No Balcony

Ask me anything   greenthumbing indoors for gardeners without outdoor space

My Spearmint is finally coming up leafy and almost ready for replanting. It’s taken me months to find a perfect soiless seed starter: the bean sprouter. This thing is amazing. It will sprout anything I put it in. Large tree seeds like Delonix regia are no problem. Even little bitty Spearmint seeds (although they sometimes get drained into the next level). You can find a sprouter at the local nursery/hardware/healthfood store.

Moving day (again)

Nobalcony is moving house again. The upside is there will be a balcony, the downside is probably no internet for a few weeks.
But don’t worry! This blog is still committed to indoor gardening tech and tips. I’m planning a big “howto” post about getting started, to be posted soon.
