Indoor Gardening: An Easy Spring Update

April 13, 2015

Remodelista editor in chief Julie Carlson decided to help jump-start spring. Armed with a set of outdoor flower arrangements from The Home Depot, she transformed a corner of her living room into an affordable vernal oasis in a matter of minutes.

Above: Julie planted a second arrangement in a 12-Inch Stoneware Imperial Blue Pickle Pot made of frost-resistant stoneware with a cobalt glaze; $19.98 at The Home Depot. (For a more whimsical look, consider a Ceramic White Owl Planter or Ceramic Damascus Carved-Stone Planter; $19.98 and $39.98, respectively.)

Above: Julie’s flowers are ultimately destined for outside–the blooms will last indoors for about three to six days before needing to be pinched back and put in full sun to set more buds. They’ll eventually fill a planter or hanging basket, but for now, Julie is happy to have some spring color inside.
