I have recently moved into my first flat with a balcony (yay!) and I am looking to get some colour in there for the spring/summer months, they would need to be annual as opposed to perennial as I may not be able to take them with me if I move. Our flat gets direct sunlight up until about 2pm daily.
The space I have isnt huge, and I will probably invest in some 3ft-ish long rectangular plant pots to go aling the front of the balcony as I think this would probably make the best use of the space.
I absolutely love colour, and will probably go for pansies/cosmos to start my balcony colour collection. But I would really love some advice on what other flowers there are that are relavely short in terms of height but really colourful/unusual shapes that would be easy to care for and last until around september?
I apologise if I am explaining this in really basic terms, I am really keen to deck my balcony out in colour, but there are so many varieties of flowers/plants out there that I'm a little afraid I'll buy some and they'll die in the first month because they're not the right type!
any advice would be really really appreciated
