Things you need to know covers all of the little things that other stores overlook -- and we put importance to.

Reasons for Indoor Gardening

Today, there are new ways to enjoy gardening by moving the garden from the carefully tilled plot in the yard to the indoor environment. New lighting technologies, home hydroponics equipment and more have extended gardening to our indoor spaces, creating new opportunities for gardeners and expanding the gardening experience. Some of the ways indoor gardening can add new benefits to the modern lifestyle include:

» Year Round Gardening - Bringing the garden indoors lets you grow everything from vegetables and herbs to foliage plants and flowers all year. By creating your own seasons, you can have the benefits of healthful food and beautiful plants year round, whatever the weather is outdoors.

» Organic Vegetables & Herbs - By growing your own vegetables and herbs indoors, you can have fresh, chemical-free produce and tasty herbs year round to assure you and your family of the freshest, most healthful food available anywhere.

» Pest-Free, Weed-Free Gardening - By gardening indoors, it is easy to keep noxious pests and weeds out of your garden. You control the environment and keep everything from rabbits and deer to plant-destroying insect pests away from your garden without the use of toxic pesticides and herbicides.

» Beautiful Interior Decorating - Gardening indoors can create gorgeous plant walls, built-in accent gardens, and an endless supply of attractive plants and flowers for any home or commercial building. From living rooms to lobbies and work areas, indoor gardens are an attractive and calming addition to any interior.

» Enjoyment - Few human activities are as relaxing and psychologically beneficial as gardening. Creating a beautiful, productive garden can give you many hours of enjoyable, rewarding activity. It's no wonder that gardening is one of the most popular hobbies. Now, you can bring it indoors and share it with everyone.

» Creative Use of Wasted Space - Indoor hydroponic gardening can convert an unused or under-utilized space to productivity. From spare rooms and basements to garages and even closets, using the spare space in your home or commercial building for interior gardening just makes good sense. Growing in special Dark Rooms can even add more control over the indoor gardening environment and separate it from living areas.

» Plants Create Oxygen - Plants naturally convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, helping to turn stale air into healthy oxygenated air. The advantages of this in our energy-saving sealed interior environments should not be ignored.

» Profitability - While most people garden for their own pleasure and lifestyle enhancement, others garden indoors for profit. Interior gardening can produce high-quality organic produce and herbs that find a ready market, especially out of season. From selling rare fresh herbs to restaurants to propagating plants for sales to other gardeners, indoor gardening can be an income-producing proposition.
