If you live in an apartment and miss creating a garden, think up. You can install a trellis for a vine plant of ivy or you can use potted plants, which are easy to maintain. Hanging shelves on either side of your patio makes for a nice touch on either side of your patio door. If you have a shared space with your landlord, ask for a small space to grow a vegetable garden and share the goods. Your landlord will probably be more than happy to allow you an even bigger space for your garden.
