Indoor gardening: get this look

indoor garden tended.wordpress.com

It’s the time of year to time to think about indoor gardening, even around here. Look at this adorable vignette in the home of a Chicago-based jewelry designer – so simple and pretty.  Growing things inside my house always makes me feel like I’m in some cool country house in Provence. This Giant Clover needs a lot of light, but any plant would look pretty in this setting. There’s really no reason not to garden indoors; if you are one of those people who can’t keep houseplants alive you can do three things:

  1. Grow only Sansevieria. I’m not really joking here, that’s pretty much what I do.
  2. Think of your houseplants the way do you cut flowers and replace them when they stop looking good.
  3. Stop overwatering. You’re killing them. Seriously, the lazier I get, the better my houseplants look.

Here are some accessories to get you started. EVERYTHING is on sale right now, so it’s a great time to style your indoor garden and then use these outdoors next summer.
