Gardening Know How wouldn’t be what it is today without the many talents of people behind the scenes, such as Nikki Tiley. Nikki has been with Gardening Know How since its nascence and, as Senior Editor/Head Writer, she has been instrumental in bringing a vast knowledgebase to countless gardeners. She is also a prolific garden writer outside of the Gardening Know How realm and has penned 6 books, including the Bulb-o-licious Garden and The Garden Crypt. The good folks at Gardener’s Guide recently interviewed Nikki Tiley to get her perspective on a multitude of gardening related topics, which you can read about here.
Here is an excerpt from the interview:
What are some of the setbacks of limited space in gardening and do you have any tips to overcome them?
Not having enough room to grow your garden can leave people feeling frustrated but this can easily be remedied. I recommend using containers and taking advantage of whatever vertical space you may have available. Pretty much any plant that can be grown in a garden can be grown in containers so long as the container accommodates the overall root system and provides adequate drainage. Containers come in all shapes and sizes, and they offer additional versatility in that they can be moved around as needed should weather become a factor. Allowing plants to grow up high can make use of space that would otherwise go to waste. Use shelving, hanging baskets, trellising or other structures to accomplish this.
