My balcony has an odd shape, and I’ve found it difficult to get planter boxes that utilize the space well. I’ve tried many different variations of smaller boxes but was never really happy with them.
One of the simplest plants to grow are the herbs. You can easily grow these both in pots on your balcony and in your garden outdoors. Herbs seems to thrive without much care at all. They don’t need a lot of water, and they prefer soil that’s rather poor. And – the more you harvest the more they grow!
Most of us use herbs to flavour our food. But did you know that most herbs also have a carminative effect? So not only do they make the food taste great, they also improve your digestion!
Even if you don’t have a large space to make for instance a kitchen garden, there is still a lot you can grow on a small space. If you have a balcony, a veranda, a porch or some small available space, you can grow some of your vegetables yourself. You just have to be a little inventive and make good use of the space you have.
