Whether you want to make better use of gardening space or simply add interest to a fence or wall, this book gives you the knowledge and techniques you need to grow a vertical garden.
It covers every step of making a living wall, including selecting containers and location, creating a planting mix or soilless growing medium, choosing and starting plants, and how to water and care for the garden.
Advice is given for a wide range of plants: ferns, succulents and mosses as well as common decorative and edible plants. It provides instructions for 21 projects that can be adapted to the plants and containers you have on hand. Projects include a pollinator garden that attracts butterflies and bees, scent-and color-themed gardens, and an insulating wall garden that absorbs heat and sound.
