MADISON (WKOW) -- You can grow fruit even if you don't have a lot of space.
Melinda Myers suggest growing fruit on your patio, balcony, or other small spaces. You can grow strawberries as a groundcover. The white flowers, edible red fruit, and brilliant red fall color add sparkle to your landscape.
Grow them in a pot or hanging basket on your balcony or deck. They'll be close at hand and easy to harvest a few for your breakfast cereal or afternoon snack.
A dwarf self-pollinating apple can provide flowers in spring and tasty fruit to enjoy. Blueberries will benefit from the perfect soil in a container garden, while you enjoy the flowers, fruit, and fall color.
Select a weather-proof pot with drainage holes. Fill with a well-drained potting mix. Plant so the crown of your plant, in this case a fig, or root flare on a tree is at the soil surface. Water and set in a sunny place to grow.
