Want to be a compact gardener? It’s easy with this infographic!
Gardening is good for you, according to a new infographic produced by Compost Direct (below).
Older gardeners have a 36-47 percent lower risk of dementia than non-gardeners. However, with urban spaces on the rise there’s less room for people who’d like to get into garden.
Thankfully, there are many ways to grow crops in small spaces—from potted plants indoors to veg patches and grow bags. Did you know that you can grow potatoes in compost bags and bin liners? By following a simple growing process, you can enjoy some pristine spuds without needing a full size garden.
How about growing crops in specialist grow bags? With just a small amount of space, you can grow fruits and veggies to feed your whole household—from tomatoes and carrots to herbs and courgettes.
Check out the full “How to be a Compact Gardener” infographic below to see how to grow potatoes, tomatoes, veg patches and more. You can also find out how to maximise your growing area by building window boxes and vertical gardens. No matter what kind of outdoor space you have, there’s no excuse not to garden!
