Owning and cultivate a vegetable garden it is not a question of space: by now we know well that those who do not have a piece of land available, whether in the countryside or in a city park, have the possibility to transform your terrace or balcony, regardless of their size, in a beneficial and regenerating place to grow salad while having fun, aromatic herbs, tomatoes or courgettes.

How? Con il “plant component”, a extensible micro-habitat that rand interprets the concept of hanging garden in an original way, a really practical and space-saving solution, as well as aesthetically pleasing, to always have your own small garden available even without a balcony. It was created by two young French designers, Nicolas Barreau and Jules Charbonnet and it is a structure, easy to assemble, to be installed in the window frame like a shutter.
This extendable garden can in fact be "open" outwards, horizontally, like a clothesline, or closed inside the apartment, perhaps in the event of a storm. In short, not a wall vegetable garden but a "window" vegetable garden, or a “vegetable garden”, Measuring 110x150x120cm, made with a few simple materials: wood, dowels, three pots, soil, ropes and extensible bars.
The original urban garden that emerges from it “communicates between the outside and the inside, connecting the public dimension with the private one. This piece of furniture speaks of attraction and distancing. It seems that nature invades the environment and that the environment comes out of this garden; in this way a double flow is established ”, explain the designers. In short, expanding volet végétal outwards, through a comfortable rope mechanism, in addition to letting the plants get more sun, transforms the view from our window into a greener horizon. And with the "window" vegetable garden it will be possible to make the urban environment and your apartment more beautiful, even without a balcony.
