"Although i'm not at all in the designated 'contest area,' i'd like to share with you my 'mini-balcony-garden'. In fact, my balcony is only 1 foot and 8 inches deep, and 10 feet 6 inches wide. It has a slightly oval shape. I managed to find narrow, foldable wooden chairs (i've bought two) and a fold-up table at IKEA....." [more below]

Already two of my neighbours asked me where i've found the furniture as everybody has the same problem with these small balconies.

I have two boxes of strawberries, two roses, some lavender and three small hanging pots where i change frequently the type of flowers. In another box i'm growing small sunflowers from seeds.

My favourite resources for plants and boxes are DIY markets (here in Switzerland : Jumbo or Hornbach ), concerning furniture and accessories i go to IKEA or Interio.

Enjoy the pics! Janine
