Like humans, plants face a whole range of additional stresses when trying to survive in a city environment, than they would in non city areas.
What makes plant growing difficult in inner city areas:
Consider first - is the plant going to tolerate inner city conditions. There's no point in planting something that will only struggle.
Just as important though -consider the location, and only use a plant that suits the situation. Some plants recommended here will thrive in the harsh inner city conditions; but can also be large and vigorous; and may damage pavements, pipes, buildings etc, if planted in situations where they don't have adequate room to grow.
