Vertical Gardening


I found this photo while reading a design article
The nifty wall pockets are found here.

Can't seem to get enough of the vertical gardens.  I must figure out a way to incorporate some for our new deck...

I like them too. I think that would be nice for a deck.

Ingenious! However, old habits die hard and I can't see myself breaking away from moss lined baskets and terra cotta pots.

How cool is that...a solution for a boring spider plant gone wild...

The would look great on your deck in little niches...and I visited their website and you're out in the boonies, you could be out in your garden nekked, too, HaHaMeow

I've heard of these, they're especially good for flats that have limited space of balconies.

I've seen the wall panels you can get that use a filtration system to drip-down and water the plants that way - think of plants on a steep mountain.

My one tip would be don't build it too high that you can't weed or trim it :)

Very pretty. I checked out the site those things are fabulous, now if I could just grow stuff.

They are so elegant looking to me!

I wanted to try those plastic hanging bags that grow tomatoes upside down, but Mr. Cheap wouldn't spring for them, so we planted tomatoes in hanging baskets.

The jury is still out on that one....
