Hi all, I live in London UK, where it is pretty cold and I love plants
but unfortunately I only have a balcony to work with...it faces west, I
would like to have some advice on evergreen plants and trees to put
there, something that may give a bit of green through winter, I like the
feeling of a little wild garden, like a woodland maybe....I am looking
forward to your advice, thank you!!
The problem with balcony gardens is desiccation from wind and low humidity and in
winter the effect of freeze, thaw cycles on the roots of the plant in a
breaks them. I have a young friend who has to replace her balcony plants every
spring (zone 5). Look for plants adapted to high mountains and the tundra.
