I have a few hanging pots in the balcony garden, they help make more of the space as you can see in the above picture. You hear a significant amount about the ones along the edge, those that in summer hold tomatoes and currently hold a mix of snapdragons, violas, pansies, lettuce, rocket, beets and a strange moss I am not too sure about.
Less often, but still on occasions I blog about the largest of the three hanging pots on the pole. This one currently holds a cornflower and some other supposedly blue flowers, but in the past has held tomatoes.
What I rarely post about are the two hanging succulents. They could be considered grandparents in this balcony garden as they were some of the original plants to be put in. I bought one, the donkey ear/tail/dragon-whatever it is called at the markets from my favourite succulent seller (he is actually the only one at the markets but he is awesome).
The other was a present from my old housemate, and it grows quite slowly. I love the various shades of green and purple.
So here is a post just for them, my two hanging old dears, who have survived high winds, forgetful watering and a complete lack of transplanting!
