The best plants for your vertical garden

Vertical gardens are made up of individual pots, so it's really up to you what type of plants you choose. Herbs work great, as do potted annuals, if your balcony gets a lot of shade, ferns could work here too. Visit the nursery at your local Bunnings if you'd like some advice on which plants will work best on your balcony.

Create your own oasis with pots and plants

Another way to turn your balcony into a welcoming space is with potted plants of various sizes, colours and styles, providing your balcony has somewhere for the water to drain. Another added benefit of potting your plants is that you can take them with you wherever you go.

Take a seat

Last but not least, add some outdoor furniture to complete your look. A comfy chair and a small table can help create the ideal urban balcony garden.
