Urban gardening

Splendido balcone fiorito

If you love plants and live in the city or large town but have a limited amount of space then urban gardening is for you,
even a tiny paved area, balcony,wall,courtyard or pathway can contain many beautiful plants in a number of creative ways.
In cities around the world everyday household objects like large soup cans, plastic bottles,crates and even old guttering has been used as a cheap aturnative to grow a large number of plants which can look stylish too. Ceramic pots on raised frames give height and add more room for pots on the wall behind and also on the ground below which will fill a small area easily with colourful flowering plants.
Another type of urban gardening which is becoming more popular is vertical gardening, this is when plants are grown downwards on a wall usually by attaching a frame that contains a special water retaining fabric in which many plants can be added, grow well and looks amazing,
This idea was invented by patrick Blanc a Spanish botanist who has created many amazing projects around the world, for more infohttp://www.verticalgardenpatrickblanc.com
