Picture frame vertical garden
A small vertical garden in a picture frame is easy to make and a great seller.
1. Take cuttings of succulents, leaving a 5cm stem attached. Let them dry for a couple of days.
2. Find a wooden box with low sides, plus a fancy picture frame. The box should be about 3cm smaller than the frame. Turn the picture frame over and staple a piece of wire mesh to the back to just cover the hole.
3. Flip the frame over and line the box with heavy-duty black plastic.
4. Attach 2cm-angle brackets to the sides of the box. Place the picture frame on top of the box and secure it.
5. Attach two D-rings to the top of the box on the back for hanging.
6. Fill the box with succulent potting mix. Plant the succulent cuttings in between the mesh until the frame is filled. You can use sphagnum moss to fill in any gaps.
7. Leave the box and frame lying flat for six weeks or more until roots develop, anchoring the succulents.
