I find a lot of people express doubts as to the success of container planting. When left to struggle unaided many container gardens do suffer. Neglect of any garden will have an adverse affect on the harvest. But the following pictures should give you hope that it is possible to feed the family without a patch of land on which to dig.
I have permission from my lovely cousin to share with you the fabulous photos of her container garden. I discovered these pictures a while back and I still think it is one of the best examples of container gardening I have seen yet. They get a reasonable harvest and it is all accomplished on a balcony - no ground at all required here! It just goes to show that a little kiwi ingenuity goes a long way. My cousin lives in a rather different climate than we do, but I think that with careful planning and attention to varieties and conditions we can all replicate this level of success. Hopefully this inspires some of you to take the plunge and give it a go!
