Container gardening in small balcony or space
Hi, do you use any pesticides?
Awesome instructable, wish I could have some chicks in the future. If i eventually move to house from apartment, it will have very limited space but hopefully this little backyard chicken fencing would work.Congratulations on wining Urban farming contest!
You should! it is very easy, you can plant more than basil. Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers too ! I planted mine few weeks ago, but there is still time.https://youtu.be/OzlkvTJ2gVM
No, it is not tool late yet. I have planted mine a week ago together with cucumbers, wich grows faster than tomatoes so you can plant them even later.
Oh boy. I just started to grow seeds from all the veggies that were laying around my veg drawer last week and was thinking how can I make a balcony garden. My balcony is huuuugeeee and we get a lot of sunshine (such a bleassing, in the middle of the city) so this post is just what I needed. I hope I can tap the I Made It! real son. Thanks for sharing!!! - gabbix
This is true. Apples will emit ethylene gas. This is a plant hormone that forces ripening or "climacteric" by shutting down certain genes, resulting in a cascade of biochemical events resulting in ripening. - steve.fenster.5
Well, that stinks! What about hanging or potted plants?I can understand a landlord's concern about water damage, but perhaps a gentle conversation about the steps you will take to eliminate that possibility might be enough to change their mind... - Kate Russell
Ripe fruit gives off ethylene which is a plant hormone which in turn speeds maturation. In a paper bag with anything ripe will work. - wumpsdad
Different seeds need different temperatures. Read the packets to see which varieties will do best for you. - Kate Russell
You can get metal or plastic hangers to hang long plant tubs on the outside of a window sill, or if that is forbidden, put/build a table or ledge on the inside 1 pot height below the the windowsill. Then the plants will always be in the light and you won't be wasting light on your pots. Use a good reflector such as polystyrene foam to keep them well illuminated. You can also install one of those mini bay windows that allow you to take better advantage of light outside the wall. Theseare great for herbs. - wumpsdad
HI there.... I live iin a coop apt for 27 yrs this july. Build a shelf with legs... either with inside measurements - use two knives to pry off wood piece. Try not to break off corners. Set aside. Measure pine board , cut, use 2 brackets ,measure and mark with red pencil. Screw brackets to board, insert white short plugs into marks under window. I use this system for my cat OMee to have a window sill perch. Good luck.
I have a lilac bush beside the garden. Planted cherry tomatoes which grew up into the bush. Produced 44 lbs! - surviver
