5 Container Gardening Options for Apartment Gardeners

Apartment gardening and balcony gardening is challenging – you’re often limited on space and sun. You may think you “can’t grow much” in your small space garden, but with a few creative container gardening ideas you can still squeeze an impressive amount out of small spaces.

    Not sure if I missed it in the video… Any tips on making the transition from a plastic planter to a grow bag? I’m almost positive all the plants I got from my mom are root bound, and I want to make sure I don’t accidentally kill them the trans”plant” *lol*.

  3. Nhung Trinh on July 17, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Thank you for the video. It’s very helpful. I want to ask a silly questions about grow bag because I really want to try them. Will the water come out of the grow bag stain the floor? I’m worried because if the water damage or stain the floor, it will be a big problem to me.

    Try 4 bales of “coastal hay” instead of straw. It will make your whole yard smell amazing for months.

    Thanks Kevin. You are the coolest garden guy on the internet! Greetings from Poland. I’ve been thinking of starting a sectet garlic garden in the forest. Any tips? Thanks.

  6. Melat N on July 17, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    Thank you, this is so helpful. I’m just about to start a balcony garden in London. I have no experience beyond houseplants, my balcony is surrounded by high rise buildings so light is limited and summer is ending so it will probably be a disaster but I’ll learn and am really looking forward to it 😊

    These products are so helpful!!! Been wondering how to do gardening without a balcony this year but these are great suggestions.

  12. seda on July 17, 2022 at 11:40 pm

  13. Dream Rider on July 17, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    Are reusable shopping bags okay for grow bags?

    I like the Dollar Tree fabric tote bag, Kroger’s shopping bag, & Marshall’s large tote bags.

    I’m enjoying your videos & learning a lot. Thanks.

  14. Northwoods Gardening on July 17, 2022 at 11:40 pm

    Funny how time flys and boom another 500k subbies keep doin ya thang man

    living with my parents, I started to garden and as someone who is the first in the family to try to grow their own garden for tea (huge tea enthusiast) and cooking, I’ve decided to try it and see what I can do. I’ve seen all over the internet about what is good soil and what is a good fertilizer and some others have contradicted that. I’ve had to sow my herbs from seed and I’m waiting for them to germinate (started them directly in their containers on the 12th of April 2021) and the gardening community has just been so kind and so informative! some think for a young man to get into gardening that they are interested in growing pot but that is quite the opposite. so my starting herbs are lemon balm, spearmint, and cilantro. I’m going to be growing them indoors and I think it would be nice for in my room to have some plant life and the smells of the oils cleaning up my room. my soil choices were limited but I was advised that Miracle-Gro’s moisture control potting mix is great for the herbs and so I had to get them. the mint i was recommended from bonnie to use the inorganic miracle-gro all-purpose but I have seen that was more expensive than the miracle-gro performance organic edibles mix and according to the site of miracle-gro, the organic one is specifically for veggies and herbs. what herbs I don’t know but I guess I will find out. I think what I’m going to do is when it comes to feeding time, I’m going to put in a half dose of what is recommended and if the plants need more ill go a quarter up since from my research these herbs don’t need that much feeding for the most part. I don’t want to give them too much so they go all outgrowing in size rather than potency but we’ll see how this goes. kinda nervous but also kinda excited at the same time. thank you so much for having the idea of a channel for growing veg and herbs and being honest with all of your tips and advice! it’s because of people like you that I can make this dream closer than if I were alone! <3

  18. Maria Giannopoulou on July 17, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Hi from Greece! I ordered a grow bag from internet plus one with the pockets ( you said you opened slits in it) now do we put any pebbles for drainage in both cases or not?

  31. Hillary Youngman on July 18, 2022 at 12:01 am

    Some gardening spaces can be really intimidating for beginners so thank you for making videos that are so accessible!!

  32. S. Velez-Lorenzo on July 18, 2022 at 12:01 am

    Love all your ideas! I live in an apartment in Brooklyn, NY and That’s my one of my hobbies. Especially, growing your culinary herbs to save some money. Wishing you the very best. Dios te bendiga. In English it means God bless you.

    "It’s much harder for the wind or debris to knock these over" all I’m thinking of is "or raccoons" lol

  37. Torie Harris on July 18, 2022 at 12:08 am

    This channel is so cool

  38. Lectric Kitty on July 18, 2022 at 12:09 am

    I have some acreage but I am starting an indoor winter garden this year. I love the fabric grow bags and the way they "air prune" the roots so they don’t become rootbound. Now I’m off to find that multi-pocket grow bag. Thanks for the great videos!

  39. Ethel Kussow on July 18, 2022 at 12:10 am

    Hello Kevin. What is the brand of the reinforced 5 gallon grow bag, and where did you get it from? Do you have a video to help with growing calamansi limes in Zone 5A? If you’re unfamiliar with said limes, please ask your lola about them. Thanks. We’re transplants from San Diego, and we were crushed to learn that we couldn’t have a lime tree in the backyard when we first moved here in Indiana.

  40. Freddie Ivory on July 18, 2022 at 12:11 am

    Great ideas! Thank you for sharing

  41. Mary Grott on July 18, 2022 at 12:13 am

    That multi-pocket grow bag looks very cool. I might get one for my son.

  42. Thor on July 18, 2022 at 12:15 am

    Love ur videos!!! Learned a lot from this video as we grow all our plants in containers. Mostly food plants. Thx

  43. Morgan Lewis on July 18, 2022 at 12:18 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the shoe rack idea. Thinking about hanging that on my fence with different types of lettuce! Thanks!

  44. Nancy Samsel on July 18, 2022 at 12:19 am

    You are amazing. Thank you!

  45. queenSummerKeli on July 18, 2022 at 12:20 am

    The multipocket bag is superkewl!

  46. Jennifer Johns on July 18, 2022 at 12:22 am

    you just popped up outta no where. Best intro! I got scared alittle! HAHAHAHA.

  47. Britni on July 18, 2022 at 12:22 am

    I’m a bit late to the party but I have one of those vertical planters he has and I’m concerned that some of my herbs will take over as it seems really shallow. I’m scared the roots will grow sideways. Should catnip, thyme, and dill be ok or should I switch them to individual containers?

  48. Kamilla Chantika on July 18, 2022 at 12:22 am

    Your channel is my favorite. Thank you for always making helpful contents! I’m still a beginner.

    After a small 1m2 veggie patch I had this year for the first time we’ll be moving to the 15th floor with an exposed balcony. I’m assuming it’ll be quite windy. Any tips for veggies that don’t mind the wind too much?
