Nice guide from Amy Marie Adams
“Before you choose your veggies and plants, there are a few things to consider if you haven’t grown anything on your balcony in the past. Your balcony depending on the height of it and facing direction may have its own micro-climate. Planning goes a long way. Once you have answered the planning questions you are ready to begin to create the balcony garden of your dreams and determine which vegetables will thrive. Measure up your space and get out your pencil and paper and create a sketch – dream, imagine and create – but most importantly get planting. ”
Very good “Small-Space Vegetable Garden” book from Andrea Bellamy. A must have.
“If I could recommend one book for small-space vegetable gardening, this would be it. Andrea Bellamy nailed it!” —Joe Lamp’l, Growing a Greener World
