3 Ways to Optimize Your Weekends with Indoor Gardening

Are you looking for a way to add some life and creativity to your weekends? Indoor gardening can not only provide you with a fun hobby but a way for you to detach from the hustle and bustle of life and just do something for yourself. In the winter, it’s hard for us gardeners to get outside and dig into a new project, but there are plenty of good reasons to stay indoors and get your gardening on. So, let's get started on creating a green oasis in the comfort of your own home.


  1. Green Thumb Therapy - 

Indoor gardening is a great way to relieve stress and bring a little bit of nature into your home. Instead of lounging on the couch all weekend, try setting aside some time to tend to your houseplants. You can prune, shape, repot, decorate, and add to your collection to create a jungle paradise to enjoy every time you open the door. Not only will you be getting some exercise as you water and prune, but you'll also be rewarded with the sight of a new leaf after all your hard work.


  1. DIY Decor - 

Instead of spending money on trinkets and tchotchkes, try creating your own projects that you can pair your plants with. You can repurpose old containers like jars and cans to create unique planters, or even create a vertical garden using a series of hanging pots. Not only will you be keeping a little more change in your pocket, but you'll also be creating a one-of-a-kind space that reflects your personal style.


  1. Edible Oasis - 

Indoor gardening doesn't have to be limited to just flowers and foliage. You can also grow your own herbs, and fruits, and even start sprouting veggies indoors. Try setting up a windowsill herb garden in a sunny spot, start a citrus collection to move outside when the weather starts warming up again, or create your own veggie garden early with a sprouting kit. The opportunities are endless as long as you have enough light. Our Green Team can help you even further with grow lights if you need more light indoors to keep your plants looking happy and healthy.


By incorporating indoor gardening into your weekend routine, you'll be able to relax, create, and nourish all at the same time. So, instead of letting the weekend pass you by, try getting your hands dirty and see what you can grow.
