A simple addition to your patio planter can be chives; amazingly beautiful when added yo your urban gardening routine and also very useful in your kitchen.
For example, this beautiful planter has chives growing in it and foodies know that chives are absolutely delicious in many dishes. When homegrown they are even more amazingly flavourful. Along with their wonderful flavour, they add an exquisite beauty to any patio.
Another food that is shockingly easy to grow – green onions. All you have to do is stick the onion set (that is a slick little gardener term for the tiny onion that you plant) in the dirt and within a couple of weeks you have fresh green onions growing. And if you have ever tasted a green onion cut fresh from a garden, you will NEVER go back to store bought.
Go ahead, give it a try. Stick an onion set in your patio garden box. Then add some chives, some parsley, basil, whatever you want. You can grow some of the best tasting food. Get growing.
