Take up container gardening in Asia
One of the most space effective ways for you to garden in your apartment is via a technique called container gardening. Container gardening is the practice of exclusively growing fruits, vegetables, and plants in recycled containers or brand new pots of course, whatever you can get your hand on. Gardening is no longer the exclusive pastime of homeowners with large yards. Almost anything can be grown in a container as long as you give your potted plants the same love and care you would a regular garden. Plan before you plant. Where you place your containers will depend on the types of flowers or vegetables you’re growing. Some plants need full sun, while others prefer a little (or a lot of) shade. The beauty of container gardening is that you can move pots to more favorable conditions if they’re not thriving in their original location.
