Get creative with planter pots, recycled materials, bright colours and different plant varieties to bring life to your home.
Perfect for a small terrace or balcony, why not create your own vertical garden. All you need is a used wooden pallet. The more used it looks, the better. Attach plastic boxes behind the pallet where the holes in the wood appear. Make sure to drill holes into the bottom of the boxes if there aren’t any already to let the water drain. Add your plant varieties, be sure to use a mix, and wait for the magic to happen — it is the perfect DIY vertical garden for the home.
The Small Garden sells these great material pockets, perfect for planting an indoor hanging garden. It’s called a Wally, they come in two different sizes and are made of 100 per cent recycled plastic bottles. An environmentally-conscious piece of growing art.
Pick up a vintage-looking bicycle from a local garage sale or buy one online. Nowadays, a vintage bike is a cute garden accessory. Use the front basket as a planter box, attach another planter box on the back and your portable garden is ready to go. Fill it with colourful flowers and herbs and either leave it on your front porch, on the balcony or in your sun room.
Air plants like Tillandsia don’t need any soil so they are the perfect indoor hanging plant. What they do need, though, is lots of bright light and water. The Small Room has these great hanging pods. Just tuck them in the pod and they’re ready to hang either inside or out.
