When I moved from my rural childhood home to the city several years ago, the first thing I missed was the space. Walking the narrow cobbled streets of Florence, Italy (my first home away from home) I would stare enviously at the balconies and private gardens of those luckier than I, wishing I could have any space in which to garden.
 
Fast forward a few years, and I now have a tiny apartment in Vancouver, Canada, with a key feature — a balcony! It’s my little green oasis where I’m always plotting to fit just one more plant into.
