Introduction to Your Balcony Garden

tree iconamy adams a/k/a amy marie adams Hi my name is Amy and I’m a city gardener, I created a garden on my balcony back in early 2009 and started blogging about it to share my garden adventures. It was a periodic blog and now has been updated to be mobile friendly (march 2015) and spring is here so it has been resusitated. It has undergone many transformations when time allowed, here I share some of the things that I’ve learned about gardening on the balcony. The articles that I”ve written thusfar are below, the blog was on hiatus for sometime so as I go will be updating info but mostly it is a timeless art and plants haven’t changed that much 🙂 Most articles and images are in english and a few in romanian. Click here to hear an audio introduction from a few years ago. and here is a video that I made sometime ago to tell people about the blog – you can turn your balcony into a garden! Please share it with your friends on FB and twitter 🙂 thanks for your support.

To make it easier to find more detailed info on a topic that is covered in my articles and posts, beginning in 2015, quick links will be at the bottom of them. For instance my recent April 15 post,includes 2 links. One is to an external site with gorgeous flower images and the other to a page on my site with videos, a wiki and whatever else I can find or add about dahlias since they were discussed in this post – p.s. Dahlias thrive on balconies.

Garden Art Ts

This blog is really a hobby for me. By trade I am an artist and make art. Amongst those things that I make are unique hand printed Tshirts and bags. Some of my subjects of these products are dragonflies & bees. So periodically I might post a link to an external site where you can purchase them. You can get a glimpse here. Here is one of the dragonfly tank tops –

Hope that you too will share in the quest and find your paradise too! Happy Gardening! ps will be organizing the older articles by subject soon so stay tuned, plus new articles on the way.
