Hi David the Good,

I read your article here* about balcony growing for permaculture fans.
* http://thegrownetwork.com/balcony-gardening-big-food-production-in-a-small-space/

Based on the article, I plan to pot up some ginger and basil and lemon grass on my balcony. The question is do you think that basil will get along with the ginger and lemon grass in my 1 cubic foot planter pot?

Thank you,

Chris S.

That's a pretty small planter; however, the ginger will start small and the basil is likely to give you some yield as it gets pushed out by ginger and lemon grass. If possible, stack up some more space vertically with more planters. Or take one of my suggestions in today's post: http://www.thesurvivalgardener.com/gardening-indoors-for-survival/

There's almost always a solution. Lots of people will share land if you ask.

 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
