Designing an indoor garden?

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

I am designing an indoor garden. It will be located in a glass sunroom/conservatory. Unfortunately, most of the books about indoor gardening are about growing plants in pots. I want to create an ACTUAL indoor garden — lavender, jasmine, ferns, irises — planted in soil beds.

What I want to know is:
1. Whether there are any books or websites on the subject.
2. Whether the plants I’ve mentioned would grow in good indoor conditions, and any other plant suggestions (preferably plants with flowers!)

    Indoor Gardening in the city?

    Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

    I have sunny windows and I already have chosen some herbs to grow.

    Do you have suggestions for flowers that will be happy growing indoors in the city. I won’t be planting before February because I don’t think they will do as well if I don’t wait for spring to arrive … kind of planting off-season for this part of the country (northeastern U.S.) How about: nasturtium, marigolds, nicotiana,
    baby’s breath, some petunias … some tall forget-me-not, alyssum … do you think they would resent being
    put into smallish pots … I would like to crowd in as much as I can, but is that ok? Have you any suggestions for what might be happy indoors… I keep wanting to grow moon flowers but I know that won’t work … but they smell so good. Would jasmine work. And gardenias. Somehow, I must get my apartment smelling like a greenhouse. Carnations…. oh, please, have you any ideas? Thank you ever so much. LPM
