Standing, hanging, climbing, large, small, single or multi-colored, there is a large selection of suitable flowers for every terrace and balcony.
Balcony flower tips
Place balcony flowers
The ideal time to plant balcony flowers is after the annual ice saints in May. Up until this date, night frosts keep coming back and damaging the flowers. If you can’t wait to set the first colors, you should choose pansies, horned violets or spring flowers such as tulips, daffodils, primroses or hyacinths.
Choice of plants
Choosing the right plants is crucial. So that you can really enjoy your planting for a long time, you should consider the following factors:
- SPACE RATIO
How much space do you have available? Would you like to plant window boxes, hanging vessels or flower pots standing on the floor?
- LIGHT RATIO
In which direction is your terrace / balcony oriented? Shady, sunny or rather hot?
- COLORFUL OR GREEN
Do you primarily want colorful, flowering plants or do you prefer evergreen plants? Maybe a mixture of both?
- WHICH VARIETIES
Old or New Breeds? In the last few decades, the breeding of balcony flowers has made rapid progress. The new varieties of balcony flowers are usually more blooming and healthier than older varieties.
- MAINTENANCE EFFORT
How much time would you like to spend looking after your balcony flowers? Balcony flowers should be fertilized, cleaned, cut and watered regularly.
Since a very limited root space is available in flower boxes and tubs, the quality of the soil is particularly important. Features of good potting soil are:
- High nutrient content
- Loose texture
- Stable structure
- Rapid water absorption
- Good water storage
Different plants require different amounts of water and the location also has a great influence on the amount of water required. Generally valid tips for correct irrigation are:
It is better to water the balcony plants once a day and enough for that. The roots can really soak up.
Early morning or late evening are ideal times to water. The water does not evaporate unused and can be easily absorbed by the plants.
- AMOUNT OF WATER
The plants should be watered until the whole balcony box is well soaked. Avoid waterlogging by all means! If the water cannot drain away, the roots die and the plant is no longer supplied with sufficient nutrients and water and begins to wither.
