Bringing Outdoor & Indoor Plants into the Home

As the summer temperatures begin to drop, and the days get shorter, autumn is the best time to bring your Outdoor & Indoor plant inside without causing it too much stress. These plants may be hardier than your typical houseplant, but that doesn’t stop them succumbing to frosts and must be transitioned into the home.

Plants provide an excellent habitat for many insects including those that may become harmful to it. At first, quarantine your plant away from others when it is bought inside, and inspect before deciding on pesticide use, or opt for eco-friendly solutions like oils or biological controls.

When watering, maintain moisture in the soil, especially near heat sources – an easy way to check this is with your finger: Insert and remove your finger from the soil; if you finger comes out coated, it generally indicates sufficient moisture. Avoid the temptation to repot directly into decorative, non-draining pots. Opt for containers with drainage holes to prevent overwatering and root rot. Consider placing the plant on a saucer to protect interior surfaces or keep it in its nursery pot within a larger decorative pot without holes and remove the plant for watering.

Winter sees a slowdown in growth and potential dormancy for your Outdoor & Indoor plant. If placed in a sunny, heated spot, it may still continue to grow. Monitor its growth; when it slows down, refrain from feeding. Yellowing leaves may indicate a need for an occasional, diluted, all-purpose liquid fertiliser, following the manufacturer’s instructions for proper application during this season.

Successfully Transition Your Outdoor & Indoor Plants to the Garden

Bringing your Outdoor & Indoor plants outside helps to mimic their natural habitats by providing:

  • Higher light levels, increasing photosynthesis and the creation of sugars, which aid the plant’s growth and disease resistance
  • Increased rainfall which benefits leaves by helping remove dust and other sediment build-up
  • Reduced risk of fungal infections by increasing humidity whilst maintaining airflow

The optimal time to relocate your plants outdoors varies with local climate —  typically in late spring when frost is unlikely, and temperatures consistently exceed 15°C. Transition them gradually, starting in shaded areas and progressing to brighter garden spots. Sheltered locations like the edge of a patio or under a pergola protect plants with large green foliage from direct sunlight.

During the growing season, monthly or even weekly liquid feeds can benefit your plants, following manufacturers’ instructions. For low-maintenance, incorporate slow-release feed granules into the surface of the soil, raking them in and watering thoroughly.

Urban living

Transferring Outdoor & Indoor plants when living in a flat with a balcony or small patio area is very easy to do, as these places tend to be more sheltered. The main thing to consider is the balcony or patio’s orientation for optimal growth — north-facing balconies offer slower growth but protect plants from scorching; east and west-facing balconies receive full sun only at part of the day; plants in south-facing balconies benefit from screens or placed in the shade of plants that can tolerate full sun.
