while the window sill garden is blooming with happiness this Summer, as it faces north, we do not have much of sunlight here. And guess who is happy! well most of the plants seem happy with the indirect light. We have a entry way passage garden where there was too much of environmental pollution, so just Snake plant and Chinese Bamboo plants are growing well outside out entrance.

 Two window sill , window gardens, loads of plants, packed tightly, of course, me, the obsessive gardener!

 Sharing practical tips for adding some Pizzazz  to a window sill garden-
1) check the sunlight, choose plants appropriately. If low sunlight, then it is difficult  to grow flowering plants and bulbs. More direct sunlight for even a few hours, bravo, grow roses and just about every plant! but we are lucky, low sunlight, means more ornamental foliage colours and plants that are indoor loving types. Ferns, Rubber, palm, Jade, succulents, cactus's, aloe vera, ribbon grass, purple hearts, and so many options available. I am going to try out roses, so brought a yellow rose plant and it seems fine.
its a blessing to have nature into your home, make the best of it!

2) space is limited. and also height of the window is limited. Choose plants that will be visible while you sit on the sofa or chair. What I did earlier, all plants were lined up, but nothing visible for us , we had to go near the window to see our garden! so have a mixture of height plants. stands, and plant holders are great, we get good stylish ones of wrought iron. they add style to your window garden. Add some glam quotient ,choose great containers and coloured foliage plants. I did make over of many pots by coloring them, adding some glam with different techniques, recycling old garden containers. Add some Pizzazz!
3) Beauty for you and for others too! we added a granite stone stopper, to stop water from flowing outside wall of our home. The stopper of a few inches height, see that the containers fall below so that you do not splash muddy water out. Now my plants are happy, I have no fear of messing the outside wall colour with muddy stains! arranged them well according to their size and sunlight requirements.  Spray water regularly on the leaves so that they are fresh and happy! watering is a careful task, that each one learns according to how the plants communicate about their thirst levels.
