Vertical edible wall

There has been a recent trend …. vertical gardening … a garden that is taking shape in a unique direction … we had a security grill that was in the garden measuring 120cm x 178cm approx … it would fill the space between the front door of the Space and front door.  It was an ideal size … I have yet to find whether it can be fitted to the wall of the Space … I’ll add photos when we erect …

It’s completely radical … definitely does not fit into the strict guidelines of garden designs or sewn into the ground …. I am hoping to showcase colours, textiles, vibrancy and ohh yes … wellie boots … NOW you know why I was looking for some … thank you to those lovely clients who have popped some to me … a little bit of quirky, some FUN, and a little bit of laughter …  I know that YOU will understand what I was aiming for … I’ll pop some photos up soon …  just to say peppa pig (even though I don’t  …. oops … no …. agree with her behaviour! … oops … please don’t judge me … I’m pro parents …) features …. I think it’s current … any other offerings are welcome ….

I am hoping to expand this gorgeous growing space … to maximise the space “artfully” and “efficiently” … by creating  a vertical garden … I am hoping that I can keep it simple and use my imagination ….

So how have I set this up ….

I have bought some troughs  that are connected via cable ties ….  and some plastic piping approx 16 cm diameter …. this has been included to assist with the watering of the troughs … with 3 holes drilled into the pipe in each trough x 2.

I am hoping to add some irrigation pipe into the top of each pipe and support how the plants will need watering … more photos to follow …

So far I have potted  some fuchsias, a climbing clematis, a hosta, some sage, chives and basil.  I will be adding tomatoes, cauliflowers and a whole host of other veggies … creating an edible wall … as well as herbs …

Photos to follow …
