Compensating for the absence of mother nature

An increasing number of people don’t live in houses and growing food is vastly more difficult if you live in an apartment as the garden can be difficult to reach from the tenth floor! The answer for those that like food they have grown themselves may be an indoor garden.

Why not recycle a large ice cream tub? This will not only benefit the environment but will also keep your costs down, especially when you compare it to buying organic products from your local supermarket.

Indoor gardening requires more personal attention as your produce won’t benefit from the natural influence of mother nature. It is more difficult to grow food indoors due to the availability of light being far more limited. This necessitates that you find a room that gets a minimum of six hours of sunlight each day.

Most vegetables, particularly tomatoes and lettuce, thrive on a plentiful supply of water. You do, however, have to be very careful as too much watering can cause them to go rotten.
