All those flowers and herbs can be cut off anytime you want to use them, whether in floral arrangements or cocktails.
Make sure to keep the soil lightly moist (not soggy, please). Growing is thirsty work.
A sunny spot
The more light they get the more flowers your plants will produce. Full sun isn’t essential, but it’s preferable.
This set includes sweet peas, nasturtium, rudbeckia, cornflowers, Moroccan mint and cosmos, which will keep your balcony bright until autumn.

About the balcony grow box
Growing your own plants from seed is simple and fun. It takes a little bit of patience, but that patience is well rewarded. This box contains seeds for five different plants, which will turn even the smallest balcony into a riot of colour and fragrance.
The set includes seeds for: sweet pea ‘Royal Family’; nasturtium ‘Gleam Fields’; rudbeckia ‘Goldsturm’; cornflowers; Moroccan mint; and cosmos ‘Fizzy Pink’. It also includes soil discs to get your planting started. You’ll need some extra compost for when it comes planting your seedlings outside.
The set comes with full instructions on how to plant your seeds (it’s incredibly simple). Treat them right and you’ll have flowers and mint until October, or even beyond. And all those flowers should bring lots of bees, butterflies and other pollinators to your outdoor space.
