Here nearly everyone has window boxes hanging from their balconies. So years ago when I came back to Switzerland I decided to do the same. Then we had a ground floor flat with a patio and I got some of those large grey plastic boxes and put holes in the bottom and planted dahlias, tall marigolds and anything else I could lay my hands on and placed them around the edge of the patio. It just went on from there, first house, first garden, flowers, then veg, ad infinitum.
Fact is, I just like to get my hands dirty!
