Whether you have a tiny studio apartment or just a bit of balcony space, it's still possible to grow a beautiful small garden, from nothing more than a window box, step, staircase, wall, porch, or patio.
Here we show you how to create a vibrant balcony garden with these no-sew, easy-to-make saddle bag planters. They will give you plenty of planting space for flowers, herbs, and edibles, and they look stylish and colorful, too. In this project, we used a selection of herbs, soft fruit, and edible flowers that can be planted in spring and summer. If you'd prefer to try something else, spring bulbs work really well for color, and small evergreen shrubs can offer year-round interest. All the instructions you need, along with a full list of necessary materials, are on the downloadable project PDF.
This project is taken from Small Space Garden Ideas, which shows you how to grow beautiful plants and tasty fruit and vegetables no matter what the size of your space. Full of small garden ideas, you will find inspiration to make creative use of every possible growing space in your home—and find some you never knew existed! Forty step-by-step projects draw on inexpensive upcycling ideas and homemade style with useful techniques for small-space gardening, such as installing water systems and outdoor electricity.
Small Space Garden Ideas is perfect for anyone looking to add a little bit of Eden to their patio, balcony garden, hanging baskets, roof garden, or vertical garden.
