While winter still lingers outside, you can start spring early in the comfort of your home by engaging in these indoor plant activities.

Revitalize Your Indoor Garden

Begin by giving your indoor plants a thorough shower to wash off the dust accumulated over the winter.

Removing any dry leaves will also freshen up their appearance.

Now is the perfect time to start fertilizing your plants, a routine that could continue through summer and until October.

If it’s been a while since you last changed the soil, don’t wait any longer.

Fresh soil and fertilizer will give your plants a much-needed boost for the upcoming growth season.

Grow Your Own Microgreens

Micro herbs are becoming increasingly popular for indoor gardening.

They grow quickly and provide delicious additions to your meals in just two or three weeks. For instance, basil can be harvested when it has just a few leaves, adding freshness to your dishes.

Microherbs can easily be grown on wet paper towels, making them a simple, no-fuss option. You can use a variety of edible plant seeds, such as soup peas, for tasty sprouts.

Additionally, some summer plants, like chillies, should be sown now in the early winter, while it’s best to wait a little longer before starting tomatoes.

Starting your garden activities indoors can make the wait for spring feel shorter and much more productive.
