I live in Belgium in a app 2 floors up. My balcony is 1 x 4.5 mtrs and south facing.
I have Mini bell and Gardeners delight in fruit and Moneymaker and Sungold in flower.
These are grown in pots dia 25 cm by 27 cm high. old cut flower pots from a local supermarket. I tried to plant early in a propagator but all 3 plantings failed as I could get them to germinate but they just went so leggy then died. In the end I just planted 2 seeds in each pot and covered with a plastic bag and put them on the balcony. Topping up water from the tray under the pot so it sat in a small amount off water. now I have some nice plants. My cucumbers grew well like this 2.
I have started to feed them a tomato feed bi weekly so lets hope I get lots off fruit.
If anybody has any advice about growing in pots then plz do give it. I have always gardened on the land this is my first yr growing in pots troughs etc.
