I've always loved the idea of a vertical or hanging garden. I thought they were pretty clever! They're a great alternative for someone who doesn't have a lot of gardening space. There are plenty of tutorials online if you'd like to make your own.
I considered it, but found a cheaper solution at Ross.
When I spotted it, I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
I lined the bottom of the form with a coconut basket, that I cut to fit. I planted succulents and waited a few months to see how well they did in the shade before I added more.
These spoon markers are the perfect accessory.
Most cacti or succulents are drought tolerant and do not require much care. Since I was planting in the shade I chose plants that were part sun.
The plants are filling in nicely.
Even with all the dirt and plants it's not heavy. I attached it to the house with 2 screws.
I am worried about the winter though. I may have to bring it indoors.
But for now I'm going to sit back and enjoy my little garden.
