My tips to extend growing season

There’s so long until spring when the bulbs start coming out of the ground and you start to feel the liveliness in the garden again. My garden is wild right now, some may call it decay. It’s fall and it’s starting to get cold. To maintain the feeling of lushness and vigor, that special greenhouse like feeling, I’ve made my very own energy filled cave in my office. I’m cultivating my window frame. I refuse to be in a lack of plant life.

It’s actually quite easy to extend the gardening season and to keep the feeling of life and lushness. You can easily do it many places, in a window frame, on a shelve in your bathroom, on a dresser, or anywhere else you find fitting. I’ve taken my cactuses, chili plants, geraniums and other summer plants that I used to have I pots on my terrace, and put them in my office with my winter houseplants. The effect comes when you gather so MANY plants in one small spot.
