As with any garden, it’s important to choose the right plants for your space. Small gardens, particularly those in more urban areas, often come with other tricky conditions – such as being shaded by tall buildings or getting a lot of direct sunlight on a balcony.
When selecting your plants, make sure you take the conditions into account and select those you know will flourish. Herbs are excellent plants for sunny spaces, so we’d recommend trying your hand at growing thyme, sage, rosemary and chives if you get a lot of sun. For areas that receive partial or more shade, opt for hosta plants.
