The sun is shining and summer is rolling in! If you haven't already, it's time to get out and start planting. Get in the spirit by celebrating National Gardening Week! Each year, garden clubs all over the nation dedicate the first full week of June to promoting community beautification, gardening, environmental education, and more. You don't have to be part of a club to join the party - we've got a few simple ways for you to exercise your green thumb in support of this fun week!

Start an Indoor Garden

If you think all gardening happens outside, guess again. Indoor gardening has become a massive trend, with people growing everything from small succulents and herbs to towering plants like fiddle leaf figs and monstera. If you have limited outdoor space or you live in an apartment, celebrate Gardening Week by starting a house plant garden! 

Start small with one of our adorable HousePlant containers, "punny" Garden Dirt ceramic planters, or colorful Art Pots. We have tons of items to help you create a gorgeous indoor garden that suits your personality and décor. If you're looking for a container for larger house plants, we've got you covered with gorgeous Art Planters in a variety of styles. 



Host a Container Gardening Party

Grab a few girlfriends and host a  planting party during National Gardening Week! Container gardens are an easy way to decorate your patio for summer, enhance your home's curb appeal, or dress up your deck. Just choose a set of coordinating Art Planters, pick up some greenery and florals from your local garden center, and make sure you have good soil. Sip some wine, get your gardening gloves dirty, and before you know it you and your friends will have eye-catching arrangements perfect for summer.

Improve Your Community

In the spirit of community, why not volunteer at a local shared garden to honor Gardening Week? Help improve your neighborhood by cultivating beautiful flowers or nutritious veggies. Is there a common area on your street that could use a little TLC? Maybe there's a vegetable garden that needs attention in a nearby underserved community. You could even plant an Art Pole to make a meaningful, impactful statement about what your community stands for. Many of our Art Poles have inspirational messages of peace, kindness, love, and more. You know what your neighborhood needs - get out there and get creative!

These are just a few of many wonderful ways to celebrate this special summer gardening kick off. Thanks for stopping by the blog - we hope you dive in and participate in National Gardening Week with us. Share how you'll be celebrating in the comments!
