Spring Roundup: Micro Gardens

Spring is in the air, and we’re looking forward to a crisp, sunny weekend here in the Bay Area. On weekends like these, we want to get outside and enjoy the fresh green leaves showing up everywhere. It also gets us thinking about planting some of our own.

Being urban or apartment-bound limits opportunities to dig into the dirt and grow something wonderful, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still possibilities. In fact, one of my favorite spaces ever featured in Anthology was the beautiful courtyard where dinner was served in the article “A Postcard from Paris” (Issue No. 5). All of the container gardens, window boxes, and planters make the courtyard feel so lush.

If you want to infuse some green into your apartment (or maybe even on your bike!), there are quite a few micro-sized garden options. We’ve pulled together five that are particularly inspiring. We hope you have a chance to get outside and get your hands dirty this weekend. See you back here on Monday!

I love that mason jar idea! Definitely something I want to implement this summer.
