In times when we spend more time at home and want to experiment with what we can grow, what better time than now to try growing some herbs and edibles on your balcony or roof terrace. High-rise buildings wouldn’t be the first place someone might think of growing food to eat. But this year I decided to give it a try and have had some pretty interesting results so far.
There is no better time to get planting to achieve those big splashes of colour that you get from garden perennials. With some simple choices and low cost, your London garden, however small, can look as good as any English garden around.
The seasonal plants we use for pots, containers, balcony planters and window boxes. are called bedding plants. Bedding plants are usually grown under glass at nurseries and sold to fill garden borders, pots and containers with seasonal colour.
Having an apartment with a balcony in London is a luxury any time. But right now, during lockdown, for someone who has no idea about plants or gardening, how do you begin the process of making it a green oasis where you can enjoy spending time?
