The Balcony Gardener, based in the UK, offers a variety of solutions for urban dwellers with minimal outdoor space (but maximal aspirations). According to Isabelle Palmer, “I’ve put together a collection of pieces and brought them together under one roof; from plants, seeds, and window boxes to pots, planters, and garden furniture.” We especially like the company’s readymade container gardens, with offerings ranging from the Contemporary Urban Garden to the English Country Garden. To see the full range, go to The Balcony Gardener.

Above: The Small Contemporary Garden includes three zinc planters with a selection of seasonal plantings; £395.

Above: The Evergreen Window Box is £85.

Above: The Small Edible Garden includes a self-watering trough and three Provence planters, as well as a selection of preplanted herbs; £170.
