Planting your conservatory in winter

Conservatories and glass rooms can be a very versatile space which can be used all year round, so why not consider using yours to bring nature into your home by displaying plants?

Traditionally, the Victorians used their conservatories as an extension to their gardens, a place to nurture and grow plants, as well as show them off. This trend has since faded, but there are ways in which this can be done to make your home feel comfortable and at one with nature.

Glass Rooms tend to be considered too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter, but we have a few tips which can make your garden conservatory blossom even throughout the winter months.

In the winter, when your glass room is at its coldest, you will need to opt for hardier plants to survive. You may need to find ways to insulate your conservatory in these months, because most plants will need warmth to thrive, but nevertheless there are things you can grow which can add charm in the winter.

Introduce climber plants into your conservatory, they don’t take up too much space and can be relatively easy to look after. Choose brightly coloured climbers such as oranges and pinks to add a tropical feel during those cold, dark months.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Make use of all the space available in your conservatory. Place plants on window sills in pretty boxes to brighten up windows, place them on shelves and on tables too. Making the most of your space can create a talking point or a feature within the room, which can make the room feel more open and brighter all year round. Use colour to make your conservatory feel fresher and summery throughout the months.

If your conservatory is too hot, a good idea is to use succulent plants. Avoid using spiky ones though if you have small children around, instead why not opt for softer plants such as aloe vera.

Another quirky idea is to grow herbs in your conservatory. Use window boxes and planters to grow herbs such as thyme or parsley, which not only add a touch of nature to your room, can be used for cooking purposes. This makes your garden conservatory not just a talking point, but practical too.
