9 Practical Ideas for Beautiful Balcony Gardens

A year ago, I moved from my home in Lahore and settled in Toronto. Aside from the cultural changes that I had to embrace, one major challenge as a gardener was to start my gardening hobby afresh in a very different climate. It is a big change – from a 600 sq. feet rooftop garden to a small 36 sq. feet balcony garden space.

I did not add much to my small balcony garden yet, but I have started planning it. Here are a few ideas for my balcony garden.
