The first weeks in January can appear pretty drab, particularly after the holiday decorations have been put away. Indoor plants are a great way to decorate your house, bring the outdoors in and brighten your mood.
January is sale month, so look for bulbs, such as paper whites, that you can grow in small containers with a few stones. Many plant kits from the holidays are half price or even less.
Herbs in window boxes or clay pots not only brighten a kitchen but can also provide a fresh addition to soups, stews and other foods. Depending where you live, you may even want to consider starting some plants from seeds that can be transplanted as the days warm.
