If you love the company of plants (then again who does not), you have certainly tried incorporating a garden in your home. When considering a garden, people usually have the picture of a vast yard in mind, Downton Abbey-like (alright, maybe a bit smaller than that), with all the varieties of plants and the space fit for garden tea parties. Since most people live in apartments, (considering the fast growing pace of cityscapes), not everyone has the possibility for such a garden. This is not to be deemed as a cause for disappointment, however, because any size might do for you to get surrounded by plants.
Just imagine your balcony, rooftop, living room and kitchen decorated with the charm of planters or and even window boxes. You can amp up the style of your home and turn it into a stress-free zone with beautiful greenery, choosing from the endless flower choices, such as violets, anthurium, hibiscus, geranium, jasmine, succulents, including vegetables. When growing your own vegetables, you have the chance to become more eco aware and start doing your own compost, drop the use of chemical fertilisers and get organic food on your daily menu. With so many plants and herbs available, you have to pay attention to the kind of planter you choose. When it comes to indoor plants, there are two types of planters discussed below, so you will be able to compare and make your pick.
