Fresh plants are a great way to brighten up any space, but buying flowers at the store can be expensive. Why not enjoy fresh plants without the expense by creating your own windowsill garden? These small gardens require minimal work, are appealing to the eye, and don't take up too much space.
First, you'll need to decide which type of plants you'd like to grow. An herb garden is an easy project for novice gardeners, as herbs are simple to grow and require minimal care. (Plus, your favorite herbs will be within arm's reach!) Even when it's cold outside, herbs can flourish as long as they have access to sunlight. Check out this list of the best herbs to grow. If you're seeking something more decorative, succulents are also easy to grow, provided they receive plenty of sunshine and aren't over-watered.
Plants can grow in many different types of containers. If you're tight on space, opt for ceramic pots or unusual containers like mason jars, tea pots, and old soup cans. For inspiration, check out this article.
