A herb garden in your balcony
If you buy Mint (pudina), you can just plant the stems with the root (after using the leaves) in a pot.
My friend’s 3-year-old wanted to start a garden in their balcony. The friend wanted an easy and manageable aproach. Of course, as with most persons who have had some experience with balcony/terrace gardening, I wait for such opportunities to offer suggestions!
The easiest way to start an organic vegetable garden is with herbs. It takes little space, almost nothing of your time; and the way I see it – the sheer luxury of stepping into your balcony (as opposed to trudging to the nearest store, braving the traffic) to pluck a few leaves and garnish the dish being cooked should be enough reason to get someone started. Don’t you agree?
