Remove plants from pots and gently tease out roots. Make a hole large enough in potting mix to accommodate plant’s root ball. Pot up and backfill with potting mix.
Carefully stack pots on top of each other, alternating their placement to ensure stack is secure and not squashing any plants.
Remember! It’s important to keep in mind the weight of your pots and plants. Collectively, they can become very heavy, making them difficult to move, plus they can weigh down your balcony. A good way to make them lighter is to opt for plastic, fibreglass or wooden pots. And, if the pots are large, you can also fill the bottom half with polystyrene chips to further reduce the weight.
When there’s no room left on the floor, it can literally drive you up the wall – with your pots, that is! A hanging pot always looks great on a balcony. Just make sure you use a bracket that juts out, so the pot doesn’t sit awkwardly. Plant it up with flowers, herbs or strawberries.
Use it all!
Take full advantage of what little space you have and plant in every nook and cranny – even along balcony rails. These fabulous pots are designed to sit over the railings. They come in a variety of bold colours, including lime green, sky blue, yellow, orange and fiery red, to brighten up your outdoors.
