Gardening activities for 2020 are focused on making the most of what you have.
Owners and renters of small homes, condos, and apartments are finding creative ways to incorporate green into their lives—no matter the size of their space. One of the best and easiest ways to add green to a small space is through vertical gardening.
Vertical gardening is for anyone—whether you rent a small apartment with a windowsill or own an acre of land. Here are some simple vertical gardening ideas you can use to add green to your space:
- Mount a staghorn fern and hang it as a focal point
- Propagate plants in wall vases
- Arrange wall planters in your kitchen for growing herbs or microgreens
- Build a terra cotta planter wall on your fence
- Create your own vertical jungle with a living wall kit
- Use wrought iron flower pot rings to elevate planters on your porch or balcony
Turning to Tech for Houseplant Help
Houseplants continue to get more and more popular as people recognize their mood-enhancing effects and contributions to décor. If you’d love to join the houseplant movement but need some help keeping your plant babies alive, you’re not alone! More and more gardeners are turning to garden tech to help keep their indoor greenery green:
If your indoor space doesn’t get enough light, try these grow light gardens from Gardener’s Supply.
Unsure if your light is right? There’s an app for that! With the Plant Light Meter, simply point your phone camera towards the light source to see how much light is available.
If you’re more interested in growing edible plants than ornamental plants, try Miracle-Gro's Twelve Indoor Growing System.
If you need help remembering to water (you’re not the only one!), give self-watering pots a try.
Bonus: Before bringing plants indoors, make sure they’re safe for your pets.
DIYing & Repurposing
In addition to countless DIY tutorials, a quick Google search reveals thousands of ideas for repurposing items and making them new again. Here are just a few clever garden-related repurposing projects we like:
- A flower planter created out of a cracked birdbath.
- A hanging planter created out of a frame.
- A succulent container created out of a letter holder.
- A wall planter created out of a vintage wall sink.
In addition to beautiful garden projects, there are also lots of ideas for repurposing garden items for practical purposes. For example, plastic nursery pots can be used to start seeds or as containers for collecting produce from your garden.
