Tips for your home garden in apartment
The home garden can be made either by those who have more space and a yard, or for those who live in apartments or houses without a yard, as there are many options of compact supports that can be placed both on the balcony, on the window sill or even in the kitchen to always leave your vegetables at hand.
The first item to be taken into account for your garden to be successful is the lighting. You need to know the intensity of the sun that hits the chosen place to put your vegetable garden, this will help you to define the species best suited to grow there and what kind of space you can afford.
There are some planting tips to be cultivated for each type of lighting, for example, if you have a little corner that has sunshine from late to late afternoon, you can grow vegetables, roots like carrots and beets, legumes like beans, peas, pod, and Brazilian berries such as pitanga and jabuticaba. Under the average sun (4 to 6 hours a day) we can plant vegetables and also seasonings, peppers, more delicate fruits and medicinal herbs. Already in some places where the sun is a little, for up to two hours, we can grow some classic tea herbs such as mint, lemon grass and Chilean boldo.
The question of space should be considered when making your home garden. If you own a yard or have a green space at home, your garden can be planted directly on the land, but if your space is small do not worry! There are several ways to make your garden fit in very small spaces without losing the charm or functionality, for example, using pots, recycled packaging of various materials, wooden boxes, flower boxes, and a series of items that can help you make a creative and harmonious layout of your garden.
The presence of a vegetable garden in the home kitchen is a decorative element that can be used for different purposes: you can give a more rustic touch if you use the demolition wood in the stand or vase, or even make the environment more cheerful using colored vases . Regarding the type of material, you can choose either to buy new items to receive your plants or play with the containers you already have at home: cups, tea cans, ceramics and porcelains that you no longer use.
Another option super compact and that is sure to give a touch more in the decór in your garden is the vertical garden. It will allow you to use the space of the walls to create a hanging garden and enjoy every corner of your space.
