DIY Graft Tips: An Awesome Gifting Idea

Are you one of those who had always wished to have a beautiful interior gardening at your home?

Do you like the idea of nurturing indoor herbs,  a sill sanctuary filled up with beautiful blooms and blossoms,  or maintaining a  simple resting place for healthy-looking  vegetables, then here’s one simple craft for you to do.

It can be simply be done by anybody who likes to make their home a joyful place to dwell in or even makes up for a good gift to your loved ones.

The things that are required for this craft are:  a drill machine, a window box containing drainage- this can be made at home or bought ready-made from the local stores,  drainage rack, sand-paper, garden- rich fertilizers or compost, and soil, then your most-favorite seasonal flowers that you would like to plant, white and colored polymer or acrylic paints, an overcoat of transparent  gloss to retain the colors, and a painting brush of about 2 inches in length and gum turpentine.

Now keeping your required things ready, here’s the method for it:

First use the sand-paper to rub all over the exterior  of the window box to make its hard and coarse sides to become smooth. Then apply two coatings of white paint to give it a smooth and shiny appearance.  But remember to allow the paint to dry fully, in between the two coats.

Now the next step after it gets dried out completely is to paint in colored designs that you fancy, like  hearts, leaves, lattice and stripes or whatever you like to. Now allow the  colored paint to fully dry after which an overcoat of the transparent gloss should be applied. Then leave it to dry through the night.

Use the drilling machine to make some holes in a spot somewhere near the window and then take the painted window box and fix it in that  spot. The next thing to do is laying the drainage tray at the bottom along with  pebbles and stones of about one inch thickness. Lastly, mask and cover them up using the mixture of soil and fertilizer. Now  finally, sprinkle the plant seeds on them. This is all you need to do to create a wonderful lawn at your home.

You can choose from a variety of plants to choose from to grow indoors. The plants that grow well in small areas are Lavender and Geranium as well as chives, mint and sage too.

So its upto you to choose whatever herbs you want to plant but the important thing to bear in mind is to routinely water your plants and treat them with sufficient composts and fertilizers  to prevent it from dying.

It’s a great idea to raise many plants of various varities at a time. So to do this, you have to sow the seeds that grow as tallest plant at the back while the ones that grow into  small bushes can be sown in the middle and similarly in the front direction of the window box for that fantastic look that seems to be pleasing when people look from the outside of the house.
