5 ways to find indoor garden spaces

01 May 2016

Got garden dreams in the urban jungle? Let’s get them growing! When you’re short on flowerbeds and veggie patches our tip is to get clever with the space you have. Here’s five of our favourite ways for finding green areas where you think you might not have any. 

Got garden dreams but only a small apartment? Here’s how to make the most of your space.

1. THINK FLEXIBLE. When you’re short on planting shelves try a trolley. Trolleys have the added advantage of being easily movable, which can be helpful for finding sunny spots, or ferrying herbs to the table.

Got garden dreams but only a small apartment? Try a room divider to make a vertical flowerbed.

2. THE GREEN DIVIDE. Room dividers are a great way to make a vertical garden that not only doesn’t take up much room but also makes a fresh way to separate your homes living areas.

3. MAXIMISE YOUR EXISTING SPACE. Most of us probably  have a few pots on the windowsill, but if you have bigger green ambitions, you could try hanging plants from above. Feeling crafty? Come see how to make a hanging textile version.

Got garden dreams but only a small apartment? Try extending your windowsill using the space inbetween windows to plant.

4. THE INBETWEENERS. The space between windows can also be prime real estate for growing. We used this wall organiser so we could properly make use of the rooms height.

Got garden dreams but only a small apartment? Try extending your windowsill using rails or a balcony outside

5. EXTEND ON OUT. Of course if you have a railing or a balcony an easy way to extend your garden is by using it for hanging pots. Maybe you’ve even got a neighbour who wouldn’t mind if you borrowed theirs?
