Good  sound  advice  about  how  to  start  your  own  balcony  garden frm  Alan  TichMarch  ~ But  not  for  the  fient  hearted  or  for  those  that  suffer  from  vertigo.

You  all   find  Me  with  My  feet  pon  tera  firma  and  gardening  within  limits  of  my  insurance  allows.

If  you  got  really  tall  trees  that  need  to  pruned  best  call  a  arborist  who    should  be  covered  by  the  insurance  and  trained  on  how  to  cut  down  trees.

I'm  not  sure  how  the  insurance  will  cover   these  balcony  gardens  though
