The per­fect ver­ti­cal so­lu­tion for small spa­ces

If you lack plant­ing space or want to cre­ate a gar­den fea­ture us­ing pot­plants, think ver­ti­cal.

Zigi says...

This plant stand looks like a minia­ture ver­sion of the stands where the lo­cal team plays each week. It’s a clever way to cre­ate a herb or veg­etable gar­den in a small area. Use treated wood – the slightly green­ish wood that builders use for scaf­fold­ing and roof trusses. Not only is it con­sid­er­ably cheaper than other wood but it will also with­stand the el­e­ments for much longer. Although we painted ours a lovely duck-egg blue, paint is not re­ally nec­es­sary, and nei­ther is var­nish.
