To create your garden in-house, there are a few things you will have to purchase. The first accessories you will need are pots and soil. Your indoor garden will need a different brand of soil than what you use outdoors. Potting soil is best because it doesn't pack down and it allows water to easily run through it. You can add a tiny bit of outside soil to add some trace nutrients. Potting soil makes it easy to tell if your plants are in need of water. By simply pushing your finger in the soil, you will know you need to water it.
Light is another vital issue. If you don't see the sun all winter, you will want to purchase some grow lights. For the best quality, you want LED grow lights. These fixtures are so efficient they don't waste energy or burn your plants. Of course, if you live in a place like California, you will usually still get sun every day. This means if you bring your garden indoors, all you need is an empty windowsill or some room in a nice, sunny area.
Next, you need to ponder how you will water your garden. Obviously, if you are potting just a few simple plants, watering them is totally basic. If you want to get more complex because you have a more sizeable garden, you can get a hydroponic system. This type of system will evenly move water to all of your flowers. You can water as little as you want. If you are buying a lighting fixture that gives off a lot of heat, you may have to water more often.
Don't let the season stop you from doing your favorite hobby. With the help of today's technology, you can have a stunning garden all indoors. You will be the envy of the neighborhood with your winter flowers and plants. Use your amazing garden to create beautiful holiday bouquets for your friends and family.
