Dear GerryWe have a new property in South-West France (Biarritz) which has two large concrete Jardinieres on the balcony. they have already been lined and filled with compost by the development’s landscapers. We expect to spend a week or so every couple of months there. Would you please have any suggestions how we could plant up and maintain these containers in a way that they will survive from visit to visit?
With regular, reliable watering, you can grow a wide range of plants to your choice, limited only by the size of the containers .. it might be possible to grow olive trees, citrus etc. or smaller plants, such as lantana, oleander, jasmine or pelargoniums or a choice of these and others.
