15. I cut the plant pots in half and glued them to a sturdy water proof board. | the herb garden.

Springtime is right around the bend and we need to get our gardening binge on, right?

  I wanted to try some new ways to display my plants for everyone to enjoy and I opted for the vertical gardens using herbs and delicate scented flowering plants (easy garden plants). You can ask your local plant shop what plants would work best for your outdoor vertical garden since there are so many options readily available.

I just choose herbs mostly because I use them quite a bit. So, let me walk you through the process of the vertical wall garden. I bought my pots wholesale and I had them cut in half by a professional since I didn’t think I would be able to do that without ruining them, next I bought a long rectangle piece of board that was waterproof and using a strong adhesive I applied the glue to the edges of the cut pots and placed them on the board in a slightly slanted fashion for a more decorative effect.

After it dried (I left it overnight) I mounted it on the wall. Next, I cut some coffee filters in half and placed them into the pot to prevent any loss of soil and then placed the herb plants into the pots (I did this six times). I made a concerted effort to use only plants with delicate leaves because the pots were small and to have a broadleaf plant would overwhelm the look and probably not survive in such a constricted space. It took only two days for this project, by the way, our next vertical garden will be a standing one and it was just as easy to get done.

For your standing vertical garden, have a steel rod soldered onto a nice sturdy flat base, measure how many pots can safely be impaled on the steel rod. My garden could only hold 5 and it was stacked largest below and smallest on top. In addition to that, I stacked them facing in opposite directions so the aesthetic look for the vertical garden would be enhanced.

When that was completed, I placed the soil into the pots and transplanted the chosen plants into the respective pots. Pay attention to this part, you want your heavier plants below and smaller ones on top so all of them can thrive properly. Finally, don’t forget that plants need water and plenty of sunshine, you can to maintain them for you to continue to enjoy their contributions to your space.
