How to Garden Without a “Garden”

Not everyone has property that allows for a garden, some of us live in apartments or duplexes and have minimal space. But don’t give up if you still have that strong desire to produce your own tasty herbs and veggies from home! There are ways around it and we are going to show you!

Burlap Grow Bags

This biodegradable option is perfect for any patio as there are many shapes and sizes to choose from. Not only do these bags help you build a garden when you are lacking the space but they can also benefit your crops when you use them. Burlap grow bags promote a healthier root system, helps shed excess heat, and prevents over-watering.

Containers

Not only can containers be pleasing to the eye but they allow anyone to be able to garden! Even in the dead of winter these portable gardens can be taken inside to protect your plants from the frost. With containers you will tend to see a lot less weeds, pests, and diseases allowing for a healthier crop. Root tubers like carrots, radishes, potatoes and sweet potatoes thrive in container gardens and make harvesting them a breeze!

Hanging Baskets

Hanging baskets are always a good option if you do not have the room for containers or grow bags on your porch. Not only are they out of the way but they double as patio décor. Lettuce, tomatoes, strawberries, and herbs do really well in hanging baskets! Fun fact: Our favorite potting soil to use in hanging baskets is our Super Natural Potting Mix!

Garden Jars

For those who do not have a patio but still have an urge to grow something ̶ garden jars are for YOU! Garden jars allow you to grow herbs such as Basil, Parsley, Cilantro, Thyme, Rosemary, Chives, and many others with ease. If you have a clear jar you can actually see the roots grow ̶ great teaching moment for children! As well as a space saver, garden jars can be decorative. You can attach them to the wall, put them in your kitchen window sill, or hang them from the ceiling!
