How To Grow Your Very Own Edible Home Garden In Singapore

06 January 2021

Eat the fruits of your labour. 

It’s a romantic ideal, to be able to grow your own produce so that you can know exactly what you’re putting into your body, but with many urban farming kits available on the market growing your own edible home garden in Singapore is becoming a reality for homeowners.

From growing Thai basil leaves to cherry tomatoes, having your own edible home garden is a great way to introduce some greenery into your Singapore home, teach children about plant life cycles and save some money with fresh vegetables on demand.

A basic starter kit involves a few pots or a planter box, seeds and soil. It sounds simple enough, but inexperienced or first-time gardeners often worry about their lack of a green thumb.

But Ms. Cynthea Lam, founder of urban-gardening company Super Farmers, says that most of her clients give up after just one failed attempt.

Her advice? “The key is to try again. Keep experimenting until you get it right. Plants are hardy living things and wish to survive as much as we do. Before you start on any project, do some basic research online, read up on what is needed or watch some videos to get inspired.”
