My Apartment Balcony

Post by Syed Adnan » May 19th, 2015, 11:27 am

Hi folks,
It's been long since I was on this forum, real missed u guys. Reason is that I have shifted and presently living in Darwin, Northern Australia. It's a lush green tropical area. So good news for me that I can grow plants round the year. I have started building a small container garden at my Apartment Balcony. I am open for any advises. So Salam to all and nice to be back on this forum.

Cheers !

This area receives 11 hours sunlight daily, temps here 20 to 32 throughout the year.

1. What type of plants best suited this weather ?
2. Any suggestion for potting soil recipe ?
