Home Gardening, City Style
If your home is in an urban area, you most likely do not have a plot of land to plant a garden. Don't let that stop you! City gardens range from a flower pot on the windowsill to full-room conservatories and everything in between. Some areas allow rooftop gardening as an option for their residents. And others may provide a community space for gardening that any resident may use.
On your balcony you can grow nearly any herb, flower, vegetable and most fruits in compact form. For a larger balcony, large planter pots and troughs are a great option, while a smaller space may utilize flowerpots and windowsill boxes best. Your plant choices should coincide with the amount of available sunlight and general climate, just like a traditional garden bed.
With any of these options, a garden will add beauty, value and serenity to any space. Wise plant choices based on climate and available sunlight for color, scent and produce will enhance the lives of those who care for it, and you just can't top a fresh bouquet, salad or sauce made from your own garden.
Happy city gardening!
