How’s your lockdown going? It’s a question we’ve probably all been asked in recent months. But if you’re stuck at home, all alone then you might need something to cheer you up. And if you’re environment is messy or not to your liking this might be contributing to your lockdown blues.

And one of the best ways to solve this issue is to start an indoor garden. Not only will the indoor plants look great and give your room a whole new look they will also give you responsibility.

Your daily indoor gardening will give you something to do and take your mind off working from home or not being able to go out.

Here’s everything you need to know about indoor gardening.

1. Passionflower

The passionflower is a climbing plant. This means that it climbs up the windowsill or wall as it grows giving your room the feeling of a greenhouse.

You might think they are annoying because they need tending too often but with the right pruning techniques, you can feel as if you are inside a well-kept botanical garden and not a jungle. 

With the passionflower, you also have the added bonus of being able to contain it within some very pretty baskets that can hang all-around your desk or window. 

2. The Juniper 

The juniper is a great plant for you to keep inside. The ‘Nana’ Juniper is the best of this king of all plants that you should definitely keep in your living room where it can really thrive.

It’s a big thick evergreen plant that is nice and bushy. You need to find a container that allows it to grow from its base. You could consider a heavy industrial plant pot or a metal bucket. 

Another plant you could grow at home as an alternative to the Juniper is the golden shrimp plant though these require special attention. 

3.Mandarian Oranges 

If you are worried about getting COVID-19 then the best thing to do is to get in shape and to eat more healthy. A healthy diet will also make you feel happier and more able to cope with the challenges of the day.

And there’s no better way of starting a healthier diet than getting your daily dose of vitamin C in the way of oranges from your indoor garden. 

A Mandarin orange tree is the perfect tree to keep in your indoor garden. You need a pot with wide spacious storage at the bottom that can drain very easily. Remember they can grow to 6 feet tall so you need to remember to trim them. 

Create Your Own Indoor Garden

If you’re suffering from lockdown blues and you live on your own then creating your own indoor garden can be the best way to solve your problems. It gives you responsibility by tasking you with watering and looking after your plants every day.

It can also brighten up your room and make you feel as if you are outdoors at a time when your access to the outside world has been limited.
