Starting an edible garden only requires time, common sense and a little knowledge.
  1. If you have very little space or live in an apartment, then you can start vertical gardening and hanging gardens in your apartment's balcony.
  2. Another option for those who have small garden is to use containers.
  3. You can create a no-dig garden by laying newspapers, hay, fertiliser and compost.
  4. When choosing what to plant, you should consider planting only those produce you and your family members like to eat and which have good and longer yield, easy to grow, less susceptible to pests and diseases and easily stored or preserved. Choosing the right plants will save you a lot.

The advantage of growing vegetables at home is that you always get fresh vegetables.

Hello - My Dosakaya plant doesn't yield lots of fruits..
I see female buds on the plants but they don't bloom for pollination.
Any suggestions as why.. is plant deficient of any nutrients

Feed liquid fertilizer, add wood ash in soil and increase water. This may produce healthy blooms, more blooms and good nimber of fruits in Dosakaya and other plants.
