So glad you liked this photo! They were rather slow taking off but now they look "Gorgeous" as you say! They will continue, more or less that way till the middle of October when they start to die back.

Have you got any tips for using these pouches Balcony?

I got some free with some other stuff this year and so I think I will try them next summer.

Other than putting a piece of plastic pipe with holes drilled in it so the water can get to the lower parts, nothing in particular.

Start them off using plug plants that are small otherwise you will fight to get them in & damage the plants. Probably best to use soiless composts as these are lighter & hold on to the water for longer. You may find you will have to cut the opening in the bags a little to give you more room for putting in the roots. I found it best to put the plugs in from the outside rather than trying to push them out from the inside.

That's great - especially the plastic pipe idea.
