Late Winter Indoor Garden
During the winter when I don’t have as many cut flowers available from my garden to fill the house, I bring the plants indoors instead. This late winter indoor garden is easy to make and introduces a nice pop of color into the gray wintry ambience. Not only do these flowers lighten up gloomy days, I also love how caring for an indoor garden sets aside ten minutes in my day to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of life to water and prune the flowers. If you need some color and beauty in your life, try out this indoor garden with your favorite late winter flowers!
What You’ll Need:
-Late winter plants (I used daffodils and ranunculus)
-Upcycled glass containers (such as old Mason jars)
Remove the plant from the plastic container and gently shake the soil off of the roots or bulb. Scoop about 2-3 inches of potting soil into the bottom of your glass container, then place the plant on top of this layer of soil, taking care to be gentle with the roots. After you’ve put your plant in its new container, lightly scoop more dirt on top of the roots all the way to the top of the container, leaving about an inch at the top for watering purposes. If you are planting bulbs, leave about an inch of the bulb sticking out from the dirt.
Depending on the type of flower you’ve planted, you should water your new indoor garden about once a day. Place the plants by the windows in your home and watch them flourish!
