Hey, there. I'm Oscar Carmona, owner of Healing Grounds, certified biodynamic nursery located in beautiful Santa Barbara, California. Here today to talk to you about how may plants can you put on a balcony? Now the possibilities are endless, it's not an exact number, it all depends on the size of the balcony and the conditions for growing there and what that might offer you. It also depends on the variety of plants you're interested in growing and how creative you can be in providing growing opportunities for your garden. So how much space do you need? Well, you need to consider what the plants are going to grow into and so you want to make sure that they have their space. And the neat thing about pots is they're modular, you can mix and match, you can turn these things around as they're growing to get them exposed in different ways, to get them to grow into a space that is their own and when you have different sized pots you create vertical space. Vertical space is that magical dimension that allows you to increase your growing capacity, where before you never thought possible, if you're just looking at a general basic patio floor plan or balcony floor plan. And you can do that in a number of ways you can do that with the pots themselves, you can do that with tables and floor and shelves, you can do that with hanging tapestry like growing environments that are really wonderful for especially growing leafy greens. So the answer to the question, how may plants can you grow on a balcony? That's the question that only you can answer, my friends. And that has to do with, you know again the amount of produce that you want to, to harvest and any given time and the extent to which you can let your imagination lead you to the potential of hanging baskets then tapestry gardens or shelf gardens along the walls. Remember always, feed the soil and let the plants feed you. Have a great day.
