Catherine StewartDIY Vertical garden

This is a bit of a cheat post, as it’s a repeat from another blog but it’s such a great project I couldn’t resist sharing it with you. For those of you who don’t know what ‘landscaping paper’ is, it’s the same as geotextile fabric. For the plants I’d be choosing waterwise plants like succulents in a bright, sunny location, or tougher ferns (like Blechnum and Doodia) and small bromeliads in the shade.

So if you’ve got some old unclaimed pallets about, or even some fence palings surplus to requirements, have a go!
