Some Secrets for Growing a Beautiful Beirut Apartment Garden
Most folks who live in Beirut’s apartments have probably decided that it wouldn’t be practical to try to have any type of garden. This can be such a depressing thought that there are apartment dwellers who simply move into a house with a yard. Other folks simply limit themselves to purchasing a couple of houseplants to hide their disappointment.
Well, the good news is that it is very doable to have a great garden even in a small apartment. We’ll give you some great tips and ideas that will get you started.
Take an honest look at the space you have for a garden and make sure you will be able to use it successfully for the garden you envision. You could decide, for instance, to turn your dining room table into a garden area like a lot of people do. Is your dining room table really expendable? You have to analyze this very objectively. Is it really practical to lose the use of your dining room table? When you identify a space within your home that would work for a garden, make sure you don’t plan an overabundance of plants for the space. Be realistic!
Plan to purchase some grow lights to help your plants thrive. Maybe you think that grow lights are only used for plants that have to be kept out of sight. In reality, if you don’t have a spot that has full sunlight access, your plants may need a grow light or two to thrive.
If you have grow lights, there are more places you can put your plants because you can use areas that are shady or that have little sunshine. Grow lights turn up at flea markets, garage sales, and in second hand stores, so look there first. Sometimes they can be a bit pricey if you buy them new.
You might appreciate the advantages of hanging plants. Hanging plants are a great way to garden when you have limited space available for your containers. You can buy support hardware that makes it possible to suspend larger, heavier pots from your ceiling, so the roots have room to grow. However, sometimes this is not the best choice. With smaller plants in small containers there are no limits. You can hang as many of these as you want and they will grow well. Hanging plants are a better choice if you have kids or pets that may want to poke around in the soil of the containers. Plants are more successful if they are undisturbed. The strategies you can use to create your apartment garden are unlimited. Many folks have beautiful gardens in their homes without the benefit of a balcony or patio. Your secret to success is to learn what you can and then put your plan into action, with patience. Don’t expect instant success. A perfect garden is a dream come true if you don’t give up. However, given enough time and work, your garden will flourish and bring you much enjoyment. So quit moping and start doing your research!
