Spice It Up

A great use for your garden window is as a spot to grow a selection of herbs that you can use to flavor your cooking. Since the watering needs are different for each, you’ll want to grow each herb it is own pot for the best results. Consider these favorites:

  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Basil
  • Oregano
  • Chives
  • Mint

Color Pops

To many, spring is all about the gray days of winter making room for the burst of colors that spring ushers in. Choose something for your garden window that provides a pop of color that will make you smile every time you look at it. One beautiful choice is tulips—and you’ll love how easy it is to grow these garden favorites indoors. Just place some pebbles in slim glass containers and add a single tulip to each. Line up the glasses in your garden window and enjoy spring indoors even if the snow starts falling again.

Succulent Choices
