My first balcony garden!
Okay, so two years ago I was renting a house and got really into the garden, (a total sty that I worked hard to fix up) but the homeowner had to sell the house so I had to move out. I spitefully gathered a bit of every single thing I had planted (plus some that had already been there) and put them in pots and left them at my mom's house for a year. This year I moved into an apartment with an east-facing balcony, so I brought the pots here and that is what you see below. I am really excited to have them here and be able to watch them grow finally. I took pictures this week so I could compare before and after when they all fill in.
A few of the plants I have are:
various succulents (any that will grow outdoors here)
two kinds of mint
flowering plum tree
deodar cedar tree
scotch broom (a really neat one with very light yellow flowers)
geranium (I think) with very good-smelling leaves
various groundcover and small flowers
Behold my ghetto pot-holders! Made from "wire storage cubes" and very secure with numerous 75lb zip ties.
I'm proud of this hanging basket, it turned out nice.
I do not know what kind of vine is in the big pot, it was mislabeled. I hope it gets big and leafy. (The corner is a bit sad at the moment.) It's in bright shade, mostly. Do mystery vines do well in bright shade?
I'll post more pictures as everything grows.
