There is something so satisfying about growing and eating your own food. If you think you don't have the space, think again! This vertical salad garden by Anne Phillips at Go Green Gardeners is less than a meter wide and 1.5 meters tall. Here's what's involved:
The edible wall of lettuces, arugula, Swiss chard, mustard, strawberries and herbs uses a French riddling rack to hold seeds instead of wine. Genius!
The plants were added from the reverse side of the rack before coconut fibre and soil were packed in around the plants roots. The fibres are kept in place with fencing material. Not all plants will work in this set up, but plants that need a lot of drainage like lettuces and strawberries would work wonderfully!
