Grow a Vertical Garden Indoors May 26, 2013 / Gavin / 1 Comment Grow a Vertical Garden Indoors Growing a vertical garden indoors is the same as growing plants in containers on the fire escape or indoors. Plants need the same thing, no matter how you arrange them. It’s a fairly straightforward process involving containers, a hanging system, water and soil. Growing a vertical wall garden indoors is the perfect way to get your herb garden without taking up precious kitchen space. What is A Vertical Wall Garden? A vertical garden involves a sort of container and system that lets you place the plants vertically. Most often vertical wall gardens are attached to the wall or lean against it. Any garden that meets this criterion is a vertical wall garden.  It’s really that simplistic and it’s just as easy to maintain as a regular garden. What Can I Plant? The sky is the limit for vertical wall gardens as they are essentially the same as regular gardens just vertical rather than horizontal. You can grow a selection of herbs in a vertical wall garden and hang the containment system on the wall of your kitchen. You can also make a vertical wall garden of veggies by using the right materials to create a structure able to support larger vegetable plants, like tomatoes. You can also choose to plant a selection of flowering greenery, vines or even cactus.  Anything of a reasonable size can be planted in a vertical garden. Just don’t expect it to hang on the wall with a large vertical garden as the weight of the soil and plants tends to make it difficult. Indoor Difference DIY Indoor Wall Gardens You can make an indoor wall garden in a variety of ways. You can use recycled materials, like old gutters, or materials bought from the home improvement store. When it comes to making your own indoor vertical wall garden, there are many options and styles to create or buy. Picture Frame The picture frame is the simplest of the indoor vertical wall garden types. Start with an old picture frame or make your own frame. Then, attach chicken wire to the frame. Hold the wire in place with a second smaller frame—either bought or handmade. Attach the back to the second frame. Fill with soil, plant your favorites and water them. Recycled Materials Most materials can be reworked into a vertical wall garden. For example, you could attach three rows of gutters to a solid wall in the interior of your home. Fill the gutters will soil and plant with your favorite flowers, vines or veggies for a permanent feature wall. Containment System A container system starts with a series of containers, set of brackets and a strong material, like wood. You can use a piece of plywood or other suitable material as the backing. Attach the containers to the material with nails or staples. Then, add soil and plants. Hang or rest against a wall. The only difference between an outdoor and indoor vertical wall garden is the size and weight. Because houses do not have unlimited space, so indoor vertical wall gardens tend to be smaller and less heavy. The picture frame style indoor wall garden is entirely possible, but it can get messy. Containment systems are more likely. Indoor vertical wall gardens can be messy, if the wrong materials are used. That’s way the container vertical wall method is more likely to be used then the picture frame style vertical wall style. Indoor vertical wall gardens are very easy to make and add a living piece of art to your humble abode. The endless options make for individual and fun vertical gardens for your home. What kind of plants do you want to sow into your indoor vertical garden?

Growing a Vertical Wall Garden of Succulents May 9, 2013 / Gavin / 4 Comments Do you have a boring patio or garden wall? Are you looking for a way to add some color and interest to the wall? If so, you should consider creating your very own colorful and living work of art to liven up that space – with succulents. A vertical garden, or a hanging garden made of living plants, is a fantastic way to turn a ho-hum space into a focal point. Succulents are an excellent choice for a vertical garden because they are hearty, they grow slowly and they come in a range of colors, sizes and textures. Blending a variety of these plants together to create a vertical garden will create instant interest to your space. Are you intrigued by the idea of adding such a garden to your space, but think that it will be too difficult to create and care for? Think again! A vertical succulent wall garden is actually quite easy to create and rather easy to care for. Creating the Garden To create your succulent wall garden, you are going to need a frame, potting soil and a collection of succulent clippings. You can purchase a preassembled frame from a home supply store, or you can create one yourself. Creating one yourself will require a picture frame, a wooden shadow box, planting fabric and potting soil. After you add your potting soil to your planter, make sure that the wire is accessible. The wire is what will secure the plants in place. To plant the succulents, poke the ends through the wire and push them into the soil. After arranging the plants, let the frame lay flat in a sunny location so that they can take root. This will take anywhere from about 4 to 10 weeks. Once the plants take root, the garden is ready to be displayed on a wall. Alternatively, you can go with a ready-made living wall planter from uzplanters. Making an Attractive Display It really doesn’t require much to create an attractive succulent wall garden. There are so many different types of succulent plants and all of them are as attractive as the next. Use your eye for what you think looks best on how to arrange them in the planter. Group together plants that you think look the best. A word of advice; creating a cluster of several of the same types of succulents will make for a very eye-catching display. Light Considerations When it comes to hanging your succulent wall garden, you are going to want to display it in a space that receives a lot of sun. Succulents require full sunlight in order to thrive. This means that the space you hang the garden should receive a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight. These plants will survive in areas that receive slightly less sunlight, but they will not thrive as well as they would in direct sunlight. Watering Your Garden As with all plants, your succulent wall garden will require regular watering. These plants should be watered when they approach dryness, which is about every 7 days or so. In order to determine whether or not your plants are approaching dryness, use your finger to feel the soil. If it feels on the dry side, the plants will need watering. To water, remove the planter from the wall and lay it flat. Water the planter lightly and allow the water to drain well before replacing it on the wall. A succulent wall garden will be sure to add instant interest and life to your space. With little maintenance, these gardens are an ideal addition to your outdoor space.
