Urban Gardening Resources

    Containers allow you to garden on patios, paved courtyards, rooftops, or windowsills. They’re also useful if the soil in your garden is poor or contaminated. Learn more about how to grow successfully in pots, planters, or window boxes.

    If you have a patch of earth in the city, whether it’s a community garden plot, tree bed, or backyard, consider yourself lucky. Sure, you may face challenges like poor soil, lack of sunlight, rodents, and heat radiating off of the pavement, but with a little knowledge, you can grow a wide array of flowers, fruits, herbs and vegetables.

    A garden need not be located outside. Houseplants bring nature into your apartment or office. Learn how to pick the right ones for your light and humidity conditions and how to keep them happy and healthy.
