On the balcony, I am only growing plants that are either entirely or partially edible. This is not because of a deliberate decision resulting in a ban of all non-edible plants from that space. It was rather the other way round: There never were any non-edible plants outside. I do have some of these, however. They live on different window sills inside the apartment and have to close ranks in late autumn when the balcony dwellers need to be overwintered inside. Yet right now, there is ample space. For example for this orchid that is already blossoming for the second time this year.
