Garden Trend: Wildflower Garden In The City


May 25, 2021 5:16:45 PM

There’s no better way to get in the spring spirit than by watching beautiful wildflowers bloom outside your window. If you’re living in the city and feel a bit limited on planting space, don’t count yourself out just yet! Transform your concrete apartment balcony or tiny backyard with colorful, low-maintenance wildflowers that will thrive in urban settings.

Growing wildflowers in the city

Wildflowers are among the most low maintenance, yet rewarding plants to add to your garden. One of the great things about planting wildflowers is that you don’t need acres of rolling hills for them to thrive. In fact, wildflowers will grow just as well in pots and containers on your patio or balcony. 

Spruce up your outdoor space with bright and colorful wildflowers from Curtis and Curtis Seed! Once you’ve decided on the perfect wildflower seeds, fill your favorite outdoor planters with planting soil and keep a watering bucket close by for regular watering. Be sure that your pots have holes in the bottom for proper drainage.

Make the most out of your small space

If you’re used to having wide open spaces, living in the city can feel restricting when it comes to exercising your green thumb. However, with a little effort you can still make the most of your small space to create a beautiful and calming outdoor oasis. In addition to potted plants, consider adding hanging plants or box planters to your windows or balcony railing. This will add dimension to your small garden and optimize space if you’re low on floor space. 

The key to making the most of your small space is to work with what you have instead of focusing on what you don’t have. Why limit yourself just to your patio or balcony? Add decorative pots and colorful blooms on either side of your doorway to add some “curb appeal” to your entryway.
