Gardening expert James Wong (aka @BotanyGeek) has revealed a simple DIY water feature he created for indoors, using a simple Ikea table.

The gardening expert revealed a circular table filled with water which trickles down mossy rocks and plants to create a stunning indoor display.

To create the feature, James chose an affordable coffee table from Ikea and cleverly used the shallow basin-style table top as the base for his water fountain.

The raised edges allow the water to be contained, while the powder-coated steel construction ensures the water won’t leak or seep through anywhere.

The same table can be purchased online from Ikea for £35 and is called ‘YPPERLIG’.

Alongside the post, James explained that, “connecting with nature is vital for our wellbeing & it’s easier than you think to get a daily dose of Vitamin G,” referring to the ‘G’ in green.

But don’t worry if you don’t have your own outside space, as he explains his “favourite thing about gardening is you don’t need a garden to do it, like in this simple indoor fountain [he] made.”

The expert shared the post in honour of National Gardening Week (Monday 26 May to Sunday 2 May), which is currently taking place.

He also provided a link to the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) website which is encouraging the nation to get outdoors and provides resources, ideas and information to help and inspire activities.
