LG has launched a genius new indoor garden system, the tiiun, that will give even the greenest of gardeners a chance to grow their own fruits and vegetables, no matter the season or whether it be rain or shine.

If there's anything that's bound to unite many when the sun is out and the birds are chirping, it's got to be gardening. Now, while we may be smack bang in the middle of a (very rogue) September heatwave, it won't be long until we're amassed with the reality of colder months ahead of us, potentially bringing our many garden ideas to a halt.

However, LG has now made it possible to grow your own all year round even if you don't have the luxury of a vegetable plot, a greenhouse, or are perhaps just scarce for space on your windowsill herb garden.

LG's indoor garden, the tiiun

The LG tiiun (which means 'to sprout' in Korean) is a new smart home trend which allows you to be a proud parent of your own self-contained mini garden inside the comfort of your own home.

In fact, there was a past iteration of the LG tiiun, which almost resembled a mini fridge and was a lot larger in size. However, this newer model which was showcased during IFA 2023 is even more compact and perfect for bringing a small garden idea (without the garden) to life.

Our Ecommerce Editor, Molly Cleary, who attended IFA 2023 comments on the indoor garden system saying, 'I was invited to take a look at LG's latest innovations at IFA 2023 and something that caught my eye immediately was the indoor planters.'

'We've been writing a lot of plant content this year on Ideal Home, and I thought that these planters were such a clever way to keep plants thriving even in winter, or if you live in a city and don't have access to a garden. I love the design and think they look so futuristic just like the rest of the LG product line.'

Because of its small, portable size, we reckon you could place it on any open windowsill, shelf, or even a coffee table and nobody else except you would be none the wiser that you're actually planting a small garden.

While we don't have much information on this newer, compact model just yet, if it's anything like its predecessor, then we can expect the indoor garden to link to an app that will automate the plant cultivation process and create the optimum temperature and conditions to ensure your plant babies thrive.

If you ask us, it's a foolproof, easy garden idea that even the greenest of gardeners (talking to myself here) can't mess up on.

Additionally, if we've intrigued you with this new garden technology and are already interested in beginning your own smart indoor garden journey, we've rounded up a couple of alternatives you can shop now for your own green-thumbed leisure that also sports that similar, compact look.

All this smart garden talk has got us excited for what's next when you marry nature and technology. It's an unlikely pairing that somehow just makes sense.

Well, what's important to us is that we can grow our favourite plants even if they're off-season, so that's a win in our books any day.
