Don’t have a lot of room to garden? Try these creative tips to grow more in a tiny space!
City gardeners and others with limited garden space are always faced with extra challenges when it comes to growing food. It can be hard to rein in your garden dreams and avoid the temptation to buy more plants than you have space for, but with a little creativity and determination, you likely can grow more than you think!
For example, in my years living in an apartment, I was able to grow a wonderful range of fruits and veggies in just a small 8′ x 12′ partially shaded corner. I rotated crops from year to year, but over my 8 years that I lived there, I grew everything from cabbages and lettuce to peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, cucumbers, herbs, strawberries, and garlic, along with various flowers. Not everything grew well, but I learned a lot along the way and got maximum enjoyment out of every season’s precious harvest!
This short video shares a number of helpful tips for growing a beautiful and productive garden in just a tiny amount of space. This one will be helpful for anyone with limited growing space and an ambitious green thumb like me! 🙂
