Merry month of May will be back soon! Everything is flourishing and thriving. Gorgeous! Now is finally time for the coffee in the open air, for the favorite reading in the park or the romantic evening on the balcony … Speaking of the balcony, that’s what it’s about here today. How can you turn your own balcony into a beautiful haven of peace that you can enjoy every day and every evening? Of course, different factors play an important role here – the size of the balcony, the orientation, the time you can invest in plant care, etc. But here we would like to focus only on the balcony plants concentrate yourself. Which are the right plants for your balcony? And only on the basis of the lighting conditions that prevail there.
Of course, the list of individual flowers, plants and herbs is very long and extensive, so we will only list our favorites. We have generally chosen three groups – plants for the sunny, for the partially shaded and for the shady balcony.
The suitable plants for the sunny balcony:
Bald trillflower ( Bougainvillea glabra )
Millions Bells (Calibrachoa)
oleander (Nerium oleander)
Portulaca grandiflora (Portulaca grandflora)
For the sunny balcony we also recommend strawberries and tomatoes, fat hen and geranium as well as herbs like lavender , Sage, rosemary and thyme. Of course you should pay attention to irrigate all these plants and only water in the morning or in the evening.
The right plants for the semi-shady balcony:
verbena (Verbena Cultivars)
nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus)
Männertreu (including Lobelia erinus)
In addition, you can also very well grow other suitable plants here such. B. ivy, boxwood and hydrangeas , These love it rather quiet and shady and are therefore not recommended for sunny balconies. Basically, the balcony plants for the partially shaded areas are easy to maintain and often even hardy.
The suitable plants for the shady balcony:
Edel Lies (Impatiens New Guinea)
crying heart (Lamprocapnos spectabilis)
Salvia splendens (Salvia splendens)
Of course, all these balcony plants are also suitable for your garden and are relatively easy to maintain.
In plants, however, as with all other living things, the rule of thumb is: show love and affection! Take care of your flowers, plants and herbs and they will thank you.
With that in mind, have fun and stay relaxed!
