Nathan shows you how to turn some cheap store containers into an edible garden. This type of gardening method will help you grow almost anywhere that there is a small amount of space and some sunlight including on your patio, verandah or even on an apartment window sill.
It all begins with a good soil mixture. Learn how to garden affordably with easily available materials from your local home centre. Watch the video from The Edible Home for more info:
Plant your vegetable container gardens at the same time you would plant in the garden. Depending on what types of vegetable you want to grow, you can start seeds in your containers or purchase transplants from a garden center.
Most vegetables require at least six hours of sunlight per day. Salad greens and herbs can usually get by with less. Tomatoes, peppers, beans and other sun-lovers will appreciate as much sun as they can get. The only requirements are light, water, fertilizer, good soil, and attention.
