Growing Fruit and Veg in Your Teeny Tiny Garden

gardenLast week we went into how you can grow fruit and vegetables in your teeny tiny flat, and how even with no light you can manage to grow mushrooms.

Today however, we are going in to how you can grow different types of fruit and veg when you’ve got a little bit more space, namely in the shape of a small garden.

Gardens are perfect for growing fruit and vegetables that need to root down in the ground or space to breathe, are not necessarily the ones that need the most light.

Here are the top 3 fruits and vegetables that you can grow in your garden, regardless of how big or small it is.

Potatoes: Potatoes are great root vegetables and the type of potato that you are able to grow is usually decided by the time of year it is.

The most important thing that you should take into consideration when growing potatoes is the area that you grow them in.

They should be planted in a spot that gets the most sunlight and has little or no shade.

The soil should be deep, well drained and moist.

Lot’s of people grow potatoes in dustbins to provide the perfect conditions for them to thrive, but you can grow them in the ground too!

Blackcurrants: Blackcurrants are pretty adaptable when it comes to the actual process of growing them, which makes them perfect for even the smallest of gardens.

As a fruit they do prefer sunny spots, but will still grow with partial shade.

They are also pretty good at growing in any soil type too, although arguably the best soil for them to grow in is very fertile, moist and well drained.

Mostly, people decide to plant blackcurrant bushes in the ground, but they can be grown in large containers too.

Dwarf Runner Beans: Dwarf runner beans are the better option for smaller gardens out of the two main types, dwarf and climbing.

This is simply because in most small gardens there often isn’t the space to make a sturdy frame for them to climb.

Although they are sensitive to extremely cold and windy environments, they do thrive in cool temperatures just as long as they get some sun.

Perhaps they are the perfect vegetable to think about growing this spring?
