Ready, Set … Spring! Three Ways to Invite Spring to Start Early

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwired - January 12, 2016) - It's never too soon to start Spring! Even in the dead of winter you can create a green oasis indoors. For instance, start small with a miniature, tabletop garden.

Terrariums are making a comeback and garden writer Ann Whitman says terrariums, "invite you in for a closer look and provide a perfect escape from the winter weather outside." She adds, "terrariums are easy to care for and don't require any special skills for success."

Gardener's Supply Company offers everything you need to get started. First, make your project foolproof by following easy, online instructions or start with a DIY Terrarium Kit. Second, select your vessel: the latest terrariums are substantial and angular with beveled glass, trimmed with copper-colored metal (unlike copper, the metal won't turn green). Next, select your plants -- Gardeners' Supply Company offers four collections of plants specifically suited for terrariums as well as a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. Whitman adds that, "terrariums don't require much more than occasional watering and trimming."

If you're ready to jump start your outdoor garden, try starting seeds indoors with use of a sunny windowsill or light system. Gardener's Supply Company's affordable Stack-n-Grow light system now delivers 58-percent more light to your plants. And our popular GrowEase seed starting success kit is now available with organic soil -- and includes two grow trays, Organic Seed Starting Mix and wooden markers. The trays are made from recycled plastic and are dishwasher safe and reusable for years to come.

If you don't have a green thumb, you can always bring the scents of spring and summer indoors with the use of essential oils. Breathing in the pure, botanical aroma of lavender, eucalyptus, orange, peppermint or rosemary can produce feelings of relaxation, excitement, calm, energy or clarity -- among other emotions. Essential oils are the pure, extracted essence of plants, unadulterated by chemicals or other ingredients. Winter may be the best time to stimulate your senses with natural botanicals.
