You eat. Pity the shoots and leaves come from an unknown source.
If you want to create a microallotment upon your modest windowsill, get a little help from The Balcony Gardener. The new online store sells ready-made container gardens (Edible, English Country, Contemporary Urban) for an instant blooming landscape. The planting has been done for you; you just have to help things flourish.
In addition to these genius offerings, the webshop has tools, furniture, vintage flower pots and a range of beautifully packaged seeds — all specifically suited to small outdoor spaces.
Sprinkle a few about and add water.
All it takes is comma sense.
