Growing plants is important. It is healthy, greening, improves air quality and is all-round good for you. But this can be tough if you live in a second floor apartment without a balcony. This Instructable will show you how I grew carrots in a carport, radishes from rubbish, and spinach from wasted space.
Step 1: Materials
I got the idea for my garden while I was walking around the industrial estate in which I work. I saw a bunch of poly-boy cages waiting to be thrown out. I borrowed a friends ute and grabbed a couple.
A poly-boy is a 1m x 1m x 1m plastic cube with a reinforcing cages around it. It is used in industry to hold and transport 1000L quantities of liquids. I removed the plastic insert and just took the cages.
