Create a colorful display in your hanging garden this winter
If you were using the GeoPot Hanging Garden Pot outside this summer, there’s some great news: you can use the same pots to bring colorful hanging gardens inside, as well! Now that your summer flowers are past their prime, it’s time to move your hanging garden inside and give the interior of your home a whole new look that will include plants that flower in winter, bedding plants like primrose, and trailing vines to add an interesting visual twist. Let’s look at the five steps to create a stunning winter hanging garden:
Planning your raised bed for spring? Here’s what grows best
What’s important when planning on using a raised bed planter for your grow is knowing what is going to grow best in it. The most important aspect of this is knowing the depth of your bed, and what plants will take well to the fairly shallow area they have to root in. Geoplanter raised garden beds are some of the most durable raised beds that combine the benefits and aeration of GeoPots with a raised bed construction that requires no tools and can be put up in a matter of minutes. Available in 12” and 14” depths, there are any number of vegetables, herbs, and flowers that can be grown in them, let’s take a look:
6 reasons why a grow tent is great for winter gardening
For those growers who want only the highest-quality vegetables, grown as healthy and as sizable as though they were outdoors in the spring. While this may seem like a tall order in the middle of winter – it’s completely doable. The Light Room Grow Tent is the secret to making this happen, and for plenty of good reasons! If you’re thinking about taking the next step with your indoor grow, here are 6 reasons a Light Room Grow Tent is the best next move for your indoor plants:
Indoor plants can be a mess; keep your furniture protected
Taking on a houseplant is as much of a responsibility as bringing home a new pet – and it could be argued that it’s even more of one. Those who were looking for nothing more than a nice addition to their winter interior decorating may be frustrated when they realize how much work needs to be done to keep plants healthy inside the house. For those who aren’t afraid of a clean-up job or two, there are products that can help keep the mess down to a minimum. Left Coast Plastic Saucers help to catch the water that may get all over the place, along with wayward soil pushed over the edge of a pot. While they can’t help with pests or over-eager pets, one preventative measure is better than none! Left Coast Plastic Saucers are made of clear plastic, so there’s no worry about coordinating with the color scheme of your favorite couch or wallpaper. In addition, Left Coast Plastic Saucers help capture excess water and encourage downward root growth as roots stretch down through the growing media to meet the water in the bottom of saucer – that makes them twice as helpful!
GeoPots are handier than you may realize
To avoid problems with you r back, and grow your plants healthier, it’s best to invest in a GeoPot Fabric Pot with Handles. GeoPot Fabric Pots with Handles outdo the terra-cotta in a number of ways; combining excellent breathability, high drainage, and sturdy construction to deliver a long lasting, dependable fabric pot product. The handles are the high point – making it easier to carry, move, and reposition throughout the season without any undue strain on your back…or your plants.
Hanging gardens are great for every season
It can be boring to look at the same set of rooms, day after day, but who wants to spend the time and money to redecorate each season? The great thing about hanging gardens is that they can give your home a new look – every season! You can choose different annual flowers each spring, and then plant some veggies in the fall. If you’re using the GeoPot Hanging Garden, the sturdy geotextile fabric will last season-after-season – just give it a good wash before changing out your grow.
Is it hot in here? Let a humidity dome help support your sprouts!
To help protect your seedlings from chilly nighttime temperatures – even indoors – adding an iHort Humidity Dome will make one part of this process easier. The dome protects the tender new growth from unwelcome drafts and helps creates an optimal humidity environment for them. The iHort 7" Humidity dome fits snugly on the 1020 carrier tray, and it has vents that allow for adjustment of humidity to support the growth of your seedlings.
