Re: How I built my vertical garden

Hi @greygardener I have been experimenting with some different plants due to the position of the garden. As it's under the eaves I want to make sure that what I plant will survive in this space.

So far we have some small Yucca Elephantipes in the centre row, Lomandra 'Lime Tuff' above the yuccas and Lomandra longifolia 'Little Con' below.

For the very top and bottom row I'm planning to plant agave attenuatas - I'm just searching for some the right size. When it's all planted out I'll post a pic!

Agree with @timjeffries, strawberry will look great in the pots.

Imagine in summer you will have a row or two red strawberries and some white flowers hanging down from the pot!

Adding in lettuces, spinach, rainbow chards and kales will also give you some interesting colors during winter.

Enjoy the great home-grown veggies!

Wow, looks tidy Darren on the wall esp the choice of terracott pots.

I love the idea of anyone using vertical space for gardening. Congrats.

I was wondering about watering such pot plants in height, not easy to reach fora short person like me esp during summer months, there are hoses available no doubt to reach tall.

But while consrtucitng this project did you think about tray level drip irrigation via crates or tubes that can carry/ run watering tubes to ech plant or set up a shower from the top  to down.

What do you think?
