Vegetables for the Patio, Balcony or Window Box

Posted Jan 09 2010 3:20pm

So many vegetables can be grown on the patio, balcony or window box.

  • Very little space is needed to produce a regular supply of fresh, healthy salad leaves, and one courgette plant will produce plenty of fruit, without causing a glut.
  • We have a friend who lives in a fourth floor flat, with a small west facing balcony, who grows tomatoes, salad leaves, courgettes and french beans.
  • A great variety of vegetables can be grown in containers, but it is important to select a small or mini-variety.


Examples of vegetables which can be grown on a patio or window box are:
