Where can I garden? No doubt the first question is WHERE?

If you are willing to grow anything start thinking your options. Many of us don’t have even a tiny little piece of outdoor space, but maybe you are a lucky one. If you are not, some lateral thinking is certainly necessary.

There are all kind of places to garden. But I’m sorry to say that if you live in a north facing apartment with no window ledges, you’ll have to  borrow space elsewhere. Nature has limits. In case you have big windows and plenty of light, you can garden indoors, or you’ll have to look for something else (allotments, shared plots, friends garden…)

Alys Fowler. Garden Anywhere

But the truth is there are options, and many. Starting from community gardens, community rooftops (most of them tragically abandoned in the cities), porches, tiny front gardens, balconies, windowsills. They all can be put to grow stuff, from veggies, to pretty flowers.

 

The best way to start, and to enjoy gardening when we have no clue, is to grow in containers. Conditions are controlled, and while you remember to give them light and water your plants are really bound to succeed.

 

Easy, even just a few cans seeded with herbs, or flowers in your balcony, will create a statement; or a bunch of bulbs planted in a pot will show off as soon as they bloom -and that is a BIG statement-. Just contain the soil! no matter what you use. From then on you can start slowly with bigger projects.

 

I’m sure you’ll soon find that gardening drags you in quickly. If you care a little and then see things growing you’ll become truly proud of yourself. And one pot will soon become two, three…, and plants will end up all over your place.

 

Let’s go to the basics, a few things need to be asses before you start.

Subscribing to my Newsletter means opening a door to a new way of looking at the landscape. This is a Blog about design, and about R+D of my own patio/garden & design projects research. 
I write to bring people back to the garden, back to the landscape and to broaden our knowledge on what it is and what it means. Culturally landscape has always being around, that past is not that far behind.
