Vertical garden- DIYPosted: April 19, 2012
I got the idea when I saw a website for Wooly Pockets, they are awesome, but pricy.
They have some amazing installations. Here are the two that inspired me;
Pics from the wooly Pocket Site.
I bought a roll of burlap a few years ago and use it for mulching and for weed control sometimes…when I had a square foot garden it entailed a LOT of weeding. Since I switched to all container gardening I spend almost NO time weeding! Hence I have a lot of burlap.
I am using a shoe rack I have an extra of; I have them in all my closets for organization.
I am cutting 27 inch by 11 inch pieces of burlap to use for each insert. I am then folding each one over so that each finished insert will be thick enough to stay damp for moisture retention. I don’t want my plants drying out too much during the day.
Here is what one insert looks like;
Here is a pic showing how it will look in the rack;
Here’s a few pics I found for inspiration….
The one I am making right now will have strawberries and herbs in it. I want to make another one for succulents but will use a pallet to plant in since I will want it to be permanent…
