4 Steps to Start a SMALL Balcony Vegetable Garden|Tips from



We started a SMALL balcony vegetable garden (3 square meters) on our rental apartment last spring. As a trained landscape designer in California, I would like to share 4 steps and some tips on how to set up an edible balcony garden at home, especially on how to maximize the space of a small space while meeting different functions requirements – grow, work, store, and relax. There are also some useful plant lists for beginners to get started. Hope this will inspire you to start in this early spring!

冬去春來,又到了一年辛勤耕種的季節。去年的春天,我們第一次開始嘗試陽台種植。陽台雖小,收穫頗豐,最近我們整理了我們經驗和些許心路歷程。這期著重介紹我們是怎麼初步分析小空間、合理設計佈局,並提供了一些適合新手的種植清單。希望在這個早春可以對你有所啟發!
