Bring In Some Greenery
Herbs are a small and cost-effective way of sprucing up your balcony that also allows you to enjoy the fresh aromatic pickings. Rosemary, thyme, chives and sage thrive in the sun, whereas dill, parsley and mint will grow better on a shaded winter-garden style balcony. Certain houseplants like cacti and aloe vera will relish in the heat and brightness of a sunny balcony, so why not give them a little summer holiday? Hook holders allow you to hang plants along your balcony rail, giving you a bit of privacy. Plant strawberries in late July to mid-August for a late summer treat! Get creative as you can with your plants as they are a great way to escape city life.
At Folio we are running competitions throughout the coming weeks to help with isolation boredom. The lucky winners will receive £50 Patch Plants Vouchers, so stay tuned!
Light It Up
Lanterns provide great night time lighting for your balcony and look great on the floor or on a table-top. String lights and fairy lights can be tied around your balcony rail or trellis. Why not add a bamboo screen for added style? Mix it up or stick to the same aesthetic as your furnishings. The possibilities are endle
