Here in Switzerland where population is dense and most people live in apartments, the balcony and window ledge becomes the garden for most people. This is probably true for much of Europe, I would suspect, or least for the city-dwellers. So I am posting here a few photos of our little balcony garden, and invite you to share us photos of yours.
I have found that petunias, violas and pansys grow best inthe shady cool weather of Switzerland, and they bllom all summer until fall, which is a plus. I have also tried my hand at sunflowers, though the lack of sun plus their giant size can kind of take over...but they sure are pretty!
Happy balcony gardening!
