It is refreshing and satisfying to enjoy the literal fruits of your labor. Nothing feels better than tasting food that you’ve personally grown, picked and put on the table. However, with evolving lifestyles, few folks can manage or afford large thriving gardens in their busy schedules. The work, maintenance, and overall inconvenience make it easier to just stop by local farmer’s markets or grocery stores where the produce is wilted and not worth the penny.
The fact of the matter is, you can actually have your garden almost anywhere. With a little time and passion, it’s actually easy, affordable and extremely satisfying to set up a small apartment garden in your condo. Read on and find out how:
To conserve space, arrange one or two small pots in your condo to grow your garden. You can work with easy produce like cherry tomatoes or cilantro, which only require some watering and a little natural sunlight from a nearby window.
Instead of losing control and buying different plants that each have their own care schedule, focus on minute variation. You could
Choose to grow two to three of the same plants, or plant one of three different varieties each. This way tending to your small garden becomes much easier.
A light source is vital for your garden’s growth. Find a natural light source in your condominium, like a window or balcony. You could also use natural light bulbs or grow lights systems, which are very feasible. Even with the natural light, it’s recommended to have lamps standing by your potted plants for an extra light source in case of any seasonal changes.
Get the right pot
As mentioned before, each plant has its own specific needs. Make sure to research your desired plant’s requirements, and get the appropriate pot for its growth e.g. plants like cherry tomatoes requires individual flowerpots, while cilantro plants need large flat/bottomed pots.
Choose good soil
It seems easy to find soil for plants, but remember to get the appropriate soil of good quality for your plants, especially the first time. Visit a gardeners store to get your soil, which can be easily and economically reused for all your plants, present, and future.
Don’t forget the water
Watering schedules for your plants are crucial. Establish your plants’ watering needs like amount and intervals, and plan a schedule accordingly. This way you can work around the schedule so your plants are never overlooked.

Sadly, even with the right amount of dedication, setting an apartment garden can be difficult for people living in condos with little space, natural light or rental leases that prevent such measures. If you’re passionate about an apartment garden, then Sugar Wharf Condos is the place for you.
