Hence, it’s important to keep trying different things. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or just starting with some recently ordered seeds, these seven gardening trends for 2024 are designed to elevate your gardening experience. From embracing portable gardening to saying yes to flowers, let's explore the trends that will make your garden flourish in the coming year.
Embrace Portable Gardening with Pots:
Say goodbye to space constraints and embrace the freedom of portable gardening with pots. Not all of us have a sprawling backyard to garden and that’s where some pots will come into play. Whether you have a balcony, terrace, or just a windowsill, pots offer versatility and convenience. Experiment with various sizes and materials to create a dynamic and movable garden space.
The planter material, size and drainage are key while selecting pots for your space. Know more about what pots will suit your space with our quick guide on pros and cons of planters.
Use Kitchen Waste to Fertilize:
Turning kitchen waste into compost not only helps the environment, but also gives you the sought-after black gold in the form of compost. Start composting your kitchen scraps to create nutrient-rich compost for your plants. This eco-friendly approach not only reduces waste but also enriches your soil, creating a healthier environment for your plants to thrive.
Composting is easier than you think. Check out this quick guide to know more about composting.
Salads Beyond Lettuce:
Salads are more than just lettuce. Go beyond traditional lettuce and cultivate an array of leafy greens like kale, arugula, cherry tomato, baby leaves, and herbs. Mix and match textures and flavors to create nutrient-packed, vibrant salads right from your garden to your plate.

Build a Mini Greenhouse:
Extend your growing season and protect delicate plants by building a mini greenhouse also known as a cold-frame. Whether it's a small hoop house or a compact structure on your balcony, a mini greenhouse provides a controlled environment for your plants to flourish, even in unpredictable weather conditions.
Here’s all you need to know about greenhouse gardening for beginners.
Water with Bottom Watering:
Revolutionize your watering routine by adopting the bottom watering method. Instead of watering from the top, allow your plants to absorb water from the bottom. This encourages strong root development and helps prevent common issues like mold and fungus. Bottom watering is particularly effective for seedlings and young plants.

Grow Plenty of Plants, but Start Small:
While the desire to grow a diverse garden is understandable, it's crucial to start small, especially if you're a beginner. Begin with a handful of plants that match your skill level and gradually expand. This approach ensures that you can provide proper care and attention to each plant, setting the foundation for a successful gardening journey.
The best way to start would be to grow a small microgreen garden right next to your kitchen windowsill. Order the complete kit for growing microgreens at home from seeds to get started.
Say Yes to Flowers:
Make your garden a visual delight by saying yes to flowers. Beyond their aesthetic appeal, flowers attract pollinators, promote biodiversity, and add a touch of fragrance to your outdoor space. Choose flowers that are well-suited to your climate and gardening conditions for a blooming spectacle.
