Best DIY Advice

“Gardening for your zone is incredibly important, but that shouldn’t stop you from experimenting. Many tender and unusual plants can survive the winter inside your home. As long as you have bright light (it doesn’t need to be direct sunlight) and a humidifier to combat winter dryness, you can cultivate nearly anything.”
