In this article, we are going to outline the top 5 techniques that can help you grow your own food at home! We’ll break it down by technique, with a few notes on their best use.
This is probably the most common style of gardens in North America. They are easiest to set up and use the least amount of space. It’s perfect for balconies, decks or patios that aren’t big enough to plant larger items like fruit trees and vegetable gardens. You can also use a vertical garden to grow herbs and flowers.
This is the most popular form of gardening in North America and one of easiest. We recommend container gardening for those who have limited space or lack a yard to plant in or don’t want an eye sore in their front or backyard (or simply live in an apartment). Planting containers also works great for people with urban apartments and strict landlords as containers can be planted on balconies.
One of the best ways to get started with container gardening is to pick a container that is at least six inches larger than the root ball of the plant you want to grow. For example, if you want to grow corn, you’ll want a container at least eight inches wide. Make sure to choose a container that is well-draining, as waterlogged soil is death to roots. You can use any type of container for container gardening, but make sure it is at least six inches deep.
As you can see in the image above, container gardening is a great way to grow and harvest food in a small space. It’s perfect for balconies, decks or patios that aren’t big enough to plant larger items like fruit trees and vegetable gardens. A few popular container plants are tomato, cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant and lettuce.
To get started, you’ll need a pot for the plant (ceramic or wood), soil (coconut coir works best for moisture), seeds/seedlings (depending on what kind of material your planting) and some sort of drainage system if the pot does not have one in place.
Raised Bed Gardening
Raised bed gardens are becoming more and more popular in recent years and for good reason. They give you a lot of space to grow food in, especially vegetables and herbs. They are easy to set up too – all you need is some lumber or wood and some soil (coconut coir works best)
Raised beds can be used to grow multiple plants like tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, eggplant or lettuce. You can also grow fruits in raised beds if it has the right climate conditions! You’ll want to prepare your raised bed with the soil first before planting seeds/seedlings. You can either add good quality soil or compost.
Raised bed gardening is similar to container gardening in that you use any type of container for your plants, but with raised beds you can plant a variety of vegetables and flowers. Raised beds are great for landscaping because they are great for weed control and allow you to plant taller plants. They are also great for allowing water to run through the soil which helps keep your plants well-watered. They are also easy to build, which makes them a great option for those without a lot of time or patience.
There are various styles of raised beds, but the one I usually use is a wooden box that has 2×6 boards. The boxes are placed on top of each other and the height is adjusted to fit your needs. This style of bed allows you to plant bigger plants (tomatoes, basil, etc.), anything with a root system or simply to create more vertical space for taller plants.
While vertical gardens are always great for large spaces (like balconies), they’re also great in smaller spaces like apartments and home gardens.
Vertical gardens are a great option for those who don’t have a lot of space or are looking for a smaller space to garden in. They are perfect for patios, balconies and small yards. They are also an easy way to create a vertical garden for your home or apartment! The image above is a vertical garden I created on my balcony.
Vertical gardens are a great option for those who have limited space or don’t have a yard to plant in. Vertical gardens are basically a series of containers or tubes that are planted with a variety of herbs, vegetables and flowers. The plants are spaced out evenly throughout the containers or tubes and are irrigated with a watering system. The plants are harvested through the tubes or containers, which makes vertical gardening a lot easier than traditional gardening methods.
Vertical gardens are a great option for those who have a lot of space and want to plant a large variety of plants in a small area. They are perfect for balconies, rooftops and large patios. They are also great for small spaces because all you need is a wall or a fence to create a vertical garden! All you have to do is mount a support (I usually use PVC pipe) and then mount your pots/containers on top of the support.
