Plants for balconies

There are plenty of ways to make the most of a small gardening footprint, even if you’re limited to containers on a city balcony or patio. Our pick of the best plants for balconies include a mix of flowers, fruit, herbs, Japanese maples and architectural grasses to help create your own mini Eden. Small climbers such as jasmine can work well with a simple support and bulbs in pots help bring seasonal cheer. Always check how much weight your balcony can take, keeping in mind that terracotta and concrete pots can be heavy, especially when planted up. Also, consider whether your balcony is sheltered or exposed. If it gets lashed with wind, rain, sleet and snow, create some shelter and windbreaks, or choose resilient hardy plants that will stand up to the elements – plants suitable for coastal gardens work well. Finally, consider how many sunlight hours your balcony receives each day and choose plants for full sun or plants for shade to suit.
