Vast spaces of land aren’t required to make your farm. If you want to create a permaculture garden in a small area, try out container gardening. Believe it or not, you can grow your own food in pots, cans, plastic bottles, and even old boots. As long as there is light and shade, your plants can grow anywhere in your home. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when making your permaculture container garden:
- When your plant is in a container, you can move it around anywhere. But, you need to choose the right site that is most suitable for your plant. Factors to consider are the amount of light and shade that your plant needs.
- If you want more plants to fit into a small area, try placing plants on shelves, hanging pots, or trellises to maximize that limited space.
- When growing plants in a small area, you might not get as much food as planting crops on the land. Try concentrating on vegetables and herbs that mature quickly and have high chances of continuous harvesting. An excellent example of vegetables that fit the criteria is leafy greens.
