Indoor Vegetable Gardening How to Tips


by

Indoor vegetable gardening is a great way to have fresh vegetables when you do not have any ground to grow them in. You can enjoy vegetables that are super healthy and in many cases far better than the vegetables that are grown commercially. Commercially grown vegetables can sometimes not have the nutrients and quality that you can get by growing your own.

Here are some basic things to get you started. You can get more tips from your local gardening supply in your area as to what types of supplies to use for your garden.

1)      You will need soil. You purchase soil in bags and mix it according to the directions on the bag.

2)      Of course you will need containers to put the soil in and grow the vegetables. So you can get all kind of containers for this purpose a local nursery will have many different kinds of pots and you may want to choose them on visual appeal as well as how well they will fit the plants you want to grow. Make sure you have a couple of inches at the top of your containers for when you are watering them and the containers need drainage as well. Ask the people at the nursery to show you some good pots for the types of plants you want to grow. This is also a great place to get the plants you need of course.

3)      Typically you need a bright sunny window to grow the plants in. South facing is usually best but use common sense too. What window provides the most sunlight throughout the day? Also remember to check the plants and make sure they are not getting too hot. Too much heat can damage them so if it is really hot at that window you may want to use the shade part of the day.

4)      Make sure you label the containers so you know what you have growing there.

5)      A plant stand is a great way to get lots of plants growing in one area.

These are just a few tips to get your going on your way. Enjoy those wonderful fresh veggies!
