The vast majority of people believe that to have their own garden it is necessary to have a patio or large spaces of land, however, none of this is true. Just a little creativity and some tricks are enough to be able to have our own vegetables at home.

There is a wide variety of options when designing a garden at home, and very few materials are required to do so.

vegetable garden in pots

A good option is to place the seeds of the vegetables that we want to grow in individual pots. It is important that these pots have good drainage, that is, with holes in the bottom, so that the plant does not have moisture. In addition, it is important to locate the pot in a place where there is good ventilation and sunlight for several hours a day. Most species need at least six hours of direct sunlight per day.

Garden in boxes or bins

Another alternative is to use boxes or bins, they must be made of wood or plastic, since these give us a larger surface than pots, which is better for the correct development of crops.

garden in bottles

Gardens in plastic bottles are an ecological option. These should have holes at the bottom to ensure good drainage.

vertical gardens

They can be made of fabric, plastic, wood. One thing to keep in mind is that this type of orchard has little space for the development of plants.


Vegetables need a minimum of 5 hours a day of direct sunlight to survive.

All gardens need good drainage.
