INSTALLING A VERTICAL GARDEN

Sooooooooo… I have a vertical garden!!!! Technically I’ve had it for almost 6 months but an impending move prevented me from installing it, until i lost patience and thought &#$%% i’ll move this
too with other things when need be..

Originally i had only 3 of the 6 panels but once they were in place, i realized there was perfect space for 3 more.. Since the electrician had to be back on the morning for the final touch, i rushed(my hubby) to buy 3 more..In my defense, the store is only at a distance of 5 mins from our home.

I have wanted a vertical garden since ages and spotting it at a local chain grocery store was nothing less than a magical moment..

Off the topic, this store, SAVEMAX, has an absolutely amazing selection of innovative planters at a great price.I have also noticed that the plastic used retains it’s color n texture better than what i have bought from local shops and it is in the same price range, if not cheaper.

So, each panel has 3 planters that only need to be snapped onto the base that is drilled to the wall. The panels themselves fit into each other to form a neat grid. That’s it!

Now the most important question is, what to grow in the beautiful little boxes of joy..? As of now i have cherry tomatoes and strawberries in mind as they make one of the cutest hanging plants in the edible category. For a touch of glamour, i plan to throw in a few marigolds.. What would you suggest?

P.S. While getting this set up, i also gave a few wall planters to the electrician for drilling. Looking at the volume of plants on my terrace he asked me.. “madam apka nursery ka kaam hai kya”(Do you run/own a nursery?)

    Hi Yasmeen,

    How are you, good to see you still going strong with your passion.
    We connected few years back and discussed seed sharing which never materialized, and then i fell of the radar and gardening.
    I was going through you site and was heart warming to see how far you have come and how you were an encyclopedia for Indian gardening.

    I am planning to buy some lilies, (lilium, Oriental and other lilies) . Could you please direct me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    Hey! so good to hear from you.. Co-incidentally I’ve bought some oriental lilies recently from Garden Glory and the bulbs were already sprouting when i received them. Since i was late in planting them they are on a restart mode but the bulbs do look healthy enough. You can try their range of bulbs with reasonable prices.
