There are multiple ways to create a customizable vertical garden in your home.  If you have a wide wall, try adding a steel mesh vertical garden. A few large plants or several smaller ones will fit perfectly on this type of structure.

Another material that works with a large wall space is attaching little pots to a trellis. If you have tiny plants, consider stacking mason jars on a vertical wooden board. No matter size or space, a vertical garden can be created to fit your unique needs.

Regrow Vegetable Scraps

Introducing greenery into your home can add ingredients to your kitchen when you regrow vegetable scraps. Not only is it beneficial for the environment, but it saves the green in your wallet too.

Many vegetable scraps have roots that will grow again if they are replanted and cared for. Depending on the size of the vegetables, they can sit on a kitchen countertop or windowsill. There is satisfaction in cooking a delicious meal knowing the ingredients came from your own kitchen.

A charming addition to any living area is storing plants on a cart. Two popular ones to try are a bar cart or a serving cart. Depending on how many plants you have, select an option with one or more levels.

An appealing benefit of this type of indoor garden is these types of carts typically have wheels. This means it will be easy to move the garden around the home if you decide to redecorate.

Grow Microgreens
