When choosing the right plants to grow at home, it’s best to stick to growing plants suited to your skill level as well as to where you live. Weather conditions greatly affect plant growth, and certain considerations should be made for gardens that are kept indoors.
Different plants have different needs in regards to sunlight, water, temperature, soil and fertilizer. As a result, certain plants are far more suited to the indoors than others.
With very fine seeds and a longer germination period, herbs such as basil, chives, rosemary, sage, tarragon and thyme are particularly well-suited for an indoor garden of edible plants. Vegetables such as lettuce, peas, carrots and spinach also thrive indoors and are perfect to have on hand when tossing up a salad or making some homemade pasta.
Even if you’re just starting out as a gardener, these plants can be successfully grown at home, provided you follow the proper instructions that come with the seed packets and adjust for temperature, sunlight and time of year. Choosing the right plants will help ensure you have a beautiful and successful indoor garden.
