Urban Organic Gardening ~ in Planter Boxes and more… Gothic Arch Greenhouses

If you live where there is little or no open ground for a conventional row or raised bed garden opportunity, then you may want to consider growing in planter boxes or large containers.

All you need is a sunny spot that receives 4 – 5 or more hours of sunlight a day and you should be able to grow many of your favorite vegetables and herbs.

With no end to the rising cost of vegetable in sight, raising your own choice vegetable is more appealing than ever. An added plus is to raise your vegetables ‘organically’ to avoid potentially health robbing properties of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Leafy green vegetables are perhaps the easiest of all varieties to grow in containers and planter boxes. Your loose leaf lettuces, Swiss chard, kale, collards, spinach and many of the Asian varieties are now quite popular.

If room allows, try growing some of your favorite root vegetables such as radishes and sweet potatoes….turnips and carrots.
In order to grow through-out the winter, you may want to consider purchasing a quality built greenhouse .
