It is not easy to include greenery or any kind of garden into an urban setting, especially small apartments.
But there are some fun options to have your own tiny patch of green in the city.
The first pictured is the indoor allotment garden for the kitchen.
The mini wooden shed has its own white picket fence surrounding three miniature plant pots with drainage holes for growing your herbs for cooking.
The roof of the shed opens and the door swings open to reveal snips, soil pellets and a pack of three seeds – coriander, basil and oregano - to make it easy to get started.
The mini allotment is a great way to bring the outdoors indoors and is a cute addition to the kitchen.
The piece comes from Bunkerbound, visit the supplier’s website for further details.
Another fun idea is the egg cultivators from Jonny’s Sister.
These cute egglings look and feel like an egg, but crack their top and you will discover a garden ready to grow inside.
Cultivation is easy — just crack the top like a normal egg, water the inside and place in a bright spot such as a window-sill. Plants grow for up to five months in the eggling, after which they can be planted directly into the soil outside.
Each eggling comes with a terracotta tray and an extra seed pack to ensure success for all those beginner gardeners. Choose from a selection of basil, petunia or spicy red pepper, for more details visit the website.
