With spring’s arrival (soon, we hope), now’s the perfect time to get started on a garden. If you live in a cold weather area like I do, start seedlings indoors, moving them outside after the danger of frost has passed. There are tons of beautiful vessels and useful kits for getting started, and you don’t need a lot of space to get some home grown greenery.

With the availability of beautiful planters, pots, and garden accessories, even people who don’t have a green thumb can have a beautiful garden. As long as you get plants suited to your climate and follow the directions, tending to your plants can be easy and stylish.

The best thing about growing your own plants and flowers is the benefits to your creative life. Add herbs to food, make your own tea, art, soap, sachets, and you will know that the effort it took to grow your own garden was well worth it. Tag up your creations and give them as gifts for the most thoughtful and memorable tokens to family and friends.
