There are 2 main reasons for having a garden in our home. Obviously, the first thing we notice is how it adds to our home's beauty. The greenery and flowers give a look that can only be done by natural beauty. Whether you have a front lawn or a backyard, it also gives a nice escape from the structures of the city. Another benefit from having a garden is it contributes to getting fresh air and oxygen into your home. You may even plant some herbs and vegetables. This will give you fresh produce to include in your daily cooking.
What exactly is it?
How can you have a garden if you don't have a big space for it? Or worse yet, how can you make a garden if you live in an apartment or condo? A pocket garden allows you to make use of underutilized space, no matter how small it is.
As long as the space can support plant life with a little work. Here is all you need to know about pocket gardens.
Can it fit my pocket?
Why pocket garden? Can it really fit in your pocket? Well, of course not, literally at least. It's a smaller than usual space for a garden. The key here is being creative. Any space can be converted into a pocket garden. It can be indoor or outdoor. It can be up hanging on a wall, or in a small space in between rooms. Down the stairs, in the corner of a patio, basically any space can be used. You are able to liven up the place with a little creativity.
How do I start?
Do you have a specific area in your home you are thinking of converting? Before you proceed, it is important to remember what plants need. They need soil, light, and water. Make sure the area you are looking at will be able to house all of these. Check whether you can have a bed of soil in it or a few pots to hold the soil. There should be enough light, artificial or sunlight depending on the type of plants. And lastly, the area should be able to get a little wet. Even if the plants are potted, there is always the chance water will spill. Make sure the area is safe to handle that. Lastly, make sure the plants you put will fit the environment of your pocket garden.
