Cre­ate a hang­ing gar­den

North Harbour News - - HOME NEWS -

Ver­ti­cal gar­dens are the lat­est in­ter­na­tional land­scap­ing trend and now with its Ver­ti­cal Gar­den Bag, Yates has made it easy to have your very own hang­ing gar­den right out­side the back door.

There are three bags in each pack and all the in­struc­tions are in­cluded for grow­ing a suc­cess­ful ver­ti­cal dis­play. Sim­ply fill each bag with good qual­ity pot­ting mix, water, and plant seedlings into the ready-cut holes. Fin­ish by plant­ing a few more in the top.

Choose va­ri­eties that nat­u­rally grow down­wards (e.g. straw­ber­ries, vi­o­las, nas­tur­tiums, pros­trate thyme, lo­belias or suc­cu­lents).

As the plants grow they’ll grad­u­ally j oin to­gether to com­pletely cover the bag with a layer of fo­liage or flow­ers.

With three bags in each Yates Ver­ti­cal Gar­den Bag pack, home gar­den­ers will have plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­per­i­ment.
