Berlin-based designer Michael Hilgers offers a fresh alternative to the traditional balcony planter box, one that is perfect for any urban garden with limited space. His On the Edge line of pots are 100% water-resistant polyethylene with two separate chambers that slip easily over and sit securely on any balcony railing with a maximum thickness of 60mm.
In it’s separate compartments you could easily plant flowers on one side, herbs on the other.
A similar over-the-railing balcony planter is produced by Greenbo.
