Gardening is one of life’s great pleasures. It provides an opportunity to take a break from the business of everyday life and slow down, get your hands dirty and focus on something pure for a short period of time.
Living in an apartment with a balcony means you can easily indulge in this peaceful pastime. While you could plant a vertical garden, miniature vegetable garden, or flowers, a succulent garden can be a particularly appealing option for balcony gardeners.
The brilliant thing about succulents is that they are low maintenance, but they are also incredibly versatile and can adapt to any budget or amount of space.
Many nurseries sell ready-made succulent gardens if you don’t have the time or patience to create your own. You can buy individual succulents and plant them into a range of separate containers, or you can mix a range of succulents in one or two larger pots. When potting your succulents, use a mix of potting soil and gravel to ensure good drainage.
Succulent gardens prefer a position in part-sun and part-shade, so make sure you put your succulent garden in a spot that does get sun at some point during the day. Not too much sun though, as succulents can get sunburned!
Your succulents will require some water, but not too much. Overwatering your succulents can cause the roots to rot, and it is often difficult to know this has occurred until it is too late.
