Up a Wall

If you’re outta floor, deck, or counter space for plants, why not – go – up a wall?

Vertical Garden

This Saturday, August 13th, I’ll be playing with plants – VERTICALLY at Filoli. If you’ve not been to this treasured estate and garden in Woodside, California, it is worth a trip. 

Scouring the Lila B. photo archives while planning for the class reminded me that the possibilities are endless! Plus, it’d be fun to share some ideas.

Each day this week, starting this very morning, a new idea on vertical gardening will be posted on Facebook.

Hope you’ll join along. I’d love to see some of your vertical living art too.

Happy small space gardening everyone!

How-To: Mini {Garden} Living Wreath

December 12, 2015
Posted by in Holiday

Inspired to create a wreath that is also a mini garden? A twist on the living wreath and vertical garden craze, this project requires only ordinary ingredients and takes less than an hour to make. Hang it, grow it, and harvest your very own {garden} wreath.

 

Needs:

Chicken Wire
Wire Cutter
Plants (we chose edible ones here) Strawberry and Thyme in 4″ containers
Sphagnum Moss (moistened)

 

1) Using a wire cutter slice off a strip of chicken wire about 8″ wide. Fold and roll the wire into a tube. Then bend into a loop (or wreath).

2) Stuff the holes in the chicken wire with your (moistened) moss.

3) Unpot your plants. We chose blooming and almost fruiting strawberries and two varieties of time. Squeeze and shake off the extra soil.

4) Open up the wire slits – and place your plants inside. Squeeze the wires shut again to hold it together. Work around the wreath form and keep planting big plants through the slits and smaller plants thru the holes.
