One of the best things about your apartment at The Landmark Lofts & Gardens is that your home is naturally illuminated with sunlight. Use that light to grow indoor plants! Gardening, whether growing vegetables in containers in front of the windows or stylish pots on your kitchen counter in an indoor herb planter, can be a fun way to grow your veggies.
Plants, Vegetables, & Herbs Best for Indoors
A quick Google search of nurseries in the New Braunfels, Texas, area reveals that there are many places you can go to buy plants and seeds. Unfortunately, many of these nurseries don’t have websites, but stores like Home Depot, Lowes, and Walmart feature garden sections that can make a good starting place while you make some phone calls or visit the other locations.
The first thing you’ll want to do is identify how much space you want to dedicate to your indoor garden. For example, do you want a small pot with kitchen herbs, or are you looking to create a planter full of vegetables? Once you know how much space you’re working with, you can choose the best plants for container growing. Tomatoes, bell peppers, herbs, chives, and strawberries are just a few of the many container-friendly plants that will add to your apartment vegetables and fruit farm.
Taking Care of Indoor Plants
The key to gardening is proper light, soil, and watering. If you’re new to indoor plants and gardening, consult the experts at a garden center. You can buy ready-made planters with their light systems or try hydroponics. As long as plants have enough light and water, they will thrive.
Indoor Plants All Year Round
Thanks to all the advances in hydroponic containers and indoor lighting, it’s easy to grow plants, herbs, and vegetables in your apartment without a balcony or taking up a lot of space. You need to be smart about which plants work well in the area you have available, and after you’ve planted them, it’s a matter of proper care. Soon you’ll have lots of vegetables to enjoy!
