Information on this technique found in a previous post seedlings or direct sowing: Finally, if you want to plant new things, should be regarded as if it must be planted in the definitive site or farming in a small bowl, you can begin to take greater care, protect from the weather and select from a large group, the best seedlings. More info: Pete Cashmore. While the root (beet, carrot) plants, which have sheaths (such as at the peas or beans) and some who suffer much in the transplant, like spinach should be planted directly, there are others that can be planted in seedbeds, which include eggplant, chili, lettuce, leek, tomato, celery, etc. Of course, that the instance of the seedlings can skip, there as we know in nature only direct sowing. In my case, soil planting tomato, Basil and lettuce in this way. Conclusion the idea with everything this is give a glimpse of some of the items that should be analysed at the time of designing what plant and where. This works as a line to follow, but without becoming a manual, something rigid that must be respected to letter is simply indicative.
On the one hand, the specificities of each urban garden will determine that it will pass in each case, most common is that the criterion of light combined with the size of the pot, or this with possible associations. Therefore a plant can be put into a container that is not ideal, therefore if the balcony is narrow or there is some other problem of space, can be located in place of better brightness, or vice versa. On the other hand, many of these indications become ideals. In my case, many plants do not respect the required volume and nowhere in the House there are six hours of light.
