How To Organize Balcony Plants at Your Apartments in India
Whenever we go to the gardens or park outside, sometimes we feel like having a small and beautiful garden in our house.

- Consider weight and position of Sun
Before making a garden you have to consider that if your balcony is getting enough sunlight and how much weight it can hold, like for e.g. if the balcony is small and placed in the east then it will get good sunlight but can’t hold heavy mud pots it can hold only basket pots or plastic pots only.
