As I mentioned a few posts ago, one of my birthday presents was a Pimp My Balcony voucher from my friends.
I usually start sowing herb seeds in March and buy plants around May. Then everything’s ready for me to either watch grow or enjoy looking at. This year, however, I was a little lethargic. Since I’m friends with a veritable Gardening Queen, I felt for the first time that I’d need to think this planting thing through. In previous years I just bought what looked nice, with total disregard of the respective plant’s maintenance requirements. If it survived – great. If not – buy another one.
So I was especially happy about this present, and had a great time at the garden center last week choosing the plants. With four people helping it only took about two hours until everything was done. And here are the results.
