Tiny plants are the sweetest little solutions for gardeners with limited space. The advantage of going small, other than tiny plants being simply adorable, is that they are fast-growing and will still look lovely as they get bigger. Save space by going vertical or start a mini veggie garden and experiment with microgreens – they’re delicious! Microgreens are also a great choice for beginner gardeners who are still finding their green fingers.

Raised beds and edible pots are great space-savers and good for growing beginner veggie gardens. Sow pot peppers, mini tomatoes, and compactly-sown microgreens for a tasty patch of nutrition. To give your microgreens the best head start, use special vegetable compost, available at your garden centre.
