Best Plants for a Windy Balcony

23 February, 2021

Growing plants on windy balconies can be a challenge. Strong winds can damage your plants and hinder their growth. For those with windy balconies, it is essential to grow wind-resistant plants which thrive in such windy situations. These plants have flexible stems and strong root systems that minimise the damage caused by the wind. Moreover, the wind is one of the biggest culprits of water loss as it dries out the top layer of soil quickly. As a result, you need to select plants that can survive the dry spells or use self-watering planters to ensure that they get the required amount of water frequently. So now if you want to know which plants will resist the wind, read on to see our top favourite wind-resistant plants for a windy balcony garden.

Now that you know what plants are best to grow on windy balconies, here are some planters that are best for growing in windy spaces.
