WALL FLOW­ERS

South African Garden and Home - - Vertical Gardens -

“I wanted to cre­ate a win­dow box ef­fect, but on walls,” says Deb­bie le Roux of Pa­tioS­capes™, who de­signed this ver­ti­cal gar­den for Gar­den World. “We wanted some­thing that took up lit­tle space and was safe for the en­vi­ron­ment.” It’s made with the Pa­tioS­capes™ GrowBagZ™ sys­tem of in­di­vid­ual pouches and has a built-in reser­voir and drainage. If plant­ing an­nu­als and peren­ni­als, they should be first planted in the GrowBagZ™ and then placed in the pock­ets. For ev­er­greens, you can just plant them di­rectly into the pock­ets. Where to use it: On ex­te­rior walls, in a court­yard or on a pa­tio. Just make sure the plants get enough sun.

What to plant: Herbs, veg­gies, ground­cov­ers, fo­liage plants and an­nu­als.
