WHY CREATE MY INDOOR VEGETABLE GARDEN?
Cultivating an indoor vegetable garden will above all allow you to benefit from fruits, vegetables and aromatic herbs with incomparable freshness . Indeed, the products sold today in supermarkets have lost a large part of their nutrients and therefore of their taste before reaching the shelves, even for organic products . In terms of taste and freshness, nothing will replace foods and condiments grown directly in your home.
Growing food at home has beneficial effects for your health . In fact, you can enjoy healthy, unprocessed and GMO-free products all year round. Their consumption will allow you to have a more balanced diet and better for your health.
The economic aspect of a home culture is to be considered. By growing your own fruits and vegetables, you help reduce food waste since you only sow and harvest according to your needs. No more losses!
The environmental aspect is not negligible either. Indeed, your home crops reduce to zero the food miles usually traveled by the products, including organic, that you buy at the supermarket. Plastic over-packaging , which is useless and harmful to the planet, is thus reduced.
WHICH PLANTS TO CHOOSE FOR MY GARDEN?
The varieties of fruits, vegetables or aromatic herbs that you decide to grow depend entirely on your desires!
Before sowing varieties in your vegetable garden, we advise you to find out about their properties because each variety requires special attention (water or sunlight requirements for example).
You may wonder what to do in the vegetable garden in winter or spring, because depending on the season , you should favor the planting of certain seeds .
