Use Your Limited Space

At a time when food prices continue to rise and city-dwellers look for increased contact with nature, the guide lets you make the most of small areas like balconies or patios.

A recent study published in the Journal of Urban Forestry & Urban Greening shows that there is a growing demand for urban gardening across the United States, as people seek more sustainability and access to healthy, nutritious foods.

“Imagine stepping outside onto your balcony and being greeted by a lush array of greenery, herbs, and even some ripe, juicy tomatoes ready for picking. That’s the magic of balcony gardening,” says a spokesperson. “With our essential tips and tricks, you can grow your own food and beautify your urban dwelling!”

Assess Sunlight & Shade

With step-by-step instructions for each aspect of the garden design process, the guide covers important planning elements, such as assessing balcony sunlight and space, choosing the right plants, and selecting appropriate containers.

You'll also learn how to apply vertical gardening techniques that help to maximize available space and allow for additional plants to be grown. The guide discusses how to monitor and adjust gardens for optimal light exposure throughout the day and according to seasonal shifts.

Learn Composting Techniques

Differences between soil mixes are explained, as well as composting tips - including information about Bokashi bins and worm farms. The guide also contains detailed information on how you can set up watering schedules, how to apply different irrigation techniques, and advice on selecting appropriate fertilizers that help to keep your plants healthy and blooming.

Finally, you can learn how to protect your balcony garden from natural pests - like aphids and spider mites - with a focus on using natural, organic methods of pest control, such as neem oil, different types of organic insecticidal soap, or even the addition of beneficial insects such as lacewings or ladybugs.
