If you’re lucky enough to have a balcony on your property, brightening it up with plants is a wonderful way to enjoy the beauty of nature and add a touch of individuality to your home.
From a modest window box to a sky-high smallholding, balcony gardening can be as simple or involved as you want it to be. With so many of us embracing gardening during lockdown, gardening in small spaces has grown in popularity and there is an abundance of support and advice available from gardening experts across the country.
Much of the success of your balcony garden depends on the position of your balcony and its layout. A balcony without much natural light limits the type of plants you can grow. Similarly, a balcony garden that’s exposed to strong winds can be difficult to manage. Fortunately, there are ways of coping with geography. Installing a balcony made with glass balustrades is one such solution.
