Indoor plants have been bred over time to thrive in temperatures that are characteristic of a home. Most indoor plants like to be in about 70 degree temperatures, plus or minus 5 degrees. They need the temperature to be that warm so that they can grow. If this is a little too warm for your house, grow your organic plants under a heat lamp.
To make the most of your time in the garden, you should store all of your tools and implements in a close, accessible location. Put them into a basket you carry with you, or use an apron with many pockets and hanging loops. Tools you’ll need to garden efficiently include towels, gloves, pruning shears and other plant-specific tools.
Mix used coffee grounds into your soil. The grounds contain essential nitrogen, which will benefit your plants in many ways. Your plants will really bloom if they get the nitrogen they need from coffee grounds or compost or diluted urea.
Spacing is one important factor in gardening. It’s common to not think about how much space a plant will need once it’s full grown, and you don’t want to crowd your garden. You will need to provide this space to provide ample room and because you need air circulating to your garden. Therefore, ensure that you allow for ample spaces between your seedlings.
An old laundry basket works great for gathering produce from your garden. A benefit of using something like a laundry basket is that it can strain for you, as well as hold a large amount of produce. The basket won’t be affected by the water and it will drain right off as though it were poured into a large sieve.
