You do not need a professional or lots of money to create a cosy breathing space where to sit down with a cup of tea or a delicious breakfast.
Just go outside and tidy up the balcony, get a few geraniums in your favourite colour, a couple of window boxes, good multipurpose compost and your all set.
Make sure to pierce some drainage holes on the back about two cm from the bottom, this way you allow for a little reservoir and more time in between watering.
It takes is a little discipline and dedication to deadhead and water regularly but the real thing is so much better than artificial.
Overlooking a beautifully tended garden always helps!
