Vertical gardening is perfect for small homes, such as apartments, condos, studios, and townhouse, as well as houses with limited spaces. It is more practical to grow your veggies, fruits, and herbs indoors. To beautify your indoor garden, use decorative towers, in either wood or ceramics. They make great props to decorate a room in a particular color or theme, as you enjoy your green indoor environment with healthier air quality.
- Strawberry patch tower
- Gronomics planter looks like a shelf case for growing veggies and herbs.
- Elevated container garden
- Stacked pots involve placing dirt in a pot, before stacking with another pot and placing dirt in that pot, and then the same with another pot. This stacking is usually done with pots of different sizes, from a large pot at the bottom to the smallest pot on the top. Then, fill in the dirt around the sides, before planting small edibles around the pots.
- Use the proper planting mix, feed, and water for each plant. Regularly fertilize and water
- Gronomics shelf tower has drip irrigation system, which is perfect for busy people or people who don’t have a green thumb.
- Don’t use garden soil in a container because it is mostly compost. The soil also needs minerals and organic ingredients.
- When picking an indoor location, edible plants need an area that gets 6 to 8 hours of the sun per day, but you might need to change the location during different seasons.
- Add fertilizer to the soil in the shelf planter system. Organic fertilizer has nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Use a time-release fertilizer that lasts for 3 to 4 months.
- Place the smaller plants—herbs, strawberries, green onions, patio tomatoes, and warm-weather edibles—tomatoes on the top row.
- If the basil becomes too long, just break the top of the stem area and use it for cooking.
- Strawberry pots with 6 holes can also be used for lettuce.
- Herbs, such as parsley and cilantro, should be added to the top row with the edibles in order to reduce aphids.
- Consider an elevated planter in order to prevent cute rabbits from eating your plants. (But maybe leave out some extra food for the wildlife because they need to eat, too, as well as feed their kids).
