Hello World! Welcome Friends! A balcony is a great addition to one’s home. However, without something to spice up its appearance, it will quickly become just another bare space in one’s residence.
The placement of potted plants is one of the best ways to improve the appearance of the balcony. But because there are many plants that can be raised in pots, the selection process can quickly become confusing. Read this rundown of the best potted plants for the balcony garden and boost your balcony’s appearance in as little as a few days.
This perennial features frothy flowers which arch over foliage during the early part of the summer. Its leaves come in a myriad of shades ranging from peach to deep burgundy. Best placed in a part of the balcony that does not get a lot of sun.
The begonia is a hardy, showy, and versatile plant that does not like to get too wet. It features leaves that come in different shapes, as well as flowers that come in different colors ranging from white to bright orange. This plant is best placed in a hanging basket, but can also be placed in a mixed container. Like the aforementioned plant, the begonia is best placed in a part of the balcony that does not get a lot of sunlight.
Also known as summer snapdragon, this delicate, yet heat-tolerant plant need not be deadheaded to ensure that they bloom throughout the season. Variants come in pink, mauve, deep purple, purple-blue, white, and many more colors. Best planted along with trailing herbs and exposed to the sun.
This drought-tolerant plant, which comes in mounded, upright, and trailing varieties, is a great option for the balcony since it comes in many different colors. It also features flowers that attract bees, hummingbirds, and butterflies of different shades. Some varieties need full sunlight exposure, while others can survive under the shade.
Don’t let this plant’s frail appearance fool you; it is completely capable of surviving in a wide variety of conditions to add more beauty to your balcony. Best exposed to partial sunlight, but can thrive even under full sunlight exposure.
This bushy plant is an amazing addition to the balcony due to its long-lasting color, distinct texture, and showy fruit. The fruits come in dark shades and, though edible, are super hot. Thus, they are best kept away from spots that children and pets can reach. Those hard-to-reach spots should also be those that get a lot of sunlight.
The plant features perky, long-lasting little flowers that come in numerous bright shades including yellow, orange, white, pink, and purple. These flowers appear in winter when in places with milder climate, but is generally considered as an annual. Best placed in an area that gets some shade, although it can thrive under bright sunlight.
The plants mentioned above are just some of the best plants for a balcony container garden. Like other garden plants, they can be costly to maintain, so make sure that, before you even begin, you already have money-saving measures in place. One good money-saving measure you can employ in your homes is the installation of Rain Water Tanks. But before you even begin looking for one, make sure to check if rainwater harvesting systems are illegal in your place or not.
