Growing plants in a small apartment

Not all of us live in a home with a backyard where we can grow our small garden. Many people do live in apartments, and have never visualized being able to grow plants in such a confined space. However, there is no reason why you can’t grow plants even in an apartment. Welcome to the world of container gardening where you can grow plants in containers, enough so that you can proud of what you have accomplished.
There are several steps that you can take to make this wish true:
1. Get a variety of containers, clean them and disinfect them. These should be adequate to hold soil, and that can have holes made in them (for drainage).
2. Get the required soil from any place that can give you some
3. Use old newspapers, kitchen waste (such as peel, coffee grinds, left-over vegetables, etc). Don’t use meat. Keep on adding water to this combination (kept in a dark corner), and get and add some earthworms
4. Get seeds, but you need to make sure that you get seeds for vegetables that are suitable for small containers such as small Broccoli, mini Cabbage, mini Carrots, container tomatoes, etc. You can get a lot of these by going down to the nearest seed shop and asking for veggies that can be grown in containers.
