Long time no see!
Spring is here. Let’s get down and dirty, guys.
The long forgotten balcony time is just around the corner.
Let’s get ready, make that private jungle of yours pop.
Lush. It. Up.
While I’m absolutely sure you have the best taste in choosing plants for your heavenly balcony jungle, I want to save you some time with a 3 easy arrangement clues.
Almost too easy.
Clue No1: HEIGHT
When you’re choosing the right plants, mind the fact that plants keep growing, so don’t forget to check their growth height on the label.
Which leads us to the next clue, that is…
Clue No2: SHAPE
Think of the final composition shape that you are going for.
The Mountain / plunge / mountain-to-the-plunge.

Clue No3: ORIENTATION
Check the orientation of your balcony and mind the amount of sunshine which it gets. Choose your plants accordinly.
Jeeez that was easy, wasn’t it??
So, you just need to have a vision for your balcony garden’s final shape and always always check plant labels.
Wanna see what it all looks like in my head??? Hop in!
I see myself as a very moderate gardener and I’m only capable of mainating a few not plants that hopefully don’t require a lot attention. So I always try to few plants that really pop and try to keep them well and alive.
What about you? Are you a garden geek? Or are only able to keep a few plants alive as I am?
