I just moved to a much smaller apartment and I no longer have a backyard. I've got my large pot with rosemary, marjoram, and thyme and I've started a few other herbs and avocados on the window sill.
So what do you grow in small spaces? Any suggestions? Thanks!

    cherry tomatoes and lettuce grow great in containers.

      Depending on sun exposure hot peppers such as Cayenne can do well in containers.

        If you're talking food plants and you have limited space, I'd ditch the avocado since it is unlikely to get big enough to give you fruit....maybe replace it with a dwarf lemon tree in a pot. Arugula in a box can be good, also parsley, mint (needs damp), and marjoram.
