If one of your New Year’s plans is to start a indoor garden, here are a few tips to help.
Seeds cost less than plants so grow them from scratch and you’ll save.
Make, buy or reuse containers. Recycling your old yogurt containers work well.
Choose a convenient spot on your home to set up your garden. It should get nice, natural airflow and some sunlight but not direct sun. Initially heat is more important for seedlings than light.
Prep the soil well. Use a seed-starting or sterile potting mix.
Give your plants the right amount of water.
Make sure your openings are covered with insect screens to keep insects away as plants do tend to attract them.
