A balcony garden is great if you live in the city & you still want to grow fresh food
If you have enough sun exposure then you could grow a productive little balcony garden! Today I wanted to share some crops that are great for urban container gardening. They also happen to have great dollar value which means that even with a small space, you can dent your grocery spending a little. I’ll also show you an example of a balcony garden design plan.
TIP: When purchasing seeds many seed catalogs now mention which varieties are best suited for container gardening.
