Indoor Planting Projects

Now is the perfect time for indoor planting projects with the arrival of cooler temperatures.   Are you interested in creating your own indoor garden?  Have you thought about planting your own terrarium?  Or succulent garden?  Or herb garden?  Are you ready for some new houseplants to not only decorate your home but clean the air as well?  Or re-pot existing houseplants to get them ready for the winter season?

You are welcome to visit Creek Side Gardens anytime to create your own personalized garden, select a new houseplant or receive expert houseplant advise.  Your Green Team staff of gardening experts will help you plan and plant/ assemble your creation or re-pot your houseplant!

For new indoor garden creation, the steps involved are similar for each type of garden – terrarium, succulents or herbs.  Number one, choose a container to plant the garden into.  Number two, choose the plants that you would like.  Number three, place the plants into the container.  If you purchase the container and plants from Creek Side Gardens, we will provide the workspace and planting soil to get your project done.  Number four, include decorative materials if appropriate.  Number five, water the plants in and take your beautiful creation home!

Creek Side offers a good selection of starter plants and containers of all sizes for planting yourself.  You have the fun of customizing it exactly as you would like it look.  And within your budget!  Ask your Green Team member for details and we’ll show you how it’s done!
