Hello! I've moved recently and my new apartment has three lovely planters around 1.5 metres long and 30cm wide. There's one facing SSW and two facing NNE. The south facing one gets a lot of direct sun. The other two are quite shady. Here's some pictures (taken around 2pm). There is a crack in the south facing one which means whenever it's watered it goes into the balcony below. Our landlord has suggested that it would need to be lined to prevent this but I'm worried about there not being any drainage at all? Though I expect the wooden boxes on their own had no drainage anyway. Is it big enough that it doesn't matter or will that be a problem? Ideally I would like something quick and easy to plant rather than bulbs or seeds, though I'm not against having something reasonably evergreen with some seasonal interest. Also reasonably low maintenance. Colour would be great. So I would appreciate any ideas you might have! I just don't know what I can plant that will be practical and beautiful and will thrive in the conditions - I don't really know enough! Also any ideas for hanging baskets in shady places would be well received! Thanks!!
