Balcony railing pots

Posted: 25/09/2012 at 19:24
The saddle planters I have bought wont fit securely and it gets quite windy up here. A hanging basket with a flat side is the sort of thing I am after yeah. Just wondered if there was a bespoke product like it.

Hey everybody. Not sure this is in the right place but I'm looking for some sort of pot to hang from my balcony hand rail. Want to use them to grow tumbling tomatoes. Any links to suitable products would be fantastic!

What's the strangest thing you have ever grown in a pot?

Don't mind the thorns too much. Are there any white flowering roses that would work for me?

Haha, I can see why that would be confusing if it had the little green fruits on.

Hello, I would like to grow my first rose, scent is quite important, it is a shaded spot, it will have to be grown in a pot as all I have is a balcony and I have a nice iron obelisk I would like it to grow up which is 150cm high . Hope that's not too demanding....... would really appreciate some ideas. Thanks guys.

I think the best thing you can do is read as much as time allows about veg growing. Then spend a year trying different things. Try anything you would like to eat. That really is the best way to learn in my opinion, trial and error. Herbs are always a good place to start though.

Haha Alina, hi petal, I have seen those boxes on the railings yes, struggling to find something for the rail of my balcony really, don't really like the ones that sit on top (usually in bright colours) trying to find some to hang on the inside of the railing. I currently have growing Thyme, parsley, 3 different types of salad leaves, a blueberry bush, a patio apple tree, strawberrys, pine berry and even an olive tree. I've done broad beans, peas, beetroot, courgettes and chillies this year with varied success. We get from about 3 hours direct 'sun' in winter to 6 hours in summer. I'd like to make as much use of the space as possible with mainly edible/useful plants. Any ideas/products would be greatly appreciated.

What's the strangest thing you have grown in a pot, wether it is a strange/rare variety or just a strange thing to grow in a pot that you had success with. Hoping you guys will give me some good ideas for my balcony too!

I quite like Marshalls. Have a good catalogue and website too. Never had a problem with them.
