Take advantage of vertical spaces
Surely you have an empty space in your kitchen where you can set up a vertical urban garden: for example with glass jars to hang which will not only look nice but will also allow you to have your essential aromatic plants at hand.
Includes a grow table for decoration
Growing tables have been gradually incorporated into homes as a method of entertainment, decoration and saving. It is possible to have urban gardens without sunlight, but it will always be much better if we could install it near some point where there is a lot of natural light (save energy and make the development process faster).
Improvise a garden on your window or counter
You can put a small garden by a window in the kitchen just by adding a shelf that supports it. You can also take advantage of the countertop spaces that receive more light. It will be enough to plant aromatic herbs in small pots or planters that will give your kitchen a vegetable touch and can also be used to flavor rich and healthy dishes.
Grow small varieties
All horticultural crops have many varieties, and this will allow you to have different types of fruit, color, flavor, shape, and size. In such a way your kitchen will look beautiful and natural.
