No matter what time of year it is, there are times when we want to bring the beauty and gifts from the garden indoors. Whether it’s to keep your “green thumb” warm during the winter months, because you live in a space with no outdoor gardening spot, or just because you love to have plants indoors as well as out, here are some easy indoor gardening projects to keep you busy when you aren’t outdoors!

      You possibly need another plant so it can cross pollinate. Also at Lowes, or your local plant nursery will have fruit tree fertilizers and follow the guidelines of that. After 2 years of having a passion fruit, I’m finally getting fruit!! Hope this helps!

    I started some Lemon trees from seed a few years ago. The trees themselves have grown pretty tall, but have yet to produce any flowers or lemons. I live in upstate NY and keep my plants inside during the fall, winter and beginning of spring. What can I do to help my plants produce friut?

      The number one thing they need is to get more sun… Are they in a very bright area, like a sun room, especially in early spring?
