Washington DC Balacony
I have been posting on the pepper forum and the container forum for about a month. I have a 6' x 28' west facing balcony on a major street in Washington DC. The first few years I grew everything - Crepe Myrtle, Japanese Maple, Peppers, Herbs, Jasmine, bourgonvilla, Zinnias, etc. All was fine for about 5 years. Then the pests found me. The previous owner had never grown anything. Spider Mites got my trees and I've been fighting white flys and aphids ever since.
I've been reading all the posts here and most seem to be dealing with lack of light. I have full sun from 1:00 to sunset on the hottest days of the year.
Would love to hear about dealing with pests, watering (no water source outside) etc.
love the info and hope i can share some.
