Five fun and simple ideas for a greener spring (and you don’t need a garden).
Arrange a garden of cuttings with the help of a coat stand. With hanging clear vases – or RIMFORSA tube-shaped glasses – it may well pass for a piece of art. Even better, you can follow the progress of your baby plants in fascinating detail.
If you have limited space, use a shelving unit and stack your plants high. If you have trouble choosing what to grow – pick a theme! Like tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic and coriander. Voila! Your very own vertical salsa garden.
Make it super simple – let your miniature garden grow from the bag you brought it home in. Create a hanging planter using our sturdy, waterproof FRAKTA carrier bag. (Beware of leaking imitations.)
Share the magic of seeing a plant sprout from a seed. Arrange a decorative plant nursery for the whole family by laying damp cotton balls and seeds of your choice – bean, pea or kernel – in taped-up plastic bags (made from renewable material).
Growing plants may not be for everyone. But even then, we have a flower that’s guaranteed to thrive.
We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
