Balcony Garden in Barcelona
G'day people !
I'm a complete novice to cultivating anything green and plantlike, hoping some of you might be able to help me out with a few ideas !
I've just moved into an attic aparment in Barcelona. It's on a SW facing corner and has a two metre wide balcony going all the way round, so it gets the sun the whole day round. It's crying out for some greenery and plants. Some flowers would be cool too. I want to concentrate on the west facing side which is in the sun from around midday through to sunset.
I'm thinking of some pot plants and pot 'trees' (can you say that?!) to go on the edge of the balcony, and some hanging baskets to go on the walls. Ideally I'm after stuff that is pretty easy to look after, and doesn't need much more than basic watering. Because of the amount of sun and the fact that temperartures can get quite high, i guess i'm gonna need something quite hardy.
Can anyone gice me any recommendations on some plants to go for ?? (And if you happen to know the spanish name for them as well, even better ;) !!)
