8 mistakes we unknowingly commit in our balcony gardens

Homify Logo By LEENA JHA HOMIFY of Homify | Slide 1 of 8: There are many simple and fancy available in market. However, the best pots are the one made of natural material that breathes. Clay is best when it comes to pot. The porous clay allows air to pass through it and also dry out faster. Ceramic and plastic pots look good and are durable, but then their material doesn’t allow it to breathe. Select the pots with hole in the bottom so that excess water can drain out easily. Along with the material, it is also equally important to select the pots of right size depending on the size and growth of the plants growing in that pot. Avoid too many small pots as it will clutter your balcony.
