I was just reading an article in "Kitchen Garden", called Food Among the High Rise. Its a group of London flat owners etc who have no space and have created a sort of club for growing food and flowers in very tight spaces. Impressive !!

I had a front garden that size some years ago, got half a day's sun, but the wall dividing it from the street blocked the sunlight. I gave up, crazy paved the area, left a space by the front door for a climber, used an old water tank from the loft on top of the paving, filled with soil, and planted flowering things in that. Result - looked tidy, room for the dustbin, always something nice to look at. Just a thought - depends whether you can get a water tank though! But large containers would do just as well.
