"My first attempt at a vertical garden. It's about 15" in diameter and 3 feet tall. This should give a lot of growing space if it works!"
"A 4" pvc pipe drilled full of holes rises through the center of the grower. It is filled with a mix of sand and gravel. All the instructions I've found on this grower say to fill the pvc and then remove it. I went a step further with my method. This way the sand and gravel shouldn't shift throughout the potting soil."
We're intrigued - have any of the gardening inclined readers out there tried something similar? Let us know...
Also from Art and Chel...a great looking (and super clever) indoor lawn, bringing a bit of green and space definition into their new kitchen.
Thanks, Art and Chel for tagging the photos of your balcony garden...they are perfect inspiration for Outdoor Home month!
