Spring might turn out to be a short-lived season in West Michigan and the Greater Lansing area this year, but you can still get your greens growing. Although it may be too cold to start working out in the garden, there’s no reason you can’t get a head start with your plants indoors.
Whether you’re planning a garden for your backyard or you intend to add some decorative greenery to the front of your home, you can get started while the wind, or snow, is still blowing. It doesn’t take a lot of work to sprout some seeds in your kitchen – just some soil, water and of course, light. Click Here to Read 5 Tips for Starting Seeds Indoors.
Starting your plants inside can also bring some bright colors to your West Michigan kitchen. Nothing says Spring like bright green plants poking up from the soil, so putting a few trays full of sprouting seeds in the kitchen sunlight will brighten up the room while it’s still cold and gray outside.
Herb gardens are easy to start too, and the hardy herbs do well inside. You don’t need a lot of space, just some room near a sunny window and some occasional water. Home Depot also has some simple tips for growing herbs indoors, click here to read what they say.
Gardeners Supply is another great, informative resource for getting the greens growing in your kitchen or any other room that gets plenty of sunlight. They can also provide gardening supplies, but don’t forget to visit the Earth Week Celebration Grand Opening at Cooks Crossing for free refreshments and free wildflower seeds.
