ideas:

Terrariums
Create mini-garden worlds filled with your favourite small plants in hanging glass spheres.

Stack ’em up
Choose the right product to suit your needs and space. Stacking wall planters can be built up to your preferred height and create visual interest in any home.

Add colour
Brighten up a small space in an instant with a splash of colour. Macrame planters are hand knotted and come in a selection of brilliant colours.

Turn things upside-down
Hanging pots are the ultimate space saver and can feature internal irrigation systems and locking discs to secure the plant and soil so there’s no mess.

Edible gardens
Growing herbs such as parsley, rosemary, mint and coriander is a fabulous idea for every cook’s kitchen. What could be more satisfying than reaching over and picking some fresh, organic ingredients to add to your recipe?

Spring bulbs
Spring bulbs are not strictly for spring! Watching a plant blossom is a wonderful way to bring life to your space and fill the room with a glorious fragrance.
