Organic Indoor Gardening

With organic indoor gardening you are doing the same thing inside your home or greenhouse as you would with your outdoor organic garden. Not all plants are able to grow inside, so it is important to do research on the plant seeds you intend to grow before you begin your indoor garden. One type of plant that you can grow indoors (and is highly recommended to begin growing them indoors anyway) are tomatoes. Tomatoes like warm climates, so when its still a little frosty outside, you can begin growing them indoors until spring comes, then transplant them outside in your organic garden.

When doing organic indoor gardening with tomatoes, it is important that you grow determinate tomatoes. These have vines that stop growing after a certain length, unlike the indeterminate tomatoes whose vine keeps growing. The determinate tomatoes can be grown in a container as well.

Other organic indoor gardening plants you can grow are radishes, buckwheat, wheatgrass, salad greens and sunflowers. These plants are very easily grown because they can sit on your windowsill and still grow as healthy as they would if they were being grown outdoors. With indoor gardening you can grow all types of plants you like all year round. Another great thing about organic indoor gardening is that you have fewer worries about pests. You won’t have to worry about harmful insects and weeds coming after your precious organic fruits and vegetables. No moles, voles or deer eating away at your garden; how good is that?

You just need to make sure that your indoor garden has enough sunlight. Rotating the plant around to different areas around the house is a great idea for making sure that your plant is getting the maximum amount of sun exposure throughout the day. You can also create compost for your indoor garden, just as you would for your outdoor garden. Compost can be created from grass clippings, peelings from the kitchen and dried leaves. This is just as good as any organic fertilizer out there. Make sure not to use any synthetic fertilizer if you decide to purchase some for your indoor garden.

Whatever type of garden you decide to grow, make sure to give it as much care as you would if it were growing season in your town. Then when growing season does come around you can transplant your organic indoor gardening efforts to your outdoor garden.
