Hello From Pot Garden Lover!

Post  ilovethelawn on 5/28/2014, 12:35 pm

Hey guys. Very new here. I garden using small pots as I live in an apartment and doesn't have my own yard. Isn't that bad, as I still could plant different plants in different pots. For now, I'm just planting herbs. In the near future I'm aiming to try out growing fruit plants in pots. Would appreciate for any suggestions and tips that I get to receive from anyone here. Cheers! Very Happy

Hi Ilovethelawn.  Welcome!

As part of my small space garden, I am planning on herbs in stacked buckets like this:

This particular garden used both soda bottles and square buckets for all sorts of garden goodies.

I will also be using Mel's Mix since it works so well!

What kind of space do you have? Do you have a balcony? Are you only able to grow on a windowsill?
