Gardening is the activity or act of cultivating and tending a garden. People living in urban cities don't have to lose out on gardening. Having the right knowledge and adequate planning will help you create a garden even with a little space. Here are ways to minimize your small space for gardening:
1. Use containers
People staying in cities hardly have space for a proper garden. As such, it would be better if you consider growing plants in hanging baskets and containers. You can place the pots on your balcony, patio, or porch.
2. Grow an herb garden
An herb garden is an ideal option to incorporate into your small balcony space. It can serve as a food source and also beautify your home. Some of the plants to grow are rosemary, sage, thyme, and basil.
3. Try out vertical gardening
Utilize your small space properly by incorporating vertical gardening to create a breathtaking garden. Use vertical wall planters, stack planters, and railing planters to create a beautiful garden.
4. Choose the right plants
Select the plants to grow and aim for resilient ones that don't require too much maintenance. Also, don't grow plants like pumpkin, which overtake gardens and compete for space. Consider growing plants like beans, tomatoes, and pepper.
5. Use self-watering containers
Make sure to use self-watering containers by filling the attached reservoir to allow the plants to absorb moisture when necessary.
