Balcony Gardening in Calgary
So I've been in Calgary just over two months and it's finally reached the point where the weather is consistently above zero. The bulbs are out and the mayday, cherry, apple, caragana, and crabapple trees are in full bloom. I have a 20' by 5' balcony that receives morning sun. What should I do with it? Keep in mind Calgary is USDA zone 3. I've purchased a few plants hardy to zone 2, such as lamium, lysimachia and ajunga. I'm thinking a combination of pots and window boxes. What other plants should I try, and what balcony/container gardening tips do you have?
