24 Days of Giveaways - Day 15 The Art of Balcony Growing

Container Garden

One trend that certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed during this pandemic is the number of people who are growing in non-traditional spaces. And by that I mean, for those who don’t have garden space, many have turned to containers and balcony growing. And who can blame you!  It really doesn’t take that much room to grow a few favourites, for snacks or salads.  

It’s totally doable. The first step in planting a garden on your patio or balcony is to arrange a container or two on your balcony and fill it with soil. Be sure to put a few holes in the bottom of the box for drainage of excess water and something under the container to catch that water. If you don’t have room for a large container, you can grow many things in smaller pots. Once you have completed these steps, you are ready to start planting.

Commonly grown items for small pots and containers are herbs.  With the likes of Mint, Rosemary, Cilantro, Parsley, Basil and Tarragon leading the way.  Based mostly on size and their ability to perform so well in containers. But you don’t have to stop at just herbs.  Most balconies that have some sun would do very well with veggies like Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Peppers, Zucchini, Celery, and of course lots of leafy greens.  Imagine just having to step outside of your apartment to grab all the ingredients you need for a fresh salad?
