Oh wow, I like this too. I'll have to research this...like how do they get the plants to stay in the box?! I also like the boxes themselves. I am hoping to build a similar one soon for a tabletop salad garden.

Hey! I believe the vertical herbal garden is not hard to build. One planter is below another in a way that leaves when reaching to the sun grow only to one side. Here is a pic: vertical planter, vertical wall herbal garden I want to build one too!

My question would be how to water it.

Inside the house environment.

Wow, that's pretty awesome (not really a word I use that often!). Love how pretty they look as well as practical.

Idon't know if you can do vertical planting, but I am doing an art project in which I give out seeds of trees that survived the atomic bombing to the people of US and the world. If you are interested, come see my blog at http://treeproject.blogspot.com and I can send you the seeds.

I was wondering in particular where the final image is from. There's a low wall along the side of my roof garden that I would love to run into a green wall of herbs. From the angle of that photo, I can't tell if it is a Wooly Pocket, or some other solution.

I do not remember where the bottom image is from. Maybe from Apartment Therapy or somebofy's DIY project I found on google images.. But thanks for mentioning Wooly Pocket, I looked them up and I think now I might have to blog about them. winkwink

Do you have a list of the herbs in that garden?
 on  09/15  at  11:20 AM

I am an avid veggy gardener with a limited amount of space. I think this is a brilliant and very space effective application. It's something I probably will investigate further as we attempt to grow herbs every year now.

What a wonderful idea. I must experiment with this. It is visually impressive and also extremely useful. How about watering? Does it get difficult to water?

I'm definitely going to give this a try in the spring. This is the newest thing and I think it's genius!!

A really easy way to do this vertical herb garden is to use an old shoe organizer, the ones that hang up and have space for the shoes, usually a stronger plastic, just fill these spaces up with soil.

Beautiful.Thank you!

I read this piece of writing completely on the topic of the resemblance of most up-to-date and previous technologies, it's remarkable article.
 on  04/14  at  04:11 AM

I'm now not positive where you're getting your information, but good topic. I must spend some time finding out more or figuring out more. Thanks for great information I used to be in search of this info for my mission.

I like this planter a lot! I would like to try to grow my herbs in a vertical planter.

I have been gardening professionally for over 30 years. I found the perfect system vertical garden which takes only 5 minutes to assemble and recycles the same water, so you cut down on water usage by 95% and cut growing time in half. Fits in an area the size of a trash can. Called aeroponics.
