Can someone suggest a variety of large leafed annual,suitable for containers,which could act as a privacy screen on a hot balcony?I would prefer a plant which I could start from seed.Thank you,Veronica

You could try castor beans. They have very large leaves and will grow as tall as you let them. I have no idea as to their suitability for containers. Please be aware that most parts of this plant are poisonous, especially the seed pods, so if you have small children, it's probably not a good idea.
