Urban Jungle Bloggers – my plant (and puppy) gang

For this month’s Urban Jungle Bloggers post, Igor and Judith have asked us to show you our ‘plant gang’. So, I thought a few shots of my balcony plants would do the job perfectly.

When we got Otto a couple of years ago, I had to remove some of the plants from the balcony as he liked to eat them and dig them up, especially the climbing Jasmine and raspberry plant. Here’s the evidence…

We now have far fewer pots contained in a few crates that I salvaged from an orchard that I took school kids to many years ago. I love this time of year when everything is beginning to bloom and looking at its greenest.

The crates are perfect as they protect the decking from excess water and damp from the pot bases. Photograph by Katharine Peachey.

I have a few pots of herbs out here, too, and some early Sweet Peas ready to climb up a homemade frame. Photograph by Katharine Peachey.

I’m looking forward to adding more over the next few weeks and finally having some flowers that I can cut and display inside, which is the best thing ever.

P.S. A few more snaps of puppy Otto antics on the balcony. Can you see why we had to get rid of the carpet?! Luckily, he’s not so keen on the taste of plants these days.

      He was very cute as a pup but extremely naughty x

    Oh wow, he really is a handful! 😉 Your balcony garden looks wonderful though, love the crates.

      I love the crates too, makes it all seem a bit more organised and I like the way they look. Thanks for the comment, Yvonne x

    A plant and puppy gang – now that is a winner combination I’d say!! Although it seems the plant is the weaker link here ahahahaha. Such a lovely post, Katy!!

      Ha!! We’ll keep quiet about that, Igor 😉

      He he! It is cheating a bit, isn’t it? More urban puppy than urban jungle 😉

    Aww too cute! I can definitely see why the carpet had to go, bet you don’t miss it either!
