Garden Therapy: Winter Tips

Since snow and ice don't make for a successful garden, most of us have to resort to satisfying our green thumb through nurturing indoor plants and kitchen window herb gardens in the Winter. To make the most of your Winter plants, try these indoor gardening tips.

  • Indoor plants will turn to follow the light, so you should rotate an indoor plant to encourage proper growth. Otherwise, your plant will likely lean to one side.
  • Concerned that your plant isn't getting enough light this Winter? If your plant has small leaves, thinner stems than usual, and its color is lighter than it has been in the Summer months, it is likely light-deficient. Try moving it closer to a window.
  • Another option is to supplement natural sunlight with artificial lighting, such as with a table lamp.

My boss and I don't have windows near our we have a cactus (he named it Spike) and bamboo named Pete. Also, to help with plant watering, there are mini aqua globes perfect for indoor plants.

Great tips. I have my spider plant hanging right by my living room window.
