Since I live in a small apartment, what could I do about a garden now? What about "small" gardening? I've featured a few of my favorite small gardening options below:
1. Vertical Garden
Try re-using an old shoe-holder as a vertical garden. Instructions can be found here.
2. Herb Garden
|Lazy Liz on Less|
Scared of trying to grow vegetables? Start off with a small herb garden.
3. Pallet Garden
|Life on the Balcony|
This is my favorite small-space garden option, by far! Now that it is nice outside I've been itching for a balcony or patio to relax on. A full tutorial on how to make a pallet garden can be found here.
4. Mason Jar Garden
|Not Just a Housewife|
Another use for a mason jar! Get full instructions here. A tip on finding mason jars: check out estate sales. I recently scored a few at one in my neighborhood.
5. Compact Vegetable Garden
Great option for a small backyard. I can see this being a good beginner's garden - looks easy enough! Instructions here.
