Are those runner beans at the far end? It's difficult to tell from the photo, but you seem to have erected a frame.

Yes it's two doors away from me, at the end of the of the balcony. I am lucky to have all that space. Charlie and William love there Vegetable and herb garden; and I'm loving doing it. I will take some photos to show you more of my balcony.

Thanks for confirming they are Runner beans as I thought. It's good to grow things & if other people can benefit & you get enjoyment out of it, then what could be better? :-))

Looking forward to your future photos.

Our balcony isn't looking very good at present as I'm in the process of removing the spring flowers that have mostly gone over now & replacing them with the summer bedding plants. :-))

I think I put the runner beans out a bit to early. One or two; don't seem to be doing to good. I'm hopping they will pick up. A lot of ground floor balcony gardeners in my area, move some of their pots out onto the grass. Would you be able to do that?

No, I don't think so. Our "lawn", as my wife sometimes refers to it, is sometimes cut by the council gardeners using a ride-on mower & I think it would be very difficult to weave around any pots I were to put out. LOL!

Nevertheless I push my long, white troughs on the balcony floor almost half their width outside the balcony floor. This obviously gives me a few extra inches of space on the balcony - very welcome in the summer - but doesn't impinge on the grass nor impede the gardeners from cutting the grass.
