A range of tips and advice from those more experienced to share with the members who are new to food gardening.
we live in a place where we aren’t allowed to touch the existing garden, so our entire vegie patch is either in raised garden beds (the type you buy at bunnings), pots or styrofoam boxes. we have got some interesting things growing (including raspberries), but i’m always on the hunt for new ideas and tips.
A dwarf lemon called ”lots a lemons” is doing fine in a big pot ,the first season it grew 4 beautiful,full sized juicy tasty lemons ,next, the blossoms fell of ,now, lovely blossoms again and I feel optimistic it will result in lemons .the tree is less than 1/2 meter high,and wide.
Go for dwarf apples in pots, also citrus and avocados, if you get those wheels for under the pots you can treat the avo’s and citrus to the warmest spots all year round. They’ll all be very happy in posts. If it’s a rental be brave do a bit of guerilla gardening, things like broad beans and peas will improve their soil can be stuck in pretty much anywhere and are gone within 3-6 mths. The idea that you have to have ‘a veggie patch’ is very limiting just sneak things into the gaps, eat em and their gone!
My dad has grown miniature blueberries in pots with lots of success (*in Perth, where they shouldn’t really grow).
