A couple of years ago, around the same time, I was really becoming inpatient for spring. That's when I decided to create a tabletop garden and it's easy enough to do.
Find a large basket, bowl or other container and visit a florist or your grocery store for plants. There are lots available right now such as tulips, crocuses and miniature daffodils in 4 inch pots and don't forget a houseplant or two for colour and texture.
You can line your basket with plastic, fill it with a good quality potting soil and plant right into it or as I have done here, lined it with plastic and just set the small pots on top. A finishing touch would be to add some sheet or reindeer moss to cover the tops of the pots.
As one flowering bulb finishes, it can be replaced with another or a totally different plant.
The houseplants in my basket are a rex begonia and purple oxalis. Putting together an indoor spring garden is certain to help chase the winter blues away.
