The Modernized Concept of Apartment Gardening
Apartment gardening usually means growing houseplants and perhaps a pot of tomatoes or herb on a balcony. A herb has many uses, right from garnishing recipes, to curing certain infections and illnesses to adding an aesthetic look to garden. Many people want to have their own garden, but without a worthy piece of land to start a garden is almost impossible. The best part of herb is that no garden is needed to grow them. The indoor apartment space can act as a perfect host for growing herb plants. Apartment gardening is the best option for those who want their own garden but lack space. Growing cooking herb plants in an apartment garden is easier than you may think, and provides some advantages over an outdoor garden.
Apartment garden is also called as indoor garden. Making apartment garden firstly determines space where herb plants can be grown and it is easier to grow food. Balcony and window are most common locations used by many people for apartment gardening or any other location in the apartment can be chosen if these two are not suitable.
If the apartment has the luxury of rooftop access at the residence, it can easily be transformed into a thriving green space, with a little imagination and nurture from Mother Nature. Most rooftops are notoriously windy, so a plan to sheltering plants from the elements will be required. A glass shield provides a permanent wind shelter that doesn’t reduce light and doubles as a coffee-break area. In contrast, installing a netting material allows integration of additional vines—from beans and peas to ivies—into the hideaway, while still sheltering main plants from the breeze.
When considering a rooftop or balcony garden, it’s also important to map out which areas are sunniest and which are shadiest. Therefore proper planning is required for plant layout based on the plants’ shade and sunlight needs: This will help them stay vibrant—and alive.
One of the advantages of container apartment gardening is that the plants are not picky about the type of container in which they grow. A small tomato plant will not be embarrassed by being planted in an upside down football helmet and most flowers will not hold it against the grower if they end up in a used boot. The only restrictions involved in container apartment gardening is the imagination and budget of the person inclined to grow food.
