Copenhagen, Denmark.

Hi there.
My name is Jesper, and I live in the center of Copenhagen. My balcony is a very small one on the 4th. floor, facing South-West. The building has been build in a u-shape around a little garden. And up there on the red brick wall in between the leaves of a Boston Ivy, I have my own little balcony, that I'm slowly trying to turn into a little oasis of it's own. -Whith loads of difficulties though! In mid summer there is no wind on the balcony, and lots of sun, so the temperatures out there, can become quite Mediteranian. In the winter however, it get's rather cold, and spring brings many nights of bare frost in these parts. The first couple of years most things would die as soon as they went in the pots.
But finally I've started discovering how it works, and found some plants, that will actually grow there without me killing them, because I ran off to a caf or hit the beach rather than running home to water, or because I don't want to wrap up every single pot in blankets and plastic for the winter. Now my balcony looks a lot better, though not nearly as great as some of the ones I find on this site. Some of you are REALLY good. I simply cannot wait to watch the results on some of the tips I'm getting in here.

I live in: United States

My zone is: z7 copenhagen
