Growing Fruit in Small Spaces

No space for a garden?  Don't worry you can add fruits to your patio, balcony or other small space landscape.

Try growing strawberries as a groundcover. The white flowers, edible red fruit and brilliant red fall color add sparkle to your landscape. Or grow them in a pot on your balcony or deck.  They’ll be close at hand and easy to harvest a few for your breakfast cereal or afternoon snack.

And plant breeders are adding lots of new compact fruit varieties for small and large space gardeners to grow.

Raspberry Shortcake is a small 2 to 3 feet tall and wide thornless plant perfect for small space gardeners and containers. You’ll be picking fresh tasty raspberries for most of the summer.

The new compact blueberries add pretty flowers, edible fruit and great fall color to your container and in-ground plantings. And the narrow upright Urban apple trees make managing and harvesting apples a breeze.

A bit more information: Expand your fruit garden by growing citrus in pots. The fragrant flowers and tasty fruit make a nice addition to the garden and your favorite beverage. Those in colder climates will need to move the plants indoors for the winter.
