You often start a vegetable garden after the frost period. But in February you can already start with sowing and growing of vegetables, herbs, plants or flowers indoors. By letting them sprout inside in a greenhouse or grow bottle or pot, the plants will be bigger and stronger when planted out in the spring. In this way your customer can enjoy the harvest even earlier this year and plant lovers will not be bored indoors.
Growing indoors under glass
The greenhouse provides optimal conditions for growing vegetables, fruits, herbs and plants. Even in small and mobile greenhouses the temperature and humidity remain higher, because the same air is contained within the greenhouse as much as possible. Do let some new oxygen into the greenhouse once a day by briefly opening the lid. And make sure the soil stays moist enough.
Only water when the soil feels a bit dry. It's best to use a plant mister for this, to avoid accidentally rinsing out the seedlings and seedlings.
The easy thing about a greenhouse is that you can put your seedlings in the greenhouse with pot and all! The small greenhouses are also easy to take outside when it's time to harden off the plants. Want to know all about our Victorian greenhouses? Read it here.
Our trendy grow bottles, pots and clocks are also extremely suitable for indoor growing of cuttings and seedlings, because with those the oxygen and moisture levels can easily be regulated. The concrete grow bottle has a concrete sphere on top that can be taken off and put on. This gives a similar effect to a self-sustaining terrarium.
Due to the small size and trendy design of the pots, they are very suitable for placing on the windowsill, the kitchen counter or close to the window. This way they catch enough light right away!
What to grow indoors in February, March and April
Most vegetables, fruits and herbs can already be sown in a greenhouse. For some vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and (garden) beans it is even a requirement to pre-sow and grow them indoors. Reserve an extra spot in the sun for them.
With for example strawberries, endive, eggplant, cauliflower, cucumber, peppers, leeks, radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, parsley, basil and celery, you can already start indoor growing now!
