Post image for Black Friday – Here are Some Recommendations

I thought I would collect all of the product and book reviews posted on Life on the Balcony in one spot in case you’re planning on any Black Friday or Cyber Monday internet shopping…

  • Soil Scoop: My first video post (go easy on me!) of a useful product for container gardeners and traditional gardeners alike. The post contains a discount code that is good until April of next year.
  • Review of P. Allen Smith’s Container Gardening Deck: A short video explaining P. Allen Smith’s latest contribution to container gardening. If you (or the intended recipient) loves lush, overflowing containers, then this is a thoughtful gift that won’t break the bank.
  • Black Plants: 75 Striking Choices For the Garden: An almost stocking-stuffer sized book of plants for the gothic gardener. Every plant has a full color photo and description.
  • Welcoming Wildlife to the Garden: A great book about providing wildlife with what they need. Plenty of ideas specifically for balcony and patio gardeners.
  • 5 Great Herb Pots: Herb pots (smaller pots that are meant to be kept together as a group) make a great gift this time of year because they often fit perfectly on a windowsill for indoor herb growing.
  • Hello! Cupcake: You wouldn’t expect to find a baking book on a container gardening blog, but the book contains many garden inspired designs for those of you who enjoy both gardening and cooking (and eating!).
  • Children’s Garden Tools: A collection of different well-made tools for the younger gardener on your list.
  • Holy Land Olive Trees: A lot of people really seem interested in growing their own olives these days. These particular trees come from cuttings taken in Israel from ancient trees.
  • Self-Watering Containers: Another great gift idea for a gardener who wants to be able to do some indoor gardening during the winter. Self-watering pots don’t have drainage holes, so they don’t make a mess inside.
