Indoor

If you do not have a backyard or front yard, then you can plant things inside. Small plants like herbs, tomatoes and flowers can easily grow indoors. All you need to do is make sure you have the right supplies and the right care tips and tricks for each specific plant. Some of the common supplies include containers, soil, a watering can and sunlight. Before planting anything, make sure to read up on what each plant needs (water amount, type of soil and amount of sunlight).

Outdoor

For homeowners that have a backyard or front yard, you can easily create yourself an outdoor spring garden. There are many types of gardens that you can build. Some homeowners stick to pots and containers, while others go all out and create gardening plots out of wood or metal containers. We recommend making a list of all the plants you want to grow as well as the space you have in your yard. From there, you can find the perfect container to house all your spring plants.

Care Tips

Now that you have your garden ready to go, it is time to understand some care tips.

  • Label your containers: Mark the containers with the plant’s name and when you planted them.
  • Cover the seeds: Start the seeds under direct sunlight, but as soon as they start to emerge from the soil, place plastic wrap over your containers. The high humidity will self-water your plants.
  • Maintain the garden: Keep an eye on your garden. Make sure to water them, add new mulch and prune dead or damaged areas. The more you take care of your plants, the longer they will stay alive.
