Inspiring Summer Balcony Decorating Ideas With Some Garden Plants 01

One of the downfalls of living in a big city is the lack of outdoor space. Londoners are privileged to have as many big parks throughout the urban metropolis as they do, but what about personal outdoor space, like a little back garden in which to grow vegetables? That can be much more difficult to come across, unfortunately.

Balcony gardens don't only have to be about veg and flowers, you can build butterfly houses, hang beautiful light fixtures, or set up a little sitting area to have a cup of tea. The idea is to create a beautiful hub filled with fresh, living and colorful things to add an element of self-sufficiency and home-grown resourcefulness to your life which is otherwise, fast-paced, imported and processed.

Salad leaves and herbs are the easiest vegetables to grow because all they require is a shallow box on a bright windowsill. For best results try growing rocket, radishes, runner beans, and /or tomatoes. Windowsill lettuce beds can be made out of ice cream tubs with holes in the bottom. There is no shortage of information available in books and online if starting a balcony garden is something of real interest. Taking a trip to your local nursery and talking to one of the experts there would also be really helpful.
