Dish gar­dens bring joy of gar­den­ing in­side for the win­ter

StarMetro Edmonton - - DAILY LIFE -

There is no need for gar­den­ers to go dor­mant along with their land­scape when cold weather ar­rives.

Ar­rang­ing plants in small dishes and pots can be an en­joy­able in­door al­ter­na­tive at the end of the sum­mer grow­ing sea­son.

Dish gar­dens gen­er­ally con­sist of sev­eral dif­fer­ent plants ar­ranged to­gether in a sin­gle con­tainer.

The most im­por­tant thing is choos­ing plants need­ing sim­i­lar sur­round­ings and care.

In­door gar­dens, with

their minia­ture, low-main­te­nance plants, thrive in small spa­ces, and that makes them a nat­u­ral fit for suc­cu­lents.

Use ma­te­ri­als to ac­ces­sorize like rocks, lichens, sticks and acorns. More tips at thes­tar.com/life
