Need suggestions for container planting
I recently moved to Minot, ND into a condominium with an east-facing balcony roughly 4ft x 8ft. It is very windy. I would like to put some plants out there in containers that can stay out all year. Everything I have read online says containers plants need to be hardy to two zones lower than plants out in the ground. I want these plants for privacy. I don't want to take up the entire balcony with winter-hardy plants - I would like to put in some lettuces, cherry tomatoes, herbs and flowers in the summer. Can anyone give me an idea on what I should plant? Thanks.
