I have gotten 99% of my plants over to the new place. Unfortunately most of them are hiding out in the garage, which isn’t exactly a great place for a living thing that needs light to survive. The problem is, my plants are in really large heavy pots, and until last night, I hadn’t even worked out where to place them on my balcony. I allowed myself to procrastinate on lugging them up the stairs until I had a plan.
The balcony is 13×4.5 feet and faces West. It gets almost no morning sun but a full dose of afternoon sun. The numbered circles are my larger pots, although I just noticed that I left off the P. Allen Smith pot. Eventually I’d also like to have two chairs and a table out there so that my husband can “smoke cigars and chill.” His words, not mine.
- Blood Orange tree
- Irises (I think that pot has ‘Best Bet’)
- Strawberry/Artemisia/Sweet Potato Vine
- Peach tree
- Apple tree
After I get the larger pots in place, I’ll eyeball where to put the smaller ones. Now I’ve got to get downstairs and start lugging those pots. No more excuses!
p.s. If I am able to get the pots up to the balcony, I’ll post photos in the LOTB Flickr group.
