Balconies at London’s iconic Barbican Estate prove that bigger isn’t always better when it comes to green space.
Our philosophy at the East End Gardener is that there’s no patch of concrete too small to be beautified. Balconies, yards and even window sills can become gardens.
So if you’re planning your pot planting, take inspiration from the Barbican balconies, where tumbling vines and colour-pop peonies bring the Brutalist concrete to life.
