I only have a small townhouse with an even smaller balcony.

It measures about 3 meters square.  The walls are around 2.5 meters tall also so I can't look over them and there is limited light during the day

What I was wondering was what people recommend in terms of growing veggies, herbs etc.

If you can hang something from the balcony wall then how about hanging baskets for the herbs?

You could hang them high which will leave you room underneith for other plants, chairs etc plus if they are high then they might get a bit more sunlight.

That's not a bad idea.  I can hang them over the railing up high no problem.  Thank you Julie

Dave, Chillies and garlic.  I know they are easy to get from the supermarket but nothing beats fresh garlic - the taste is nothing like the supermarket variety.  Chillies look good.
