Baby It's Cold Outside

Windowsill Gardening - Here's a great tip for this bitterly cold and icy weather from welovebearwood's favourite gardening blog, Andrew's Plants .

"We love it. Do you?

There is nothing better on a cold day than building yourself a small garden on your windowsill. At this time of year it gives all of the joy of gardening without you having to get cold, wet and dig through layers of snow. The only limit is your imagination.

Windowsill gardens can be full of foliage and form a frame to your view of the world outside. They can work as small herb gardens adding convenient flavour to your cooking and smells to your room. You can create windowsill desert gardens full of cacti and succulent foliage that look like they belong to another planet.

At a time when parents are having to entertain children during snow days – when school is cancelled – windowsill gardening provides a great alternative to sitting your kids in front of a television. These tiny gardens can introduce children to gardening and growing in a very controlled space. Children love to wake up in the morning and run to see how their very own windowsill garden has developed over night. You will be surprised how often you check the progress of your windowsill garden on your way out of the house each morning.

Pop into our new shop and we can help you put together a windowsill garden of your own."
