Hi EssenceofDittany

I’m interested in this too. My daughter’s only got a balcony and doesn’t know what to put there. Her’s is a bit windy as she’s on the 6th floor. This summer will be the first time in the flat (she’s not so interested in fruit but I think she might give strawberries a go in a hanging basket).

I suppose anything that you can grow in a container will grow on a balcony. Peas and beans would be ideal if she uses a wigwam support. Or tomatoes in grow bags perhaps? Potatoes in planters maybe but she’d have to water them lots…

Hopefully other gardeners will give us some hints!

growing fruit/veg on a small balcony.

I have a small balcony off my kitchen, it is south facing and protected from wind.

Any ideas what fruit or veg I could grow out on it?
