If you’re keen on having a garden but a little worried about finding time for watering and planting, we’re right with you. With a little help from cut flowers, textiles and artiificial plants you can make a green space that’s fertilizer free and can be made quicker than you can say “lets have a balcony garden party”.
An easy way to start off your gardening free garden is by using cut flowers to add freshness and greenery. We like to group them together in clear vases to make a simple flower garden that’s big on decoration and low on upkeep.
When your flowers start to wither, cut the tops off and let them float in a bowl of water. They’ll perk up again and you’ll get a colourful decoration too.
These days plastic plants look pretty close to the real thing and by putting them in pots and wrapping them around balcony railings they look almost identical.
You could also combine your balcony greenery with some outdoor lights for an atmospheric green entertaining area. These SOLVINDEN lights let you do both at the same time.
Greenery is one way to cover up a bare corner. A cosier way is to use textiles. Organic colours and plant patterns can still give you the natural look you’re going for as well as warm up an outdoor area.
