Is your green thumb stifled by a lack of outdoor space? Not to worry. You can turn your home into a flourishing, vibrant garden in even the coziest rooms with these space-saving interior gardening ideas.
Decorate your walls with living art. Vines and climbing plants bring lots of greenery into the room without monopolizing floor space. Just give them something to grow up or down, and you’ll have a veritable vertical garden in no time. Excellent indoor vines and climbers include: ivy, Black Eyed Susan vines, philodendron, creeping fig and purple heart (also known as wandering Jew) plants.

Use a pallet and hanging mason jars to create a wall garden in your home – it’s perfect for vines and other climbing plants.
