Growing food in the city in small spaces like balconies has fast become a new trend: in cities people are digging, planting and harvesting in all sorts of places. The urban gardening movement is transforming cites, turning the grey to green. All you need is a small growing space, a passion for growing your own food and a hint of creativity.
The self-watering pots in the LECHUZA Stone Collection are perfect for growing your own vegetables, salad, herbs or snack fruit and their natural stone finish makes them ideal for contemporaty urban balconies or roof terraces.
Herbs and vegetables in your balcony box
Naturally, the most important question when you start your urban garden is what you can plant. Plucking lettuce or rocket are also perfect for beginners and last a whole summer: if you only harvest the outer leaves, they keep growing back again and again.
Popular mini berry vines or small citrus trees transform any area into a relaxing green space in their stunning stone finish pots.
Even vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and zucchini are perfect for planting in containers. Regularly adding fertilisers speeds up the growth process and produce higher yields.
When growing your crop plants, seeds have the advantage of giving you a much wider selection and they're a lot cheaper than young plants. Young plants are much less sensitive, however, and they take less effort to grow.
