Full sun balcony flowers can be used for an assortment of purposes from adding color to a flower garden or to fill in the bare spots along a wall. Growing flowers from full sun will allow you to have flowers all year long, or at least all the time you want them to be there. They will love the sunshine and they will add color as well as beauty to your apartment garden.
Of course, you need to place your flowers in such as way that they get their required amount of sunlight during the day. Most varieties will do fine with full sun if placed 6 feet away from a south facing wall. You can also choose to go with partial shade if you have some trees growing in your yard that are blocking the full sun. The flowers will do fine with partial shade as long as they are given their needed light during the day. If you plant them too close together, they may not get enough light to grow properly.
Of course, balcony flowers can only bloom during the summer months. This is why it is important to plant them when the summer is at its peak. You should start planning your apartment planting and balcony flowers garden around late summer for the best results. You should wait until fall before you get started with preparing your balcony and patio for the fall season.
You should only plant one type of flowering plant and that is what makes balcony planting fun. You can plant almost any flowering plant, and they will thrive with a little bit of shade. Most people who live on their balconies plant flowers and plants that bloom in the spring and summer months. You should avoid planting plants that require a lot of sun in the summer months as these will only provide you with a shallow shade during the heat of summer.
Some of the flowers and plants that flourish best when planted on a balcony are those that come in the color of purple. Purple blossoms look fantastic when they are in the form of blooms. If you are fortunate enough to have a balcony area that has three levels then you could mix and match the colors of the flowers and plants to make them look even more attractive. Most apartment balcony areas do not have levels so plan your plants accordingly. If you have a balcony with only one level then you can pretty much use any color you want.
The taller plants do better in full sun because they get more of the sun than shorter plants. However, if you have plants that need shade or prefer a shaded area then do not place them under direct sunlight. A good example of this are chrysanthemums. They can survive in partial shade but they would be miserable if placed under direct sunlight. You should check with local flora experts to determine what plants and flowers will do well and thrive in your area.
If you have a balcony and a deck attached to your apartment building then the balcony would be considered your outside balcony. This means you should consider the plants that will go best with your deck. Full sun and bright flowers are great additions to the outside of your apartment. These flowers can stand up to strong winds and they are easily worked into any kind of landscaping scheme. Keep in mind that the most important thing for balcony flowers is that they receive plenty of full sun throughout the day.
As you can see, flowers and plants that are using to grow in balconies are generally stronger and better able to weather harsher climates. However, if you do live in an area where there is consistently hot sunshine all year round then it may be a good idea to choose your plants depending on what season it is. The flowers and plants that do better with warmer temperatures are generally the ones that will also do better with less watering. For example, tulips and hydrangeas prefer a drier climate but can tolerate some water.
