You don’t need a big garden to grow your own edible crops. A windowsill, balcony or rooftop terrace - no matter the size of your garden, it’s easy to grow your favourite crops in pots if you have a sunny spot. And when you combine growing in pots with vertical gardening, you can maximise your space and your harvest, turning a bare wall into a cascade of fresh vegetables.
Growing crops in pots keeps your harvest close at hand for maximum freshness - potted herbs deserve pride of place near the kitchen for convenience.
Container gardening does need more attention from you than growing vegies and herbs in a standard garden plot, but the reward for effort is well worthwhile. So let’s get planting!
