Top 5 Edible Plants to Grow in Your Home

Saginaw Tenant Trimming Indoor HerbsIf growing fruits and vegetables brings you joy, there’s no need to let a small yard or lack of space hold you back. There are a variety of edible plants that you can grow right inside your Saginaw rental home or apartment! Edible plants deliver natural beauty and delicious vegetables or herbs that you can use in your cooking. They are also quite simple to grow indoors if you have some time and a sunny spot near a window, patio, or balcony. To get your edible indoor garden started, we will discuss a couple of plants that prosper in a pot or planter.

1. Strawberries

One ideal option for your indoor edible garden is a strawberry plant. While many strawberry plants that grow outdoors take a great deal of area, some species are more compact and perfect for container gardening. Strawberry plants look lovely in hanging pots or freestanding containers and offer both pretty flowers as well as sweet fruit.

2. Peppers

There are many varieties of both hot and sweet peppers that are easy to grow indoors. For instance, jalapenos and other famous hot peppers can grow well with other edible indoor plants. Or, if you prefer sweet peppers, choose the ones that are meant to grow in containers.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are another great option for your indoor garden. It is important to get determinate tomato plant varieties, which seem to be smaller plants, however, still producing some of the finest tasting tomatoes you’ll ever encounter. It doesn’t matter if you opt for cherry tomatoes or a variety huge enough to slice; growing tomatoes in your rental home is very easy.

4. Lettuce

Easy to grow, lettuce tends to thrive in cooler weather, making it another smart option for an indoor garden. And lettuce tends to grow quickly from seed, so you may experience a garden-fresh salad or garnish in a relatively short amount of time.

5. Herbs

If you don’t have a lot of space or need to begin your indoor garden with the basics, growing herbs is a brilliant choice. Many herbs may be grown on a windowsill, and fresh herbs taste delicious in any dish. To get started, consider picking basil, mint, or thyme in small pots or a container. All of these herbs are easy to grow and don’t require a lot of space.

At last, your indoor garden can be as basic or as extravagant as you’d want – and as space will allow. However, with such countless extraordinary choices, you’ll make certain to fulfill your green thumb with an indoor garden.
