The buzz of the new season and the warm weather it has (finally!) brought has us thinking of our little balcony garden - and ways to beef it up asap. Real Simple must have read our mind, as their tips on easily creating several varieties of container gardens is just what we were looking for...

The article offers instructions on planting and easily maintaining a potted herb, salad, or cutting garden. The advice is pretty straight-forward (even for this novice green-thumb) but the results seem perfect for the apartment-dwelling gardener who's short on space. Any tips you'd add from your own gardening experience?
