This 1919 bungalow was lovingly taken care of but just needed a few things to make it complete. The owner, an avid gardener wanted someplace to bring in plants during the winter months. This small addition accomplishes many things in one small footprint. This potting room, just off the dining room, doubles as a mudroom. Design by Meriwether Felt, Photos by Susan Gilmore
What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Skipping on fertilisersWater and sunlight are the essentials but your balcony garden needs supplementary nutrients and nourishment too. And that is exactly what fertilisers are for; you can buy fertilisers specially meant for container plants or you can go for compost. The latter is organic and also eco-friendly. Mix a handful of fertiliser in the soil every fortnight to keep your plants healthy. Regular use of fertilisers is necessary for potted plants as they get used up quickly and regular watering washes them out, too.
