4 Tips For People Starting Off With Urban Gardening

Given that more and more people are adopting urban gardening as a way of life, expert advice would be more than welcome.

Here are 4 tips that will help those who are starting off:

1: Start with an easy plant

Experts recommend plants from the dracena family since this is both low-maintenance and is fashionable too. There are varieties to pick spanning both 4 inches to 6 to 7 inches as well. This is because they are very easy to take care of. Apart from this, they are bright-light, low-light tolerant as well as good air purifiers.


2: It’s a tough season

It’s a tough season for house plants and this can lead to some of them going dormant or even being stressed. This ultimately leads to leaf drop which takes in place in January or February due to your heaters running and low light.

3: Keep your plant on a diet

During the winter months, it is best to cut back on water and fertilizer. Ideally, you should avoid this from mid-late fall to spring time. Also, avoid watering during the winter months as plants won’t be that active either. Your heaters can also dry out plants quicker than usual. Another way to deal with dryness is to mist your tropical plants too.

4: Prune as much as possible

When you cut back plants the right way, this will turn out to be more helpful than harmful. Make sure you do this during the low-light season as it will not support that massive growth. Yet, do not remove more than one-third of the foliage.
