Perfect Plants
By LJ and SLJ editors
As we head into winter, this is a great time to start an indoor gardening project. Having plants around your house or apartment has been shown to help improve indoor air quality, and can even increase your focus and concentration. They are also an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up your home décor. We offer ideas on getting started with an indoor planting project, large or small, in your home.
