No space for a garden--try yardless gardening

Living in an upstairs apartment or a condominium with a small back patio? These are perfect spots for yardless gardens that can accommodate container gardens. Before choosing your plants and containers, make sure the plants you want to grow will have enough room to grow and develop roots.

Also make sure that the containers have drainage holes so the growing medium doesn't get waterlogged. Use a well-draining potting mix with organic matter like sphagnum peat moss and composted bark and vermiculite or perlite to improve drainage.
Container gardens allow everyone to garden
 regardless of whether they have a yard or not.
