The Plant Based Podcast

May 10, 2020

A very special inside out episode, where Michael looks at indoor windowsills, and Ellen looks at balcony planting.

Gardening has become the highlight of our lockdown days. It’s exciting to see during the pandemic, so many people enjoying gardening and growing their own food. But what if you don’t have much space? How do you enjoy the natural world from a balcony or patio or perhaps a windowsill?

First up, Michael chats through what’s growing on his windowsill at the moment. He has been experimenting with some outdoor patio plants, and the results have been really quite surprising.

In the second half of this episode, Ellen Mary discusses outside gardening in small spaces with container gardening on patios, balconies and window boxes. From top tips for keeping your containers thriving to her favourite balcony vegetables and perennials. There’s some fun window box combo’s in this episode too. Give them a try and tag us in with photos on social media!
