Hi all! Balcony garden, complete beginner!
First of all it is fantastic to meet you all. We moved into a lovely flat with a gorgeous sizeable balcony in the summer and I would like to have a lovely little balcony garden all ready for next summer! Problem is, I am a complete beginner!
When we first moved in I got some seedlings to come up and out of all of them I have a nice little rosemary plant and a basil plant come up, but I almost killed a new little lavender bush (How, I have no idea) and had to cut it right down, thank goodness it's got some little bits of growth and seems to be on the mend.
The balcony gets a lot of sunlight but is quite exposed to the elements, especially wind. I would like to have a garden that both looks nice but I really want to grow herbs and things like peppers and tomatoes since I love cooking. I love wildflowers like cornflowers and sweetpeas as well. I also just want to plant some of your average pretty flowers of course!
What would you guys suggest? I want to get some planning done ready for planting during the winter, are there any calenders available?
Again, thank you very much guys and I really look forward to talking to some of you!
