You Can Still Grow Vegetables In Your Urban Garden!

We want everyone to feel that they can grow their own produce, even with little or no outside space! 

Here are some great ways you could make your own urban vegetable garden in your home.

Containers

Container Garden.

Large pots and containers are great for growing herbs, leafy greens and strawberry plants. If you buy deep enough containers you can even grow carrots, parsnips and potatoes! Growing in containers also means they can be moved around sunny spots easily. 

Raised Planters 

Raised Planters.

Raised planters are great and can come in a range of sizes to suit your space. The height is great for those that find it physically challenging to garden when planting into the ground. Most raised planters will be deep enough to grow any vegetables you wish!

Grow Bags

Grow Bags

Grow bags encourage healthy plant growth, your plants will have a healthier root system. The breathable fabric used is great for temperature control, and for preventing overwatering. When not in use they fold up small so take up little space.

Windowsill

Windowsill.

Beautiful plant pots on your sunny windowsill, growing fresh herbs and salad leaves make it so easy to add delicious flavour to your recipes. Having plants indoors makes it easy to care for them, and see when they need watering and harvesting.

Ladders

Ladder Garden.

This idea makes for a great feature in your home or in your small outside space. They are mainly used for growing herbs and leafy greens as the pots aren't deep enough for many vegetables. This is a great idea if you live in a rented property so can't drill into the walls.

Trellis

Trellis.

Using a trellis is similar to using the previous ladder method, however, a trellis is mainly for outdoor use and can cover a larger wall space meaning you can grow even more! It is also a more secure method as it can't fall over easily. A trellis is also great for growing climbing crops like runner beans!

Tiered Shelves

Tiered plant shelf idea.

Making planters from anything you can find, like an old chest of drawers or wooden crates, anything you like really! It is a great way to upcycle old furniture, whilst growing some delicious produce. However, be sure to make your shelves tiered so that each shelf gets enough sunlight for your plants to thrive!

Grow Lights

Grow Lights.

Grow lights are great for helping your plants grow if your home doesn't get much light. You can also get smart indoor gardens like the one shown above, they take care of your plants automatically. Making sure they constantly have enough water, nutrients and light. 

Balcony Garden

Balcony Garden.

You can find lots of different sized planters and pots with hooks, made especially for hanging over your balcony rails. There are lots of large hanging planters on the market giving you plenty of option as to what you can grow. 

Hanging Baskets

Hanging Baskets.

Hanging baskets make a great feature in your outdoor space, they are great for growing leafy greens and herbs. You can find hanging planters in a variety of sizes and materials so you'll be sure to find something perfect for your space!

Terrarium

Terrarium.

Terrariums make great features in any room, although they may not be suitable for growing vegetables, you can still grow herbs and leafy greens. We have one just like this in our home, I use it as a greenhouse and put my seeds in there whilst waiting for them to germinate.

Window box

Window Box Garden.

Window boxes are usually used to grow beautiful flowers, but they can most definitely be used to grow vegetables. They are usually quite large and depending on how many windows you have in your home, you can grow a surprisingly large amount of produce.


We would love to see photos of your imaginative urban gardens, especially if you are growing anything from our seed range!
