In the summer, or as winter winds down, it’s time to think about evergreen plants for balconies. Many plants can survive even in temperatures as low as 4 degrees Fahrenheit and some even in full winter sun. If you live in a place where midday temperatures rarely reach below freezing for more than a few minutes, then you probably want to plant some evergreen vines in your balcony.
The first thing that you need to consider when choosing plants for balconies is where they are to be placed. Different plants need different amounts of sunlight and what they need during the day may not match what they need at night. Even some plants, such as evergreen holly and spirea, will grow well at night if they are placed in partial shade. However, they will most likely die during the morning hours or at the start of the cold season if exposed to full sunlight.
Another consideration is the amount of wind that the balcony receives. Most plants require direct sunlight. If the balcony is covered with some sort of glass, some of them may not need any sunlight at all. If the balcony is made from concrete, then all of them need at least some sun to survive. If you’re planning on placing plants directly on top of concrete blocks, you may want to consider using some sort of low-powered or electric hosing to protect the plants from the elements. Most balcony lights are designed to be strong enough to support even the largest trees.
After you’ve considered all of the variables, it’s time to choose what kind of plants to use for your balcony garden. Since you want the plants to be as evergreen as possible, you’ll need to choose plants that don’t need a lot of care to survive. This may mean trimming some of them back, especially if they are going to be used around an open window.
However, trimming back some plants may not be enough to keep them alive in your apartment. You may need to introduce some plants to your apartment building balcony. Evergreens are an excellent choice for apartment balcony gardens. They require very little maintenance and can handle temperatures from just about any season. Some plants also grow well in shallow water, while other plants, such as bamboo, don’t do well in that situation.
It’s important to note that your balcony evergreen plants should only be placed in the place where they will have the most drainage. If your balcony has a lot of water collecting, then you may not have as much choice. On the other hand, if there is very little water collection, then you can put almost any kind of evergreen plant in your balcony. Some plants will do better than others in this situation, however.
Now that you know what balcony evergreen plants are best for your apartment, it’s time to decide what plants you want to put in your apartment balcony. There are literally hundreds of plants you can choose from for your balcony. Some plants are going to be more practical than others, though. For instance, if you have very expensive plants and flowers that you really want to show off on your balcony, you should consider bringing those plants inside your apartment.
Other plants are going to be better for the balcony, no matter what type of balcony you have. However, if you have limited space and you are trying to make your balcony look more attractive to prospective tenants, then using apartment building plants is a great idea. However, before you get started, you should probably do a little research and find out which plants will do the best in your area. Since plants can do much to alter the look of your balcony, you may want to take this into consideration. With so many choices out there for balcony evergreen plants, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding something that will work in your apartment.
