Gardening on a balcony is a necessity for some, especially if you live in a more urban environment like a city or downtown area.
Some people with this kind of environment might believe that gardening is lost to them. However, this is far from the truth!
You will have to use container gardening that can be just as fulfilling as gardening in customary conditions. If you want to create a lovely balcony garden, follow some simple steps.
First, be sure to use soil high in organic material and even add some compost to the mix to help the soil be as good as possible. Divide the space you have is to layer plants in the same container that grow at different times of the year. This way, you get many plantings done at once, and you will reap the benefits of this all year long. You will also want to fertilize these containers once a month to boost production and encourage growth and development in the plant or flower. Allow the plants to get the proper amount of sunlight. Too much can cause the plants to wilt or die, and too little can stunt their growth. Before planting, study how much sun the area gets and make sure you have a proper setup for the plants and flowers you plant to add to the balcony. If you use pots, make sure to place them close together. It will take less time to water and give the plants a sense of companionship. In hot climates, make sure to water several times a day, so the soil doesn't become dry. Plant flowers and plants that will attract bees and butterflies to help with each garden inhabitant's pollination. Herbs are also a great addition and vegetables as you will be able to make delicious gourmet dinners with these! Try your hand at balcony gardening if that is all the area you have. These tips work well for those with more miniature landscapes and patios.
Daffodils are perfect for container gardening.
