As mentioned in a recent post houseplants are particularly important at this time of the year when it is too cold to work outside. Of course it takes more than a single houseplant to create an indoor garden, but some of the examples shown below are perhaps rather too much of a good thing. However this article by Vicky which I came across on the Top Dreamer website has some great ideas.
Plants bring color and life into the home and require little maintenance. For today, we have a few tips and tricks for indoor gardens.
If you want to learn how to select plants, pots and the best location for your home garden, then you are on the right destination.
Look for the best location for each plant, and don?t be afraid to try different spots until you find the best one.
Direct light means the plant needs six or more hours of bright sunshine a day.
Moderate light means the plant needs bright, direct sunshine about four hours a day.
Indirect light means the plant needs to be kept a few feet away form pounding sun at all times.
Low light means the plant needs no direct sunshine.
Eastern and western windows are sunny for part of the day, southern windows tend to be sunny for much of the day, while the north-facing windows don?t receive much light. Buildings, shrubs and trees can block light, so get to know your home to find the best location for your plant.
