Spring is finally here! It’s the season of rebirth, of new greenery and the perfect time to start growing things. It’s easy to liven up your living space and bring some spring spirit into your Sudbury home. The Panoramic Properties blog team wants to help you make your life a little more colourful with some DIY balcony and indoor garden ideas we love.
Tea Cup Garden
Add a splash of colour to your windowsill with a simple tea cup garden. Whether you want fresh herbs within easy reach or you want to be reminded to stop and smell the flowers, a tea cup with some potting soil or floral foam is all you need.
Tiered Galvanized Herb Garden
You can make your own Tiered Herb Garden in a corner of your balcony by stacking different sized galvanized containers. Fill each container with potting soil and plants that will work for the light conditions on your balcony. Drill a hole in the smaller containers and stack them on top of the largest base container. This will allow water to trickle down from top to bottom, or you can use the slow drip irrigation method below.
DIY Slow Drip Irrigation
If you have trouble remembering to water your plants or you want to be able to go away for a few days without having to wrangle a friend into being your temporary water bearer, then a DIY slow drip irrigation system is for you. It sounds complicated but it couldn’t be more simple. Use an appropriate sized plastic water bottle or soda bottle, drill holes in the cap, fill the bottle with water and insert in the soil. The water will drip into the soil as needed, just refill the bottle as necessary.
The Panoramic Properties blog team hopes these ideas help put you into the spring swing of things. Be sure to choose plants that will thrive under your specific light conditions.
