Summer is over, summer veggies are gone. So now is the time to plant our late autumn and winter Tokyo urban garden.
Whether you`re an accomplished gardener or a novice, gardening is a great opportunity to partner with Mother Nature and bond with family and friends. Gardening teaches patience, care and offers a pathway to better health and nutrition.
Our advice for novice gardeners is to start small and simple. Begin with easy to grow foods like herbs, lettuce and spinach; review our tips on Balcony Gardening, and get started.
D2 or Super Viva (a home center) also carries a nice selection of seedlings, seasonal seed showcase and a variety of planters and soil. Stop in and start your urban garden today.
