Balcony Garden Stirling

Glasgow, Scotland


This Wild Space is on a small balcony of a first floor flat in Stirling. It is roughly south-facing, so gets the sun for much of the day.

There are two larger planters on the ground, containing perennial plants (honeysuckle, lavender, Sea holly, Lamb’s-ear, Chives), bulbs (Iris and Muscari), and annuals (Nasturtium, Bidens).

The smaller planters contain more drought-tolerant plants including Sedum spectabile, Erigeron ‘sea breeze’, Bird’s-foot Trefoil, Oregano and Thyme. Some annual self-seeded wildflowers include Herb-robert and Common Vetch.
