Don’t worry about small space even if you want an indoor garden. Invest wisely in miniature varieties of plants and shrubs that do not grow too tall and make use of teacups and tins, suggest experts.
Experts at SaleBhai (online destination to discover original and unique specialities from different regions of India) and Sunil Gupta, Founder at Exporters India (a marketplace for manufacturers, exporters, suppliers and importers), have shared a few inputs:
* You need not necessarily own a balcony to grow plants. A window ledge or your staircase is more than enough to do some gardening, but with the right containers and plants. Choose from hanging plants that look attractive and freshen up the limited space, or choose a window box that perfectly fits on or below the sill of a window of your building or house.
* A mini open-air tabletop garden like a terrarium would be the best way to add that tinge of greenery to an indoor space. Look for glass tumblers, bowls and jars of various shapes and sizes.
* Instead of plastic or clay pots, create a tiny, container garden in any place you can spare. Make use of teacups, teapots, thimbles, vintage sap buckets or tins, and willow baskets that look attractive and fit in any part of your home.
* Opt for vertical gardening which can be a great space-saving trick. Vertical gardens can create a statement if the right hanging baskets, wine bottles or containers are used.
* Not all the plants love the light. You can choose from plants that thrive in low-light conditions like ferns or snake plants. This is especially important if you’re trying to grow plants in a limited space.
Choose plants with upright instead of horizontal growth, which are ideal for limited space homes. Go for perennial plants that last for at least two years or more to save effort and money.
