Who said that you need a large terrace and a large area to grow your vegetable garden? Just because you live in the city or have a small balcony doesn’t mean you can’t grow fruit or vegetables. There’s nothing better than being able to offer your guests freshly prepared bites with vegetables and fruit from the garden. Since 2013, Le Balconier has had a mission: to reinvent the art of living in the city! In this blog post, we offer four suggestions of fruits and vegetables that you can grow in the comfort of your small terrace. 

What should you consider when you want to have a small vegetable garden on your terrace? 

  • Take the time to measure the surface of your balcony. Depending on what you want to grow, it will be easier to judge whether you have room to grow your vegetable garden. For larger spaces, you can opt for balcony planters. For smaller areas, go ahead with Greenbo balustrade pots or jars.

  • It is important that you consider the evolution of fruit and vegetables over time. Some plants, which seem small at first, will take up much space over the weeks.

  • Last but not least, keep in mind that some fruits or vegetables require more light than others. Depending on the level of light on your balcony, it will be necessary to choose your plants accordingly.

Our 4 suggestions of fruits or vegetables to grow on your balcony. 

  • Cherry tomatoesPerfect to complement your salads or serve as Bruschetta; cherry tomatoes are a must for small terraces. For best results, plant cherry tomatoes in May or mid-July. We invite you to read our article on the subject for more details.

  • Aubergines
    Complete your Vegetable Tajines with aubergines freshly picked from your balcony. Why take the time to go to the grocery shop when all you have to do is plant the aubergines towards the end of spring so that you can enjoy them as early as July?

  • Peppers
    To grow peppers, it is important that you have enough light! Requiring little maintenance and easy to sow, they can be planted in early summer and harvested 5 or 6 months later. Perfect to offer your guests stuffed peppers.

  • Some mint
    Whether to bring life to your cocktails or add flavour to your salads, mint remains a beautiful plant to put on your terrace. If you don’t have plenty of sunlight, don’t worry, mint doesn’t need much light. Start planting as early as April to harvest before the arrival of summer in May.
