    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
