      Indoor garden?

      Sunday, September 11th, 2011

      I live in an apartment without a patio but I have two E/W facing windows, so I pretty much always have some sunlight.
      Are there any relatively small plants(herbs, maybe?) that can be grown indoors, in a small planter, and without a whole lot of light?

      Also, having a planter that hangs out of a window isn’t an option because there is a brick "lip" right outside both windows.

          Indoor garden help/Pacific Northwest in January?

          Saturday, July 30th, 2011

          I would like to start an indoor container garden in my apartment and I need some assistance. I live in Oregon and we don’t get much sun light in winter months. I would put the plants in front of the window obviously, and my apartment is about 62f degrees.

          Would vegetables grow under these conditions?

          Listed below are the types of veggies I want to grow from seeds. Any help with the size of container, or anything at all would be a great help. Ive never gardened anything before, so consider you are talking to an idiot.

          cherry tomatoes
          leaf lettuce
          radishes
          beans
          oregano

          Any other easy to grow vegetable options or any other tips at all would be awesome. Thank you.

            How to make an indoor composting bin? I live in tropical country BTW?

            Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

            I wanna build a composting bin but I don’t have a garden / yard because I live in an apartment. Is there any composting solution for me for indoor? BTW I live in a tropical country, which means that there’s a lot of ants and little critters such as roaches, geckos, etc.
            thanks for all of you who responded. Alternatively, if I put it on my outdoor balcony instead of indoor, which composting option is the best?

              Sunday, July 10th, 2011

              I would love to grow lavender or other aromatherapeutic plants, but don’t have access to a garden so I’m left to inside my apartment.
              But I have no gardening experience so if ya’ll have any suggestions, that would be great! Thanks

                Especially helpful if they’re about small spaces, herbs, and organic gardening. I have an apartment and I’d like to have a small organic herb and flower garden on my deck, but I’m not sure where to start. Thanks!

                    Indoor garden?

                    Thursday, May 12th, 2011

                    I live in an apartment and have no yard, patio, etc. We aren’t really allowed to have anything outside our doors on the sidewalk. I love to plant and garden and I miss having the space to do it. Is there any way to, inexpensively, do this indoors? What kind of things can I plant?

                    Details, please!
