How to Get in on the Getaway Garden Trend (Even If You Don’t Have a Yard)

Just like sourdough starting and dying, it seemed like everyone got into gardening at the start of the pandemic. And like those trends, once the vaccinations were in place and things opened up, people thought it would wear off. But the opposite has happened.
"These early container gardens and vegetable gardens gave people the confidence to think about larger, more decorative gardens," says Erin Schanen, the blogger behind The Impatient Gardener.
She's not the only one noticing increased interest. As the weather warms up, Google searches for “gardening” are picking up, and a recent DIYs.com study of Pinterest pins found some new gardening trends are emerging: staycation gardens, social space gardens, and rustic retreat gardens. They all seem to serve a similar purpose - an escape from the chaos of everyday life (and the same four walls you've been staring at all year). So we came up with a collective term that encompasses them all: escape gardens. They're a backyard sanctuary, whether you want to spend the afternoon in a shady spot with a good book ... or just need five minutes without your kids pulling your sleeve and saying, "Hey mom, hey mom, hey maaaahm! " Call. And the good news is, you don't need a palatial estate to create one. We will prove it.

How To Create An Escape Garden If You Only ...
1. A window sill
When you have a south-facing window, you have a great spot for plants that need lots of light. (And if you don't, you can always invest in a grow light.) In this corner, creating a transporting ambience is key: consider a tiered plant stand or add a hanging planter and put some on the sill. An ottoman or ottoman will give you a nice place to contain everything.
Plants to consider:
Pothos (low maintenance)
Begonias (to bring color)
English ivy (makes for a large hanging plant)
Complete the look:
Tiered Plant Stand ($ 108)
Hanging Planter ($ 30)
Jute stool ($ 60)
2. A small terrace or balcony
Use a mix of traditional planters and plant stands to create a feeling of opulence (and privacy). Then add in some fairy lights and a small bistro set and you have a quick getaway right away. If you want to make things even easier - especially if you love the idea of ​​a garden but aren't sure where to start - get one of Bloomscape's Bloom Kits. You choose how many plants you want, whether you need soil and which planters you want, and the whole thing is delivered to your door.
Plants to consider:
Sweet alyssum (for a bouquet of flowers)
Torenia (ideal for shady spots)
Monstera (thrives in bright, indirect light)
Complete the look:
3 Tier Plant Stand ($ 40)
Acacia Wicker Bistro Set ($ 176)
Outdoor fairy lights ($ 31)
3. A medium sized yard
A garden this size is ideal for leaning into the Staycation Garden trend. Choose a spot near a tree, if you can, to take advantage of its shade. Add a couple of solar-powered hanging lanterns and a small bench (or a table and chairs *), then surround the area with drought-resistant plants and perennials, which gardeningknowhow.com says tend to be lower-maintenance.
