Get your green thumbs ready for hanging plants, plant walls, terrariums, tiny veggie garden, and more small garden ideas you can easily do at home!
As we continue to stay at home, many of us have been bringing the outdoors in by caring for plants. So it’s no surprise that one of the gardening trends this 2021 is creating a tiny garden, balcony gardening, growing tiny veggies and fruits, building plant walls, and a lot more! Apart from it purifies indoor air and creates good vibes in your home, indoor plants can also improve your mental health. That’s why gardening shouldn’t be limited to the amount of space you have at home.
Whether you have enough space to start your own secret garden or just a tiny space for a windowsill garden, check out these creative small garden ideas you can easily recreate at your cozy abode.
Build a Plant Wall
Bring the outdoors in by building a simple plant wall made of sturdy floating shelves, small indoor plants like succulents or cactus, and trailing plants. Make sure to check if the area receives enough sunlight since many of the plants you’ll add to your plant wall needs at least 5 hours of sunlight. Group plants together with similar watering and sunlight requirements to make your gardening task easier.
Cozy Balcony Garden
One of the small garden ideas for people with balcony space is balcony gardening. It’s a perfect place to show off your plant babies and to relax after a tiring day. You can also build your own flower garden or grow your own veggies and herbs.
Grow Fresh Produce
Speaking of growing fresh produce, permaculture gardening is becoming a popular gardening hobby of most millennials because it’s convenient, saves you time and money from going on a grocery trip, and you can be sure that it’s all-natural. Consider planting annual vegetables like beans, peas, peppers, squash, and tomatoes.
Jungle-Like Reading Nook
Plants + books + a lovely view = the dream reading nook. Bookworms will absolutely love this idea! Don’t forget your cup of hot cocoa or your favorite cocktail drink and cozy blanket.
Lush Vertical Garden
Got little floor space? Don’t stress because you can still bring the outdoors in by hanging trailing plants. Use all the available wall space in your home and decorate it with plants, such as Pothos, English Ivy, Fern plants, Burro’s Tail, or Trailing Jade.
Make It Multi-Purpose
One of the small garden ideas you can try at home is to create a multi-purpose space, like this terrace by Studio Ashby from House Beautiful. It doubles as a dining space and a hangout spot filled with different types of plants. Add string lights or fairy lights to create a romantic vibe.
Start a Mini Flower Garden
If you want to add pops of color in your home, opt for flowering plants, such as African Violets, Orchids, Roses, and Lavender.
Start With Something Simple
One of the small garden ideas that you can turn into a hobby is creating terrariums. It’s easy and fun to do! Trust us, you don’t need a green thumb to design your own terrarium. Plus, you can give it as a gift to your friends who are plant enthusiasts or family members.
Windowsill gardening is perfect for small space dwellers since it doesn’t require a ton of space to build one. Add small indoor plants, such as succulents, cacti, herbs, leafy greens, flowers, or small root veggies. Remember that a windowsill garden requires at least 5-8 hours of sunlight. Similar to the plant wall, group plants together that require the same light and water needs to make your gardening task easier.
