My landlord would kill me (not really, but pretty close) if I were to get any water on the wood tile flooring here, but I REALLY WANT a garden. His yard isn't available, so I'm wondering if there is any type of system I can set up to water and grow veggies (or at least some big flowers or plants) in my apartment. It's so sterile in here and LONELY!

Go to www.gardeners.com. They had some nice self watering planters so that you wouldn't have to bring water to your plants as often. Also use trays under them to catch water when you do water if you use traditional pots. If you are careful you shouldn't have any trouble with getting water on the floor. I don't know how traditional garden fare does inside though. Would your plants get enough light to grow??

My dad has come up with some ideas of inside gardening. I thought they were pretty interesting.

For one, he made a hanging pot holder for small herbs. Its all wood, 3 1/2 in. in width, 4ft length and 1/2 foot deep. He made the base a little wider, so I don't spill water on the floor either. (I spill the dog's water dish all over our tile floor and now when you walk on it, it cracks and pops in that area).

The other idea was mainly for strawberries. He would make a system from PVC pipe. Depending on how much we want, you would put 2-3 "t's" of PVC pipe with 2-4 short, 3 1/4 in pieces with end caps. You would then put gravel in the bottom part, only to cover, and then fill your t's with soil and plant seeds. I'm sure you can do this idea with any small herbs or veggies.

Check your local nurseries, too. I went to one last week and they had some interesting ideas for small to large places.

I've seen these advertised but have never purchased one. I might get one for growing salad greens this winter. They seem ideal for indoor apartment use.
