Allison Bailey asked 13 years ago
Hi Gerry, I am very new to this and would like to know what would be the best plants to buy for my balcony? I would like some plants that dont need much care and attention.

Plants that tolerate wind and being grown in a pot are needed. Try phormium, viburnum, cistus, pampas grass, lonicera, olearia and eleagnus. Bedding flowers, such as petunias and geraniums can be good in summer but need watering.

Set up an inexpensive automatic watering system if you cannot get around to watering regularly.
