Veg and the City

A plant pot, some sunlight and a bit of effort is all you need to start gardening in the city. And at "VEG and the City" it’s possible to find everything an urban gardener’s heart may desire.


Urban corn salad

The city slickers who grow their own: Rather than buying your lettuce at the supermarket around the corner, why not just pick the fresh vegetables you grew on your balcony? Or if you’re enjoying the sunshine on the roof terrace with your friends, why not spice up your drink with a few leaves of home-grown lemon balm? Do you like the sound of it – but you’re afraid your fingers aren’t quite green enough? Then "VEG and the City" is the right place for you. With courses, tips, blogs, utensils and first-rate advice, learn all about the art of gardening in no time at all. And even if you’re an old hand at gardening, there’s always more to learn.


You don’t need a conventional garden bed to cultivate edible produce. Actually, growing your own plants is possible in almost any location. Therefore, "VEG and the City" has also specialized in "foodscaping": the creation of an urban garden that provides food for both people and bees (and other important insects). On request, the foodscapers will also do the planting for you – from the 3 m2 balcony through to larger fruit and vegetable gardens for shops and offices. Have a more relaxing time in your urban oasis. Happy urban gardening!
