Starting an Urban Garden: The Basics - Page 2
Get your Supplies
Don’t get hoodwinked by all the fancy gardening supplies out there – you can get away with using recycled materials, such as yogurt containers, or build your own 18-gallon self-watering planters. Add some soil, get an inexpensive watering container (or use a water pitcher that you already have!) and you’re good to go! Urban gardening need not be expensive.
Enjoy your Garden
Follow the planting instructions on the seed packets, and enjoy your garden! Gardening really is a labor of love, and there are many more articles that could be written on how to ensure your thumb is a green one, and not brown – but the most important part is to have fun! You’ve embarked on a hobby that’s good for your mind, body, and soul. Happy gardening!
