Gardening For Just The Fun Of It

Just to touch briefly on the many facets to gardening. Houseplants, also known as indoor plants, brighten up the office or home and make a great hobby during those long cold months of winter. Houseplants are easy to grow and beneficial as they convert our carbon dioxide (the exhale) to oxygen.

Numerous herbs can be raised indoors as houseplants. Chives, Basil, Dill and Parsley are good choices because they can survive in the limited lighting conditions of the average home. If you are planning on transplanting these herbs to outdoors, do so after the last frost. Herbs are world renowned for flavoring and spicing up foods. Without herbs, foods would be really bland. Herb gardening is a hobby that makes cooking fun and tasteful.

Space is not a problem to start your own herb garden. Live in a condo; try growing herbs in a container on your balcony or deck or lanai. Many herbs are good indoor plants during the winter months.

Herbs are categorized as Aromatic, Culinary, Medicinal and Ornamental.
All of these factors add up making gardening a hobby that can have a significant positive impact on your health. Start planning your garden today and get ready to feel great!
