5 Plants to Start an Edible Indoor Garden
Dated: May 29 2020
There are lots of veggies, and even some fruits, that can be grown in the convenience of your home. If you’re thinking about trying your hand at an indoor edible garden, consider these plants.
This root vegetable thrives in cooler environments, so it could be great for your indoor garden. Planting carrots in the proper container is key. Your pot should be deep to give the roots plenty of room to grow.
Yes, you can grow strawberries indoors. And you don’t have to wait for the normal growing season either—you can grow them any time of year. Strawberries can be relatively easy to plant and grow and can produce lots of fruit in a small space. But here’s the catch: since you won’t have bees and other insects to pollinate your plant, you’ll have to pollinate it by hand. Don’t worry, it’s not nearly as complicated as it may sound.
The strawberry plant produces little white or red flowers. Simply take a small makeup or art paint brush and gently rub pollen from the stamen (on the outer ring inside of the bloom) onto the pistil (at the very center of the flower). Do this around the entire inner circle of the flower. In 24 to 48 hours, if the petals have begun to wilt and fall off it’s a good indication that you’ve properly pollinated the bloom and it’s on its way to producing fruit.
Tomato plants do just fine indoors. They need a good amount of sun, a large pot, and stakes or cages to help keep them upright as they grow. For a variety that’s easy to grow in containers, choose dwarf tomatoes.
Yep. Lemons. Buy an existing lemon tree to cultivate instead of starting with seeds. Find a very sunny spot in your home because your tree will need 8 to 12 hours of light each day. Water regularly, and periodically mist your tree.
Radishes are another root vegetable that can be perfect for your indoor garden since they do well in cooler environments. Make sure your pot is deep so they’ll have enough space to grow.
