MAKE VIRGINIA’S VERTICAL PALLET PLANTER
You will need Pallet; hammer or crow bar; two lengths of timber the same depth as your pallet, cut to the width of your pallet; scrap timber; chalkboard paint; paintbrush and chalk; potted herbs or flowers
ONE Lay pallet down and remove two or more slats to create two gaps to fit plants into at the centre and base of the pallet – where the cross pieces are.
TWO Lean pallet against the wall and slide each length of timber plywood onto the cross pieces to create two shelves for the pots to sit on.
THREE Paint scrap timber with chalkboard paint and, once dry, screw into place onto the front of each shelf.
FOUR Place potted plants into each shelf and write names of herbs onto each label using chalk.
TIP If the back of your pallet is missing slats, remove them and screw on a cut-to-fit piece of corrugated iron.
Bag it If you decide to build sacks instead of shelves, just staple them into each gap.
If a herb garden isn’t for you, try potted annuals. They’ll add a lovely splash of colour to your outdoor space.
