No garden? Here are 66 things you can grow at home in containers

NO-GARDEN-HERE-ARE-66-THINGS-YOU-CAN-GROW-AT-HOME-IN-CONTAINERS

Gardening and the process of growing your own food is not limited only to those who have a garden. There are ways to do this even though you have limited space.

With a small effort, we can all become gardeners and grow our own non-GMO food. Make sure you opt for the appropriate planter or container and make sure you learn how to do it properly. Start by finding some seeds or starter plants.

Here’s a list of many foods that you can grow even in an urban environment and even if you don’t have enough space for a garden. These tips will serve you a lot!

TREE FRUITS – INCLUDING APPLES

You don’t need much space; you can grow apples in a container whether it is on the balcony or other small space. This technique is called espaliering.

  • Kumquats
  • Blackberries
  • Figs
  • Pomegranates
  • Blueberries
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Avocados

CITRUS FRUITS

These types of trees are especially good for beginning gardeners. Citrus trees can easily be grown indoors, so no matter how inexperienced you are, or how little outdoor space you have, you can still enjoy fresh-picked, hyper-local fruit.

  • Meyer lemons
  • Dwarf oranges
  • Tangerines
  • Limes
  • Grapefruit

TROPICAL FRUITS

Everyone thinks that they are very hard for growing, but you will be surprised how easy and simple these fruits are for growing, even in non-tropical climates. You can grow:

  • Papaya
  • Pineapple
  • Bananas
  • Guavas 

THE REAL SURPRISES

  • Strawberries
  • Aloe vera
  • Tea (herbal one)
  • Quinoa
  • Hops (the ‘spice’ ingredient in beer is pretty easy to grow)

THE NON-SURPRISES

  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Sweet peppers
  • Hot peppers
  • Summer squash
  • Other squashes, such as pumpkin and acorn 

MELONS

  • Golden midget watermelon
  • Small cantaloupe
  • Jenny lind melon (an heirloom cantaloupe)

HERBS

Almost all herbs grow well indoors, but if you do any container-sharing, make a little research first and learn which herbs exist well together (to prevent hogging of water for instance by one and leaving the others dried out).

  • Sage
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Catnip
  • Parsley
  • Chives
  • Rosemary 

LEAFY GREENS

  • Swiss chard
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Mesclun greens
  • Arugula
  • Lettuces (from micro-greens to head or loose-leaf)
  • Collard greens
  • Mustard greens

ROOT VEGETABLES

  • Beets
  • Potatoes
  • Carrots

OTHER HEALTHY-SOUNDING STUFF

  • Wheatgrass
  • Sprouts
  • More sprouts: lentil sprouts and mung bean
  • Turnips
  • Kohlrabi
  • Rutabagas
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Celeriac
  • Rhubarb
  • Parsnips
  • Pole beans
  • Jerusalem artichoke
  • Mushrooms
  • Asparagus (despite some disagreements and statements that it does not do well in a container. You should try if you are willing to risk)
