20 Below: IKEA Greenhouse

Did I ever mention that I’m currently attempting to grow basil, parsley, and tomatoes…in a sunny corner in my apartment (for now)? It’s been fun to watch everything grow from seeds and I really didn’t have much faith that anything would come up.

If I really discover my green thumb this spring, I’d love to try out a greenhouse like this inexpensive version from Ikea. I imagine it would help the plants out right from the initial stages.

Have you grown anything indoors before? What’s worked? Do you have a mini greenhouse for your herbs?

    I CAN NOT get herbs to survive…they grow…then die off quickly…

    i bought sky planters and I am hoping with the water resovoir, i can finally get some fresh herbs into my life!

      Thanks for your comment! This is the first time I’ve ever tried to grow herbs so I don’t really have much advice. I planted the seeds in small pots and then they sprouted. Most of them anyway. I don’t know what sky planters are…but I hope they work out for you!
