We've always marveled at the large public vertical gardens created by masters like Patrick Blanc — and now Smith & Hawken is offering some new products to help you create a vertical garden at home, either indoors or out...
The Vertical Garden Planting Panel is made from high-density recyclable polyethylene. The 45 cells in each panel hold a combined total of 22 quarts of soil. Measuring 19.5" x 2.75" x 19.5", the panel is available individually for $69 from Smith & Hawken.
The Large Vertical Garden Living Wall Kit, makes it possible to move your vertical garden indoors — it includes a handmade cedar frame, 2 Vertical Garden Planting Panels and has an integrated watering system that collects run off water in the base of the cedar frame. It measures 22" x 6" x 59" and is $399 from Smith & Hawken.The Cedar planter can be freestanding or mounted for extra stability.
We're super excited about this product — we wish our apartment had enough light to grow plants! This would be a great addition to a sunny kitchen as it could function as a convenient, space-saving herb garden! OR multiples would make a textural room divider in a light-filled studio. Without the large frame, planting panels could be used on balconies and terraces to great affect.
