As winter comes slowly, you may have a variety of activities scheduled and expectations created for the coming year. The ideal approach would be to look beyond oneself and accept responsibility for new adventures. Plants are excellent starting points!
You may be raring to visit or rounding up with your friends to hit the pubs ahead of Christmas. You can also head to your local nursery and get some green friends. Plants are maybe the finest method to bring joy throughout the cold months. So keep reading for more information.
Take a look at our top selections for this winter as we plunge into more green hopes for the oncoming new year:
- Jade Plant (Crassula ovata) is one of the most eye-catching indoor plants. The small, round leaves and the lushness come equipped with hardy properties. This charming tiny plant can overcome both hot and cold climes. You can place a jade plant against window sills or your kitchen island table for a pop of color.
- Succulents. You will have come across succulents if you visit gardening circles online. Social media has lent a benevolent marketing hand to these tiny plants. Succulents come in various shapes and sizes. These indoor plants are low maintenance. You can even stick a succulent in a tiny pot, attach a magnet, and prop it against your refrigerator door!
- Tradescantia. The tradescantia is perhaps one of the most vibrant and alien-looking plants on this list. They flourish well indoors and look great in containers that you can hang. A tradescantia will enhance the elegance of any space in which it is placed.
- Dwarf Citrus. The dwarf citrus may make you think of summer, but the exotic-looking plant is perhaps one of the prettiest plants. You can use a little zest for the room not only when it’s cold outside but for your food as well. While dwarf citruses should be kept outside for the summer, bring them in during the winter. Keep the indoor temperature at 65ºF (18ºC) for the best vegetation.
- Snowdrop (Galanthus Nivalis) may provide delicate elegance to your decor. Indoor-grown spring bulbs like snowdrops and hyacinths flourish in the shelter of your house rather than outside the confines of your home.
- Aspidistra. The plant may evoke one of George Orwell’s early novels to mind. However, the aspidistra is symbolic of the unity of a home. On a chilly night, it is all the company one requires. You won’t have any problem keeping the ‘cast iron plant,’ as it is known.
The Perfect Time for Focusing on Local Plants
This winter, allow yourself the warm company of plants. You may not have green fingers, but you can certainly begin with plants that are easy to handle. Choose small shrubs and succulents from your local nursery to support the local economy.
