We all love to decorate our home with fresh indoor plants. The flowers help you keep your house looking beautiful, fresh and lively. Not all plants can be grown inside, however there are plenty that can be and there are even plants that you can not grow outside which you can grow in the conservatory. Your conservatory provides a safe and warm environment to grow flowers and plants in. Conservatorie are very similar to orangeries in many ways. Orangeries and conservatories were originally designed to allow the owner to grow oranges, which they would not normally be able to grow outside.
The first thing you need to do for growing plants in your conservatory is selecting a specific area where you would like to grow the plants. Using your conservatory for growing plants does not mean that you can’t sit there to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere of your home conservatory. Make sure that you make the most of the space available without it becoming a room just full of plants and pieces of furniture, it does not want to become too cluttered. So decide thoughtfully how much area of your conservatory you would actually like to devote for planting.
Once you have decided how much of the conservatory will be used for growing plants, you will need to choose the sort of plants or flowers that you would like to have in your conservatory. While you can grow pretty much anything you want, there are a few things to think about first. You need to observe carefully that what is the temperature of your conservatory, what is its humidity level, how much time of the day your conservatory receives direct sunlight, and how much time would you need to and like to keep the conservatory windows open for some fresh air for your plants. After making your mind clear about these points, you can select the plants much easily. The best choice for the plants are obviously ones that will do well in the conservatory.
Do you want to grow any fruit or vegetables? If so you could also grow these in the conservatory alongside the flowers and plants that you have chosen. Dont forget to think about the height of any trees or vines that you plant in the conservatory though as these could soon outgrow the conservatory.
It may also be worth talking to a gardener or expert from a local garden centre for some advice about the plants to grow. The experts will also be able to help you with advice about putting them in the conservatory. Make sure that you take special care not to overcrown the plants, think how large they will be when fully grown. As well as the large plants you can pot some smaller plants in pots and put them around the conservatory on various stands and window cills.
Now after all this effort you need to take good care of your conservatory plants, so that they grow healthy and keep the conservatory environment fresh and lively.
