If you are suffering from COVID cabin fever, post-holiday let down, or the effects of short hours of daylight, let us recommend a mood-lifter: houseplants. Bringing green and growing plants into your home can make you feel better, physically and psychologically. Plants can also be used to get creative and have fun. Here are suggestions from the Hyannis Country Garden greenhouse that can lift your spirits this month.
If you wonder about which plants to choose, ask our greenhouse staff for recommendations based on the amount of light you have and your level of experience with houseplants.
Know that a miniature garden or other creative, living arrangement can be taken apart and replanted in different containers later in the spring. You can repurpose your indoor plants as components in your outdoor window boxes and pots, or step them up into larger, individual pots as they grow.
Remember that indoor plants are similar to those in your yards and gardens; some last for years and years, but others only live for a short period. If one of your houseplants dies, it’s not a tragedy…it’s an opportunity to try something new!
