Name: JeannieLocation: Alberta, CanadaGarden size: 6 feet by 20 feetThis lush garden is set precariously on a 16th-floor balcony of a high-rise condominium. Because Canada has such a short growing season, owner Jeannie often chooses her plants based on durability. In the spring, she'll plant the entire garden with annuals and then let the plants dry out in the fall. "In the winter, the snow creates natural sculptural shapes and the dried plants give something for the hoar frost to cling to — it's quite beautiful when that happens," she says.
