Here are some ideas of what you can grow in a small space:

Verandah Planters

  • Leafy greens – Looking for fresh salad? Pick what you need when you need it. There is no need to harvest the whole plant. Just pick what you need and let the plant keep growing.
  • Herbs – Love cooking? The Verti Gro pots are fantastic for herbs from oregano to thyme and basil and everything in between.
  • Brassicas – Vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage do incredibly well in vertical towers. With the offset planting spaces, they don’t overcrowd other plants and the roots get all the nutrient they need through the self-watering system.
  • Strawberries – Strawberries are amazing in vertical planters. With the new rounder edge design, they were made with strawberries in mind. The weight of the fruit no longer creases the stalk. The plant literally hangs on the curve keeping your fruit out of the soil. Who doesn’t love a fresh strawberry!

FoodCubes

  • Root vegetables – Carrots, parsnips and even potatoes are amazing in the FoodCubes. The have the depth that root vegetables need. Because the FoodCubes are wicking beds, the root vegetables have a ready supply of water and nutrient available to them.
  • Beans, peas and other legumes – With the ability to put a trellis on the Foodcube, you can grow any legume that requires height and something to hang on to. Because it is all contained within a small space, you don’t need a big back garden to grow food. Just a little imagination.
  • Tomatoes – Using the trellis, you can grow any type of tomato you like. The wicking bed ensures plenty of water to the roots (tomato plants are very thirsty when fruiting) and the trellis gives you somewhere to train the plant ensure good aeration and support for the fruit.
  • Cucumbers, zucchini, melons – If you have a bit of extra balcony space, these guys love a wicking bed. They to tend to go a bit crazy, so make sure you have a bit of extra space beside the FoodCube to let them run.
  • Capsicums – Another great growing plant for a FoodCube with a trellis. Train them upwards and have fresh capsicums all season.
  • Fruit Trees – YES! Fruit Trees! Apples, pears, apricots… you can have them right on your balcony. The key here is to espalier your trees. Click here to learn more about espalier. As long as you prune your trees well and train them properly, you can grow trees in a wicking bed and have fresh seasonal fruit at your fingertips.
