All you need is good light, a wide rack of pots, some sitting area and awesome gardening skills. Making a small terrace into a place capable of spending your evening is more than what you would ever want. There are many smart ways that you could use to brighten up your balcony with less spending.

Make sure your plants get at least 4-5 hours of sunlight a day, this will help you analyze which containers should be placed at which spots. Woodland plants might still thrive with partial sunlight, so studying sunlight is important. Also, keep your containers close to each other, it will allow you to water them together with ease.
Now to consider the vegetables that you can grow in your balcony, under your supervision few feet away from you. Some need large containers like cauliflower and Brussel sprouts, but if you like to keep small ones than go for salad greens, eggplants and peppers.
