How to Start a Container Garden or Square Foot Garden


Sometimes the one thing sorely missing from apartment life is greenery. But it doesn't have to be that way. A small container garden can provide your life with both food and beauty - and save you money at the same time. It can even help wildlife: a small patch of greenery in the city can help sustain essential pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

There are two methods that can be implemented in apartment living: container gardening and square-foot gardening. If you already enjoy houseplants, you're halfway there!
