How to Create a Terrarium and Flower Garden for Your Home

Plants contribute to the overall appeal of a house. Flowering plants bring a splash of color to any dull space which can attract butterflies and beautify a garden. Miniature plants fit for terrariums make an interesting conversational piece when placed indoors.

Plants are more than just decorative items in the garden and the house. They relax the mind and ease tiredness because of the calming property of their green color. Indoor plants also serve as natural air purifiers. They reduce indoor air pollution caused by volatile organic compounds (VOC), carbon dioxide, and airborne microbes.

Outdoors spaces that provide shade are a perfect spot during the summer season. Instead of the usual green foliages planted in these spaces, flowering and crawling plants can make them more inviting. Flowering plants can spruce up an otherwise all-green area and provide a relaxing hideaway in summer.

The shaded part of the garden covered by trees or high walls usually has a trail of green plants around it. To put color to this part, add flowering plants like begonias and fuchsia. Colorful flowering plants help balance the sun's temperature to make it cooler. Mix hydrangeas, summersweet, kerria, alpine currant, evergreen azalea, and honeysuckle to create a spring ensemble. Aside from these, you can also have a combination of bigleaf hydrangea, impatiens, hydrangea, forest grass, fuchsia, and calibrachoa to provide a lively shaded space in the garden.

Walking through a garden filled with color and fluttering butterflies is an enchanting experience everyone dreams of. To have a garden of flowers that attract butterflies, mix colorful, fragrant and nectar-filled flowers together. You can plant perennial flowers like lavender, sage, coneflower, goldenrod, bee balm, violet, and sedge. These plants will naturally attract butterflies and make them stay in your garden.

Plant enthusiasts are not limited to outdoor gardening. You can also opt for terrariums which are excellent indoor plants, usually in a glass container that can serve as décor or accent piece. Terrariums are enclosed miniature gardens that can have themes like a mini desert or small forest. These miniature gardens are low-maintenance and can be easily moved in any part of the house.
