I’ve already told you that I’m an interior addict but have I told you that I’m a gardening geek as well? I don’t have a garden but I do have a balcony and I’ve decided to make it the garden I’ve wanted for years. The thing that interests me the most in the garden is herbs, fruit trees and other things that can be eaten. I think it’s great to be able to grow my own herbs since it feels like an eco friendly way to get healthy ingredients for cooking as well as a fun procedure to follow.
I love growing herbs, tomato plants and lettuce on the balcony and a big bonus is that it motivates my kids to eat vegetables. They definitely prefer eating vegetables which has been grown on our balcony and they actually eat most of the veggies on their plates, compared to almost nothing when I give them vegetables purchased in the shop. This means I get eco friendly ingredients for my cooking and tasty vegetables all summer.
Do you want to have your own herb garden on the balcony but with quick results? Then you can buy a complete planted herb garden from The Balcony Gardener. You can start sow your herbs quickly and it’s also a beautiful solution for any balcony. It’s also possible to get beautiful mixes with thyme and viola in the same planted garden. All planted solutions will make the balcony garden beautiful and complete! I personally prefer to follow the process from seed to complete plant but if you’re in a hurry this is certainly a great alternative!
