It’s no surprise that gardening is becoming increasingly popular, with some even considering it a kind of therapy. It relieves stress better than other leisure activities and allows us to grow nutritious food, connect with nature, and build our own relaxing and enjoyable spaces.
A garden filled with life and abundance may seem like a distant dream if you live in an apartment with no outdoor space. But that is not the case! With these simple indoor garden ideas and tips, you can turn even the tiniest rooms into a slice of paradise.
1. Germinate Seeds
When it comes to germinating seeds, the paper towel approach works well. First, wrap a few seeds in a damp paper towel and store them in a sealed plastic baggie. Then, place the bag somewhere dark and warm, and check on it every few days, soaking the paper towel as needed.
You can also use eggshells as seed starters. Eggshells are mostly made of calcium carbonate, one of the essential minerals for healthy plants. The eggshells nourish the soil with calcium and nitrogen as they decompose, which the plant’s roots will absorb and utilize as it grows.
2. Pot Some Plants!
You can grow fresh vegetables, herbs, and many other plants even if you don’t have an outdoor space to cultivate a garden. Container gardening is a great way to grow various plants indoors, and all you need are a few pots, soil, and fertilizer. To get a head start, replant some seedlings from your local nursery, or you can use seeds if you’re not in a rush.
