You could try an MFJ Artificial Ground unit. The easiest way in a flat is to use a balanced antenna, a dipole for example and use a choke on the coax feeder to keep some RF out of your flat.

And no, an electrical or RF ground cannot be found in a pot ... Very Happy

An antenna doesn't have to be connected to a literal earth, indeed most antennas aren't. It is important to have some sort of ground plane, but for a lot of antennas this could be as little as a couple of quarter wave lengths of wire trailing around the balcony or some chicken wire around the sides of the balcony.
