Small space gardening is growing every year. New and innovative methods of growing plants are introduced every year. Here is a bunch of interesting, low cost ways of growing a vertical garden.
1. Compartment Wall Garden
An open front box with compartments and a back hanger can make a great vertical gardens. Easy-to-grow succulents of different types are first planted in different compartments. Interesting patterns can be created by mixing and matching the succulents selected. Make sure to have a hanger screwed into the back to hang the box to the wall. It might look difficult but the succulents are easy to grow using a light soil mix.
Here is the Green Wall (25 Compartments)By Gold Leaf Design Group available for $460 which comes with the succulents carefully grown and all you have to do is to hang it to the wall.
2. Pill-Box Indoor/Outdoor planters
An old favorite that is available in many stores is the Metal wall planter in different sizes which can be mixed and matched to create an interesting silhouette. Easy to install, easy to nurture plants and easy on the pocket too!
3. Ladder with adjustable shelves for gardening
A simple ladder against the wall can be used for hanging plants from the rungs. A slightly wider rung/shelf can be used to set small pots,jars.
4.Clay Pots on a simple copper hanger
Give your wall a little love with this white wash clay pots on copper finish wall rack. Available at a very reasonable $68.00 from Kalalou.
5.Macrame Panel for hanging garden
A very interesting concept we found was a macrame panel hung from a rod wich is firmly and strongly woven out of nylon and can be used to hang garden pots, recycled bottles for plants, hanging plant tubes. In fact anything can be hung from this strong macrame panel. If you know how to macrame this can be a really cool DIY project.
6. Pot Head Shelf Sitters
And finally some really cute pots with river rock bases which can sit on narrow ledges, leftover space on a bathroom shelf, along the stairs.
Happy Gardening! Watch this space for more ideas!
