Top 5 Edible Plants to Grow in Your Home

Hanover Tenant Trimming Indoor HerbsIf growing fruits and vegetables is your favorite activity, don’t allow a small yard or lack of space to stop you. There are lots of edible plants that you can grow right inside your Hanover rental home or apartment! Edible plants produce natural beauty and delicious vegetables or herbs that can be used in cooking. In addition, they are not difficult to grow indoors if you have a little time and a sunny spot near a window, patio, or balcony. To get your edible indoor garden started, we’ll go through some of the plants that thrive in a pot or planter.

1. Strawberries

One great possibility for your indoor edible garden is a strawberry plant. Even though several strawberry plants that grow outdoors require a great deal of space, other variants are more compact and perfect for container gardening. Strawberry plants look gorgeous in hanging pots or freestanding containers and offer both pretty blossoms as well as sweet fruit.

2. Peppers

There are various varieties of both hot and sweet peppers that are easy to grow indoors. For example, jalapenos and other usual hot peppers can grow nicely together with other edible indoor plants. Then again, if you prefer sweet peppers, look for varieties that are suitable to grow in containers.

3. Tomatoes

Tomatoes are another great option for your indoor garden. It would be great to buy determinate tomato plant varieties, which are often smaller plants but still producing some of the premium tomatoes you’ll ever taste. Whether you pick cherry tomatoes or a variety large enough to slice, growing tomatoes in your rental home is quick and easy.

4. Lettuce

Easy to grow, lettuce tends to grow in cooler weather, which makes it an ideal option for an indoor garden. In addition, lettuce tends to grow quickly from seed, so you may have a garden-fresh salad or garnish in a matter of days.

5. Herbs

In case you don’t have adequate space or want to begin your indoor garden with the basics, growing herbs is a decent choice. Many herbs can be cultivated on a windowsill, and fresh herbs taste great in any dish. To begin with, consider cultivating basil, mint, or thyme in small pots or a container. All of these herbs are easy to grow and do not require a lot of space.

Finally, your indoor garden can be as modest or as elaborate as you want – and as space will allow. Yet, with numerous wonderful options, you’re likely to satisfy your green thumb with an indoor garden.
