8 little gardening ideas for apartment dwellers

Just because you live in an apartment or small house doesn’t mean that you have to give up your green thumb. I found this sweet collection of ideas that brings gardening to even the teeniest of homes.

    Hi,
    I love your vertical garden using pellets. What do you suggest for keeping them upright without drilling a hole in my bricks? My home is semi-detached and next door’s wall is my garden wall, so I can’t damage it.

    Thanks 🙂

      Hi Anna,

      Hmm I have never done it before so would suggest checking out the link below the image. The best thing to do might be to ask someone at your hardware store as they will probably have solutions for you.
