Most full-time RV enthusiasts agree — the sacrifices made to live a life of adventure and exploration are certainly worth it. And while there’s no denying that you can’t take everything with you on the road, you may not have to leave as much of your garden behind as you thought. April is Lawn and Garden Month, so it’s time to pack up your garden and bring it in on the road with you.
Plant a Container Garden
While you may not be able to take your entire garden with you on your travels, you can take individual sections of it in smaller container gardens. A container herb garden above your RV’s sink — with easy-to-grow herbs like oregano, mint, basil and rosemary — can add tons of flavor to your RV cooking.
Window boxes specifically designed for RV windows and portable planters for your RV’s bumper are also available for RV enthusiasts who stay in one location for a longer amount of time.
Over-the-Door Hanging Planter
You may already know that over-the-door shoe holders can be a great place to store more than just shoes in your RV, but you may not have considered them for plants. Believe it or not, your over-the-door shoe holders are the perfect place to grow small plants. When you park at a campsite, hang the shoe holder from your RV’s awning to give your plants a little more light.
Travel With House Plants
House plants aren’t just for brick-and-mortar homes anymore — they’re a great addition to your RV’s interior decor as well. Most plants (if not too large) currently living in your brick-and-mortar home can be brought on the road as well. But when you’re traveling from campsite to campsite, be sure you place your house plants in a bathtub or secure container, so they don’t spill on your RV’s floor.
