Vegetables and herbs
Not everything grows well at home, some plants simply need the open air to survive. Here is a handy overview of the tastiest vegetables and herbs that are easy to grow indoors.
Indoor vs outdoor
For the basis of an indoor vegetable garden you need three things: containers for sowing, the right soil for growing in and vegetable garden food. Planting seeds indoors is slightly different than outdoors. Find a place for the vegetable garden with plenty of daylight – usually by the window – and then buy suitable containers. After all, seeds need plenty of light in order to grow well. Go for a high vegetable garden table, cute pots or special containers for the windowsill.
It is important that seeds can germinate in the right soil. For an indoor vegetable garden, seed and cutting soil, vermiculite and organic potting soil are often used. A mixture of seed and cutting soil and vermiculite is a fine soil for plants to grow in. Before the soil goes into the containers, mix it with a little water. Not too much, as wet soil can go mouldy.
