At Leck’s Greenhouses, we’re renowned in the region for being one of the top flower nurseries in Bucks County. Because of that, we understand that you’re probably getting “cabin fever” from not being able to tend to your outdoor garden. Well, what if we told you that you could bring the gardening inside your house this season?
With a little creativity and ingenuity, you bring the garden indoors. This can add some color and texture around your home, creating vibrancy and brightening any room, area, or window. Let’s take a look at some of the easiest ways to scratch your gardening itch:
Fun With Foliage
Consider adding some foliage to brighten up your indoor areas. Foliage houseplants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and even rooms. Be sure to find something that sparks your interest. A few excellent choices are:
With their exotic appearance and feather-like frond, ferns can be the perfect addition to any room. The humidity and moisture from your shower make them a perfect candidate for the bathroom window.
The plants in this genus as also know as spiderworts, and have hardy characteristics that make them ideal for an indoor vining plant. They feature stripes of white, green, silver, and even purple in their foliage and can add beauty to a living room or sunroom.
Featuring long, arched foliage that’s either solid green or accented with white, spider plants are easy to grow and look particularly great in a hanging basket.
Incorporating a small succulent garden can be another inventive way to bring the gardening indoors this winter. These plants are quite easy to grow, and can survive indoor conditions thanks to their fleshy leaves, thick stems, or enlarged roots that allow them to retain moisture. Not only that, but their distinct leaf shapes can give succulents a beautiful and alluring appearance, turning them into living sculptures for your windowsill.
And while most people are familiar with cacti, there are plenty of other colorful succulents available, like:
- Echeveria subrigida
- Crassula capitella thyrsiflora
- Euphorbia tirucallii
- Haworthia attenuata
- Kalanchoe luciae
Adding indoor plants to your living space can create an abundance of color and texture for your home. Don’t be afraid to experiment and see what works best for your interior and layout!
