Next, we will tell you what you should take into account when setting up your urban garden.

Select the right plants for your urban garden

For this time of year, we recommend planting and growing vegetables that can withstand the hottest months of the year and need a lot of sun.

  • Lettuce: You can plant them in late spring and early summer since they can be harvested after 60 days. If you are a beginner, we recommend that you start with this type of vegetable.
  • Tomatoes: The seeds are planted in spring so that the harvest can be collected in the months of July and August. Of course, they require a little more skill and care than most vegetables since you have to put canes next to each plant at an approximate height of 2 meters to carry the weight of the fruits.
  • Pumpkins: They need a lot of sun to grow so it is advisable to plant it in summer. Of course, if you want to plant pumpkins make sure you have plenty of space.
