Indoor Garden

Indoor kitchen garden, lavender, chilli, succulent, curry, tin, thyme, rosemary
As some of you are aware, Andi and I have been experimenting with indoor gardening (as well as outdoor gardening). Check out this post about our hanging indoor kitchen planters. So far we’ve been having a lot of luck especially with succulents. Andi planted some in a Keen’s Curry tin. We also have a chilli plant, some lavender, rosemary, thyme and mint in the kitchen.

In the lounge room we have another large succulent and an air plant that I received for Christmas. They’re both great and don’t seem to need much sun at all. I just spray them with water once or twice a week and they’re good to go!
Apologies for the totally crap photos but if you’ve ever tried to capture a close up with an enormous amount of light behind, you’ll understand why!

I bought this beautiful little cabinet at a second hand shop for $40, which sits nicely outside on the deck. Again with 3 different succulents on top. The succulents and chilli’s are just about the only thing not dying in this scorching summer heat at the moment. Our garden is practically a straw desert at the moment so I have to make do with what little greenery is left.

This big guy seems to be liking the heat though and is getting quite big. He should be a full capsicum in no time!

  1. You guys have had a lot of heat this winter haven't you? We have had an unusually cold winter! I think it is -3 tonight here in Southern Illinois and it is usually 25 a least! I can't wait to garden. I just got my lettuce seed in today!
    Happy Valentine's Day!

    1. Oh yes! Tasmania is the coldest in Summer usually too, Australia's really facing some wild weather, but then again the whole world seems to be at the moment. Here's to hoping your lettuce go well and you keep warm Sherry!

  6. I'll trade you a little heat for some of our cold! I'm worried some of my perennial plants outdoors may not make through this harsh winter we are having. It's nice to see some greenery outside in your pictures. It looks like you've got the green thumb! Thank you for sharing it at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a happy day! ~Deborah
