Wall Gardening: A Small Space Solution

wall_garden_leevalley

We’ve got just enough room for people, plants, and patio table in our Brooklyn roof garden, but I’m wondering if we could squeeze in a wall garden? If we could push everything out 10 inches, we could turn the stairwell shed into a wall garden using this stackable wall garden from Lee Valley. Too bad the large wall garden unit is sold out.

You Grow Girl says gardeners must be wary of strawberry pots: “They have poor water distribution and tend to dry out quickly. Sometimes they’re ugly. Or the pockets are too small.” I wonder if that warning would apply to this wall garden container, with strawberry pot style pockets, too?

Smith & Hawken sells a wall garden too. And this wall garden from Oregon is just the inspiration I need to try it out next year:
