So you can plant the balcony and take the light there into account

Not all people can enjoy a lot of green in their own home. Not all of them have the opportunity and the space to allow individual green cascades and perhaps also bushes and trees to flourish.

But if you have the option of planting your balcony, then by all means do so.

Do not be put off by possible restrictions and narrow spaces. You can always make something out of it. Thank goodness, balcony planting can serve many different purposes.

You can put the plants in, maybe to use them as decoration. Or you can create a vertical garden that will also give a lot of fruit over time.

We have discussed this topic several times. Today we prefer to talk more about how you should deal with plants on balconies with regard to the light.

Plant shady balconies

Do you have little light on your terrace? Do not despair! This is absolutely not a problem if you choose the right method of planting. We have three specific proposals for you today. Begonias are a very successful choice in this case. You can plant them in small containers and place them on window sills and balcony scaffolding.

Balsaminas are also a very popular solution

They can withstand shadows, but they must be protected from wind and cold.

Camellias can also be used in shady gardens

However, you would need to keep the ventilation and moisture around them.

Plant a sunny balcony

Now let’s talk about the contrast. Many plants do not love excessive light. You have to choose appropriate types so that they can be there to enjoy in the long run.

The first suggestion that we think you should consider is the geraniums

You can attach these to the grilles of the balcony or in small containers and pots there as well.

Petunias are also a very good choice when it comes to planting from a sunny balcony

But in this case they definitely need to be protected from the draft.

Perhaps you want to plant tulips on your sunny balcony?

Also consider the roses

If you plant these wonderfully fragrant flowers on your balcony, you will also be able to combine many different nuances. Good tip is to combine these all and let them bloom at different times. For the winter you should have some evergreen bushes ready.

Terraces with sun and shade

Sometimes you also have to plant balconies that are partially exposed and partially shaded. There are also very good options for these special cases.

In the first place it’s about the hydrangeas

However, you have to protect them from the strongest sun and excessive drafts of air.

Fuchsias are also a very popular choice in such situations

They can be positioned in rows on different levels of the verandas.

Laurel is our absolute favorite choice for balcony planting this season
