City Living: A Portable Balcony Garden From France

Tiny apartment, big ideas—how can you (attractively) cram the most plants onto a miniscule balcony this spring? We like the idea of starting small with a portable baloncy garden kit by French designer Romain Vesvre. Made of solid wood, the balcony garden is configurable; add more shelves, planter boxes, and hanging bars as space allows:
