Grape, Pea and Mustard

There is no reason why you can’t container grow a grapevine on a balcony. Grapes (Vitis vinifera) love to be grown with hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) and a small amount of mustard greens and peas. The required trellis could make a lovely privacy screen on which to grow grapes and peas. As you remember, edible peas have no tolerance whatsoever for the summer heat so their spent vines will have to be carefully removed later. Please note that edible peas are not botanically related to flowering peas or sweet peas. Although gorgeous, flowering peas (Lathyrus odoratus) can not be substituted as a companion in place of edible peas (Pisum sativum).

    Thanks for writing this. I really feel as though I know so much more about this than I did before. Your blog really brought some things to light that I never would have thought about before reading it. You should continue this, Im sure most people would agree youve got a gift.

    • It makes me very happy to read comments such as yours. I am glad and relieved that it is found relevant to someone. Bio diveristy can be as simple or as complicated as we choose to make it. I believe if I keep it simple in this blog anyone can accomplish a healthy, bio diverse garden that is highly productive and contributes enormously to the health of the environment at large. No one needs to have garden space to do it either. The same principles can be applied to window sill and balcony container gardens as well. I have already composed many posts for the future of this blog and can easily see myself continuing it indefinitely. Thanks for your interest, encouragement, and compliment.
