Start Indoor Gardening Today

Posted: Updated:

It's easy to feel spring in the air. While it is still a bit early to start planting outside, there are ways to make use of your green thumb and prepare for the spring gardening season.

For those of you who are already thinking spring, you can always start your planting inside. 

"If you do want to start gardening you can start some plants from seed. It's not too early to plant inside. If you have a sunny window and some space or a window sill that works well," says Handy Andy's manager Andrew Kuester.

Kuester had a few recommendations for popular spring flowers.

"Geraniums are good. People really like geraniums. They're tough. They don't require a lot of care. They're always blooming. There are also a lot of varieties of petunias out there. They are the same way. Very heat tolerant, don't require a lot of care," Kuester says. 

For a new gardener, Kuester recommended not necessarily taking the easy route. But instead, he advised to simply plant what you love.

"Think about what you like. Not about what is the easiest to care for. What colors do you like from a flower standpoint, what textures do you like? Instead of just worrying about what is easy," says Kuester.

Kuester guessed that it'll be around the first of May when gardeners can finally get their plants in the ground.

Keuster suggested window sills and garage space as good options for some indoor planting.
