1. Your own herb garden
Okay, but you’re the one who asked for it.
What You Need to Get Started
The first step to any great project is getting all of your materials together. Here’s what you need to get started:
One Planting Tray or Pot: Grow flat herb blossoms (rosemary, thyme, lavender, etc) or tall herbs like basil and parsley in trays. Pots are better for growing single plants like tomatoes and peppers. The best part about using a pot is that if you grow something that’s too big for the pot, then you can just repot the plant! It will save money on buying new pots every season if you repot your plants as they grow instead of throwing away old pots*.
1 Bigger Container (Optional): When you start growing bigger things like cucumbers and hot peppers, they’ll need more space than a tray has to offer. That’s where having a bigger container comes in handy! Use this one as a place where your herbs can go once they’ve outgrown their original container
2. Small and portable planters
Ah, spring. With the warmer weather comes the longer days and a renewed interest in the outdoors. The snow starts to melt and people are itching to sow the first seeds of the season. We’re here to help those of you who aren’t blessed with an expansive yard or a lot of space for gardening get growing!
How do you start your garden without much money or space?
One way is by using small containers that can be easily moved from indoors if it gets too hot outside (or if you just want a break from tending to them). Also, there are many things that can grow even inside your home if you plant them in compact containers. This blog will look into small containers that can be used for planting herbs and vegetables for indoor use, as well as ways to save up some cash on gardening equipment so you can afford better soil, seeds or fertilizer.
You might end up with some more than what you need at first, but don’t worry: there’s plenty of options when it comes to spreading out your harvest. You could feed your friends and family some tasty homegrown goodies, give it away to other gardeners or start trading with other growers around town.

3. Cute window gardens
Window gardens are popular for a reason: they’re useful and fun. They can be used to grow herbs and vegetables indoors or outdoors, and can even come with a built-in light source for growing in low-light environments. The variety of designs means you can find one that suits your needs and your space, whether it’s tall enough or has the perfect elevation for hanging plants from.
When I was looking into window gardens, my main concern was twofold: how they’d look and how much they’d cost (I’ve added one to our efforts to make our home feel more like home). After some research, I came up with the idea of customizing the designs so that it’s functional yet cute. A lot of custom window gardens are too large or too expensive to be practical in our space; we decided that instead of buying something off the shelf we could just design something ourselves!
4. Tabletop succulent garden
The best way to grow succulents into a lush, beautiful display is to give them space to spread out. If you have the space and the time, it’s best to plant them in a garden bed in the ground. But if you live in an apartment or don’t have the patience for regular maintenance, there are other options (like mixing them in with your regular house plants).
Succulents do well with little care, so they’re ideal for those who are just starting out gardening. They’re also great for people on-the-go and those who enjoy having something that requires little maintenance.
Succulents can also be planted together in small containers like teacups and mason jars. If you don’t have any potting soil at home, you can always use things like crushed rock or gravel from outside or even sand from the beach as mulch—none of these materials will hurt the plant. This is beneficial because these things might be available for free or cheap at places near your home (or even outside) instead of buying expensive potting soil every few months.
With that said, here are some ways that succulents can be grown indoors:
- In pots with only one plant per container
- On larger surfaces like wood planks
- In containers with multiple plants
5. A backyard greenhouse
Greenhouses are a great way to grow your own plants year-round. Greenhouses work by trapping heat in with special materials like glass and plastic, which allows you to grow plants that would otherwise not survive the cold climate. To build a greenhouse, you will need the following materials:
Labeled list of materials
A section of wood cut into a rectangle (with an area of at least 9 feet by 12 feet)
Transparent material (glass, plexiglass, or polycarbonate)
There are two ways that you can make your greenhouse cool during hot days: adding insulation and ventilating it. Insulation is useful because it will keep the temperature inside cool even if it is extremely hot outside. Ventilating your greenhouse will help remove some of the heat from the air, keeping it from getting too stuffy inside. One solution to this problem is to add windows that open up so that there is always fresh air flowing through your greenhouse. Label them for easy access next summer! Some plants that you can grow in a greenhouse include wheat, soybeans, and potatoes; these plants thrive in warm weather conditions and also require little care beyond providing them water every so often. What’s more? Your harvest won’t cost much more than what you’d pay at the grocery store!
