What to plant on my balcony

Posted by roxburgh17 vic (My Page) on

I have put some artificial grass down on our balcony which is 3mx 3m and am wanting to pot some plants to add some colour but am struggling to come up with what i could plant there?

I was thinking of either cordylines or impaitients.

Any help?

Preferably something that will last year round but am willing to listen to all ideas!

Which way does the balcony face and how much sun does it get during the day? That will determine what plants might do well there.

it faces a north west direction and tends to get morning and afternoon sun but shade in the late afternoon and evening.

since you are down under, you'll need to figure out approx your climate zone and tell us. otherwise we won't know what your climate conditions are like. not just hardiness zone. sunset zone is much more informative. they only have it for US, but you should be able to find smth similar to your conditions, at least approximately.
