If your balcony is quite shady, choose shade-loving plants such as Chrysanthemums, Fuchsias and Farmers hydrangeas.
So, what kind of plants will suit balcony life?
Consider popping your houseplants out on your balcony over the summer.
The collection of succulents you’ve collected over the lockdown will love the heat this summer.
If you fancy growing your own fruit, why not try growing strawberries?
These can be easily grown in pots and hanging baskets. Balconies can be the perfect spot for them as they are less likely to be attacked by ground loving slugs and snails.
