For houses with a standing balcony, placing the usual floor plant pots is not really an option. It will only further reduce the usable space of the balcony; hence you will not enjoy your evening cup of tea there. If you love gardening but are restricted due to lack of space, adding railing planters is the perfect way to fulfil your hobby while not compromising the space.
There are three different types of railing planters you will find online in India, as discussed below.

This type of railing planter hangs over the railings and adds to the curb appeal. You can find many varieties of these railing planters online in India.
