The Garden Chat with Sandy Munro - 08 June 2019

We never seem to talk much about indoor plants these days and I don’t know why.
It was such a big thing in the past…maybe some think its old fashioned to have a plant indoors!!
If you consider our outdoor challenge with water, space and time, maybe getting a few good indoor specimens will help keep us nice and green.
Generally speaking, plants that do well indoors need good indirect light, well drained rich soil and believe it or not…a minimal watering programme.
I you have not had success in the past the reason was probably too much water.
Forgetting to water them can be a lifesaver!!
Certain flowering plants like Cymbidium orchids prefer to be outdoors but can be brought indoors during their flowering period.
