Growing Herbs on the Balcony in Johor Bahru, Malaysia
seeds growing in trays

If you read my blog you will know already that I spend a lot of time out on my balcony and love the lush plants that I have around me, but growing these plants is not hard at all. The trick is to start small with cuttings or seeds and let them grow into the area of the balcony that is suitable to the plant you are growing, some like sun , some like shade and some hate the wind while other love it, so many things to find out but it will all come together as you have a go at it.

Today I am growing a Lemon Tree and some Chinese chives, I have then started in small soil bags and once they are strong and stable i will transplant them into their own pots or trays.
