Organic Gardening Organic gardening is essentially the practice of gardening without chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The spirit of organic gardening is more about being tuned into your patch of soil: what plants will thrive, what environment will help your soil be more productive. Composting, water supply, insects and other wildlife are also components of organic gardening. Share your experiences with Organic Gardening, and get tips and advice on how to get started!

You can grow plants inside home also. However light is necessary if not direct sunlight. You can place your plant pots in window. Or may be you can also set a hydroponic or aquaponic garden. readymade kits and plant nutrients are available for those. Choose hermaphrodite plants which are self polinating like peppers or you can grow herbs like parley, basil and cilantro.

Planting a Home Garden Guide - Gardening Tips and Advice

This article discusses planting a home garden guide - gardening tips and advice. Here is a list of gardening tips for your home garden:
• Cut mowing time. A 36-inch mower does the job in half the time it takes an 18-inch one.
• Fertilizer from your fireplace: Wood ashes make an excellent soil conditioner and natural fertilizer for delphiniums, lilacs, peonies, and roses.
• A hemlock hedge is unrivaled as a natural, graceful means of protecting your privacy. Advantages: The hedge is disease-free, requires no fertilizer, and holds up well through snow, extreme temperatures, or drought. To start a hedge: Plant four-year-old seedlings about two feet apart. Once the desired height and fullness are reached, cut back annually on the year's growth. Best: A hedge about six feet high.
• Miniature roses flourish indoors and bloom every six to eight weeks throughout fall and winter. Potted rosebushes grow to 12 inches high with one-inch blossoms. They need at least four hours of sunlight a day or 12 hours of fluorescent light. Bushes should be moved outside and planted (in their pots) for at least two months every spring, summer, or early fall.
• Repotting a houseplant. Moisten the soil well. Wait an hour. Then up-end the pot and rap it on something hard. The dirt ball should drop out, intact. Before transplanting it in a bigger pot, cover the drainage hole with plastic mosquito netting. Reason: It stops soil run-off, but doesn't take up space as pebbles do.
• Geraniums in winter. Keep the pot on a sunny windowsill and the flowers will continue blooming throughout the winter. Southern exposure is best, with at least three hours of direct sun daily. Care: Between watering, the soil should be permitted to dry out. The plant should also be misted every few days. A standard houseplant fertilizer should be added to the soil about once a month. To encourage growth, snip straggly stems and blossoms that fade. For consistent foliage, rotate the pot.

you should try LED grow lights for indoor gardening.These lights produce less heat and also energy efficient.

This is an especially important feature for indoor gardeners, because plants respond differently to different color temperatures. so you should try LED lights they are energy efficient and produce less light.
